Default Re: Lithium Urban Technologies launches electric cab service in Bangalore

Slightly OT, here is something I saw in Strasbourg last year: a self-service electric car rental point, rentable for an hour or more. There were three in the morning and one in the evening the same day (being charged in the photo), so the demand exists, at least in that city! The pic shows a Renault Zoe; in the morning there were two Zoes and a Fiat 500, maybe there are other models too...

For those interested in the subject, here's an article on Livemint:

Quote:
The plan worked, and soon it signed up British retailer Tesco Plc’s Bengaluru arm as its first customer.

Others such as Unisys Corp., Accenture Plc, Adobe Systems Inc. and VMware Inc. soon followed suit.

“We saw the partnership with Lithium as another way to reduce our carbon footprint while transporting our employees,” said a spokesman for VMware, Lithium’s biggest customer.

But Lithium’s appeal goes beyond being an environment-friendly business.

“We didn’t want people to buy it because it was green, because that means the audience would always be limited,” Krishnan said.
