Bolloré Now Trialing BlueLy Carsharing Service In Lyon Ahead of Launch
SEP 7 2013 BY MARK KANE
Starting today, Bolloré Group will offer a test preview of its BlueLy carsharing service in Lyon, France.
The French company wants to fully launch its carsharing service, cloned from Paris’ Autolib, on October 10 with 130 Bluecar electric vehicles and 50 charging stations.
The plan is to roughly double these numbers before the end of 2014 to 250 cars and 100 stations.
A third location (Bordeaux, France) for such project was announced earlier this year.
Next year, Bolloré would like to create carsharing in Indianapolis, Indiana, but not with Bluecars. The Nissan LEAF seems to likely vehicle for Bollore’s carsharing service in the US.
