Paris Planning An Electric Car Share System

The mayor of Paris recently announced plans to implement an electric car share system.  While details are still sparse, it appears that they will be building an infrastructure to support 2,000 EV’s within Paris, and another 2,000 cars will be distributed amongst the surrounding cities.  At an estimated price-tag of $14 million dollars to both build the infrastructure and purchase the vehicles, the system is not only affordable, but is yet another example of movement away from a product driven model towards a service-focused one.  There are a wide variety of immediate implications to this program, ranging from reduced traffic to reduced carbon emissions.  And some long range ones, including encouraging manufacturers to build vehicles that last longer (thus reducing the long-term cost of the vehicle fleet).
