This October, 70 Toyota i-ROAD and approximately 30 charging stations will be open for service in Grenoble, a city in southeastern France, as part of a local car-sharing program. The program is becoming a reality thanks to a partnership between the City of Grenoble, Grenoble-Alpes Métropole, EDF Group, Toyota, and Citélib.

The project partners are offering the city a service which will allow a real-life, thorough evaluation of the potential of this new form of mobility.

“The Grenoble-Alpes Métropole community has always been open to innovation,” explains Christophe Ferrari, President of the Grenoble-Alpes Métropole. “It’s a great opportunity for our community to test, for three years and exclusively in Europe, a new mode of mobility that’s not only innovative but also economic and ecological It's an experimentation that is bound to be followed by others for the benefit of our citizens.”
