PSA Peugeot Citroen has signed a cooperation agreement with car-sharing company Bollore, covering distribution and production of an electric quadricycle for the company’s services.

Bollore controls the Souce London network of charging points that Boris Johnson set up in 2011.  

The car, dubbed Bluesummer, was designed by Bollore and has a claimed urban driving range of 200km (124 miles). The cars will be produced from September and the companies said the plant in Rennes, France, could produce up to 3500 vehicles a year.

PSA ruled out selling a Citroen or Peugeot version of the Bluesummer: “The vehicle is unbranded except for Bolloré and we have had no communication to suggest this will change,” a PSA spokeswoman told BusinessCar.

The two companies will also work on deploying electric car-sharing schemes in Europe.

Bollore currently operates an electric vehicle sharing schemes in French cities including Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux.

“The agreement signed between our two companies reflects the vision that Vincent Bolloré and I share of clean, sustainable mobility solutions that enable us to provide our customers with the freedom to get around, which we consider a fundamental right in today’s society,” said Carlos Tavares, chairman of PSA Peugeot Citroen.
