Paris’ Electric Car Rental Scheme - 22 Apr 2013
Recent and archive images relating to Paris Autolib’ electric cars, which is showcasing France’s gamble on electric vehicle
technology in a project that backers say is even helping to narrow the capital’s social divide.

Modelled on the "Velib" bike-sharing programme, "Autolib" has won 70,000 clients since its launch in late 2011. Drivers pick
up one of the electric cars at a recharging bay, make their journey and leave it at another for other Parisians to use.
