Since 2007 the Bolloré Group has been associated with the famous coach-builder from Turin, Pininfarina, synonymous with excellence in car design. Together they produced the first concept car, the “B0” model of the Bluecar®. The current version of the Bluecar® is strongly influenced by this design, with the necessary modifications for it to meet the requirements of mass production. The Bluecar® is a clean, quiet and reliable all-electric vehicle. Bluecar® has developed a power electronics system devoted to the LMP® battery to obtain the best possible output from the engine.
The Bluecar has also been adopted by major groups such as HOP!, Air France, Atos, and SAMSIC, as well as many local authorities.
Since 2011, the Bolloré Group has developed, deployed and operated integrated, point-to-point car sharing solutions (without requiring return to the pick-up location) that use all-electric vehicles.
This innovative electric car sharing system – a forerunner for others worldwide – quickly settled within the urban landscape of major metropolitan areas.
Now available in Lyon and Bordeaux (France), in Turin (Italy), in Los Angeles (USA), and in Singapore, this car sharing system offers a flexible and affordable transport option that can meet the needs of both frequent and occasional users.
