Article by Christian A., on October 16, 2014

If you are planning to travel to Grenobles, France, you may be one of the first people to hire one of 70 Toyota electric vehicles parked around the city. You may be wondering why so many electric cars, right? Well, Grenobles is the first city where Toyota launched its car-sharing service outside Japan.

If everything goes ok, the car-sharing scheme, Toyota plans to expand to other cities after a three-year trial. According to the Japanese company, 35 three-wheel Toyota i-Road and 25 four-wheel Toyota Auto Body COMS will be available in this program.

The car-sharing scheme is seen as an extension of public transportation and for city residents, a vehicle can be rented for 5 euros per hour or for 17 euros for four hours.

“Grenobles draws its strength from its capacity to accompany emerging initiatives and turn them into successes for everyone’s benefit. By proposing a new clean mobility solution that complements bicycling and public transport, the trial ‘Cité lib by Ha:mo’ is in direct line with this tradition, “ said Jacques Wiart, Deputy Mayor in charge of Mobility and Urban Transport at the City of Grenobles.
