6,000 sign up to Paris Autolib
The Paris Autolib service has got off to a great start, with twice the number of people - 6,000 - signing up to its EV club rental scheme. It needs 80,000 members to break even though, so a long way still to go.
There are 250 Bollore Bluecars currently, increasing to 3,000 by December 2012 as the scheme rolls out. See video.
On the downside, 40 of the 250 Bollore Bluecars have been vandalised. Ouch.
