    Default PSA thinks again about electric cars

    Bollore the group behind the Paris rental electrics have a partnership agreement with Renault to make the "Bluecar".
    They have now signed a strategic partnership with PSA who will make the "Bluesummer" at the Citroen factory at Rennes. This car is said to have a 200km range and is aimed at the summer beach market once occupied by the Mehari.

    Default Electric cars

    In 2007 we saw the install of strange curved pillars grouped along the kerbs in Paris.
    Turns out they were the locking-pillars for the introduction of the now successful " Velib" bike hire scheme.
    A scheme now seen in many famous cities of the world ( hmmm.. is Melbourne really world-famous...? )

    Now we see these pillars , albeit in less numbers.
    Picture tells it all...Hire an electric car..short term rental.

    As people get used to them then Manufacturers will surely follow with supply.PSA thinks again about electric cars-img_2498.jpgPSA thinks again about electric cars-img_2502.jpg

    At the 2cv World Meeting (Salbris, France 2011 ) some guys were experimenting with electric drives in 2cv sedans.
    Main problem was bureaucratic ( what, in France?).
    I believe ( unless lost in translation) for them to commercially sell such a vehicle they needed the original manufacturers (engineering) approval once a certain percentage of the vehicle had been changed.
    Can you see today's "Citroen" approving ( backyard) design on 40 Y.O. cars.
    The famous French phrase "Ce n'est pas possible"/it is not possible ( spelling?) applies.
