Bluecub car sharing scheme gains first Renault Twizys

A total of 20 Renault Twizys are now being operated on and have been specially adapted for connection to the Bordeaux subscription system and call centre to enable a recharging process the same as that for the Bluecars: the driver just shows his/her subscriber's badge at the charge terminal and plugs the car in.

The new Twizys join the Bluecub fleet following the addition of Renault Twizys to the Bluely service in Lyon in April 2015 with plans to make a total of 110 Renault Twizys available across the Bolloré Bluely service in Lyon and the Bluecub service in Bordeaux by the end of this year.

The move forms part of the Renault-Bolloré joint venture announced last September and which also saw the firms announce that Renault is to build Bluecar electric vehicles including a possible three-seater version for the Bolloré Group’s car sharing schemes.
