    I'm a bit surprised this car hasn't been discussed more here. This car seems to have the longest range of pretty much any non-Tesla EV out there. And deliveries to customers is starting now.

    Maybe it's because it's only available for leasing. (Maybe the crushers are on stand-by.)

    Received this email from bluecar:

    I was also referred to this brochure:
    Brochure - Bluecar by Pininfarina


    I think given the 30 kWh battery that the €300/month is pretty good. They claim 90 miles + on the highway and 150 miles + in city.

    Given it also seems to have just a 3 month minimum rental term it looks interesting.

    David - can you say some more about driving it?

    What can I say - it's a car!

    Within the limitations of the Geneva test track (maybe 40mph max), it was plenty quick enough. Probably a bit slower than the Focus EV, but it is set up for urban use. The cabin was functional, but this was a Paris Autolib car and so was likely designed for the rigours of that environment. The interior of the one in the brochure looks more posh.
