The Bolloré Group, which operates all-electric car sharing services in Indianapolis and several European cities, plans to expand to Los Angeles.
The new BlueLA service is scheduled to open in 2017. It will start off with 200 public charging points and 100 EVs. No details are on offer at this time, so we don’t know whether the service will use Bolloré’s own Bluecar, which is built by Renault and features solid-state batteries made by another Bolloré division.
BlueLA plans to focus on disadvantaged communities. It will initially be available in Westlake, Pico Union, portions of Koreatown, areas north of USC, and parts of Downtown Los Angeles.
