Indianapolis to offer electric car-sharing service

INDIANAPOLIS – A French company is unveiling its first electric car charging station in Indianapolis, where drivers will be able to rent plug-in cars to run errands later this year.

Bollore Group Chairman Vincent Bollore will join Mayor Greg Ballard for Monday’s ribbon-cutting at the downtown charging station that’s part of the company’s $35 million partnership with the city.

Ballard spokesman Marc Lotter said the public can try out one of Bollore’s Bluecars starting Tuesday at that site.

But the electric car service won’t be up and running until year’s end, when 125 cars will be available at 25 charging sites. Bollore plans to eventually have 500 electric cars in Indianapolis.

Lotter says Indianapolis’ electric car-sharing service will be the nation’s largest.

Bollore operates a successful electric car-sharing service in Paris.
