Pininfarina has announced they signed an agreement with Cecomp and Bollore to build 4,000 Bluecars for France's Autolib car sharing service.
While the company declined to release specifications, the Bluecar concept featured a Lithium Metal Polymer (LMP) battery which enabled it to travel up to 250 km (155 miles) on a single charge. Furthermore, the car's electric motor allowed the EV to accelerate from 0-60 km/h (0-37 mph) in 6.3 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 130 km/h (80 mph).
If everything goes according to plan, Autolib will offer the Bluecar for rent in Paris and 40 other municipalities starting in October 2011.
