A French company has launched a fleet of carbon-free cars in Indianapolis.
A French electric car sharing company has landed in the United States with ambitions to create the biggest carbon-free automotive network in the country.
The company, Bolloré, is establishing its beachhead not in San Francisco, Seattle, or any of the usual coastal hot spots of green living but in Indianapolis, the conservative capital of a coal-dependent Midwestern state.
BlueIndy launched Wednesday in Indianapolis with 50 cars and more than 100 charging stations, making it one of the largest electric vehicle sharing programs in the U.S. (San Diego’s Car2Go network went online in 2011, and its fleet has 400 vehicles.) By the end of the year, BlueIndy plans to have 200 cars available for rent.
The service, which is designed for trips lasting 20 to 30 minutes, is modeled after Autolib’, Bolloré’s E.V. car sharing operation in Paris that is considered the largest in the world.
