Buzzing About Paris in Autolib Electric Car
MY wife and I, who live in the center of Paris, are invited to dinner in Boulogne-Billancourt, just to the southwest of the city. So I log on to Autolib’ and within a few minutes I’ve reserved a car across the street and a parking spot over in Boulogne, a couple of blocks from our destination.
Outside, I run my plastic Autolib’ card past a brightly lighted terminal, tap a few buttons, decouple an aluminum all-electric sedan from the charging post, hop in and set the GPS to the parking station where I am headed.
The radio knows my usual station, TSF Jazz, so all that remains is to put the stick in D and hum off. Twenty-one minutes later, I plug in the car at Boulogne-Billancourt and receive a receipt by text message: “Your rental lasted 21 minutes for the amount of 3.32 euros.” Voilà!
