Plug, pay and drive in Paris


Small fleets of pay-as-you-drive electric cars have found a spot on the crowded streets of Paris. We saw these Autiolib' vehicles around the corner from our hotel on Rue de Rivoli.

The rental service started with more than 1,200 cars and parking spots where they rest for recharge.

A subscription cost €10 a day or €15 a week. A recent newspaper story said soaring insurance and parking costs have already persuaded 25% of French citizens to cut back or give up on using their cars.
