Two recent announcements provide evidence that the major industry groups are beginning to take EVs and urban car sharing schemas more seriously-at least in France.

Toyota is providing the eastern city of Grenoble with electric vehicles for the new Cite lib by HoMo car sharing schema: 35 of the innovative three wheelers and similar number of more conventional COMS four-wheeler will be available for three-year pilot program.

Renault has joined with Bollore, which has provided the vehicles in the infrastructure for several already successful schemas, including Lyon, Bordeaux and Paris where well over 2000 cars are in operation under the auto lib banner
