Paris to offer cheap green car renting

It appears that Paris' mayor, Bertrand Delanoƫ, recently announced live on radio that he is to introduce a new system to offer cheap eco-friendly car renting to its citizens, in a very similar structure offered as for bicycles, such as in Barcelona (see earlier post):

The service, defined as "as-you-wish rental of non-polluting vehicles" would require citizens to register and obtain a card. With that card, they would be able to take a vehicle at one of the hundreds of stations available and drop it at one near their destination. The deployment of this system is scheduled for several years, due to the complexity of the project (for instance, Barcelona's bicing system has been deployed in 4 months - and they're bikes).
