Paris Will Resume Service Of 1,000 Autolib Charging Stations
Autolib’s charging infrastructure is to be partially resumed
According to latest news some 1,000 out of 6,200 charging points (single-phase, ≈3 kW) will be reopened on December 1, 2018, which sounds like good news to us.
The other good news is that charging stations will be available – at least temporarily – for €10 monthly (subscription) with unlimited access!
However, soon three new car-sharing systems will be launched in Paris (announced by Renault, PSA Group and smart’s car2go) with a total of some 1,500 EVs. If the city will not resume more charging stations, it will become crowded at those terminals again.
It’s never easy to solve problems after unprofitable enterprises and we will be watching how Paris will be able to emerge from troubles and deal with several competing car-sharing systems.
