The first 125 electric cars are expected on the road in the middle of next year. Under the project, BlueSG, a subsidiary of Bollore, will install 2,000 charging points throughout the island by the end of the decade.
Bollore has electric vehicle-sharing operations in Paris, Bordeaux and Lyon in France, Indianapolis in the United States and Turin in Italy.
The group's plans to launch a new electric car-sharing scheme in London were delayed due to unfinalized contract talks with the capital's local councils. ■
