Bolloré, well known for its electirc carsharing projects launched in Paris (Autolib), Bordeaux (Bluecub) and Lyon (BlueLy) in France, as well as in Indianapolis (BlueIndy) and recently Turin (BlueTorino) in Italy…is now coming also to Singapore (BlueSG).
The French company won the project in Singapore after more than a year of evaluation.
“Bollore’s proposal was chosen from among 13 proposals after more than a year of evaluation by government agencies under the joint leadership of Singapore’s Land Transport Authority and the Economic Development Board, the city-state’s transport minister, Khaw Boon Wan, said at the signing ceremony for the deal.”
BlueSG is scheduled to launch in mid-2017 with 125 cars, and by 2020 reach 1,000 cars. Number of charging points to hit 2,000.
On the other hand, Bolloré still struggles to finalize a contract in London.
“The group’s plans to launch a new electric car-sharing scheme in London were delayed due to unfinalized contract talks with the capital’s local councils.”
