Renault partners with Bolloré to extend EV car sharing scheme

Renault partners with Bolloré to extend EV car sharing scheme

Electric car sharing schemes have been given a major boost following the creation of a new partnership between Renault and Bolloré. The letter of intent recently signed by the two groups addresses potential improvements in three key areas: the implementation of new car sharing solutions, increased production of Bluecars, and the development of a new 3-seater EV.
 
The French investment group Bolloré has supplied Autolib’, Paris's car-sharing service, with Bluecar electric vehicles ever since its launch in 2011 – and now the partnership with Renault is set to extend the initiative within and beyond the French capital.

Renault ZOE: cold weather tests

Renault ZOE: cold weather tests
Vehicle powertrains and mechanical components are subjected to tough conditions in winter. So we have to make sure that the cars we put on the road can resist extreme temperatures. Other components apart from the engine are closely monitored. The gearbox, for example, must not be restricted or slowed down by extreme cold.

EVs get smarter thanks to interoperability

EVs get smarter thanks to interoperability
As global sales of electric vehicles continue to rise, efforts are being made to ensure that the charging infrastructure is future proof and that EVs – no matter where they are built or driven – have compatible charging systems.
