World Streets updates the latest addition to Parisian streets:

As electric vehicles reduce oil consumption and vehicle carbon emissions on a per-kilometre basis, a team from the International Energy Agency recently checked out the innovative Parisian car-sharing system that allows tourists and residents to criss-cross Paris for a modest fee – and an even more attractive cost in carbon emissions: zero.

  1. “…carbon emissions: zero” ??? Shouldn’t we count the emissions generated by the production of the electricity?

  2. @Michael – that claim is certainly on the autolib web page, but no explanation is offered. Perhaps it is due to the fact the France relies on nuclear power for much of its electricity. And it is also possible that Autolib buys electricity from renewable sources.
