Parisian Bollore Electric Car Is Cheap; Requires Battery Rental

Until now, if you’d wanted to drive aBollore Bluecar electric vehicle, all you’d have required as a few Euros per hour to take one of the little vehicles around the crowded roads of Paris, France.

Bollore has now put the Bluecar on sale to the French public, at a starting price of 12,000 Euros–only $15,500.

As electric cars go, that’s pretty cheap–though as L’énergie D’avancer writes (viaAutoblog Green), that price doesn’tinclude batteries, which you have to rent on a monthly basis.

Battery rental costs 80 Euros (just over $100) monthly, for unlimited mileage. That’s very similar to France’s other new electric car, the Renault Zoe. The Zoe retails for a little more than the Bluecar, at 13,700 Euros, and battery rental with limited mileage starts at 79 Euros.

Both retail prices include France’s 7,000 Euro ($9,000) electric vehicle incentive.

The Bluecar seats four, tops out at 75 mph and has a range of up to 155 miles in the city (93 miles at highway speeds), significantly more than that offered by other electric vehicles its size.
