Renault Twizy electric vehicle available in French car-sharing scheme

Renault's Twizy electric car is now available to users of the Bluely car-sharing service in Lyon, France, in the first outcome of the Renault-Bollore joint venture.

Subscribers to the Bluely car-sharing service can now drive one of the 30 Renault Twizys available in the Lyon region network. By the end of 2015, there will be 110 Twizys in the Bluely (Lyon) and Bluecub (Bordeaux) networks, along with Bolloré's Bluecars.

"Twizy Bluely is the first concrete result of our partnership with Group Bolloré on car sharing and electric vehicle usage. It addresses the twin challenges of urban transport and air quality," said Philippe Buros, senior vice-president, France market region, for Renault.

Renault and Bollore formed the partnership with the purpose of developing full electric vehicle car-sharing solutions.
