Bolloré Bluecar - Any BlueSG user here? Share your experience here!

The Bolloré Bluecar is a small four-seat, three-door electric car supplied by Bolloré, designed by Pininfarina and manufactured by Cecomp in Bairo, Italy, under a joint venture owned by Bolloré and Pininfarina called Vehicule Électriques Pininfarina Bolloré (VEPB). The car has a 30kWh lithium metal polymer (LMP) battery, coupled to a supercapacitor, that provides an electric range of 250 km (160 mi) in urban use, and a maximum speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).[1]

Originally shown as the Pininfarina B0 concept car in 2008, the production version was launched in 2011 with the first 250 production version Bluecars deployed as part of the Autolib' carsharing program in Paris on December 5, 2011.[2] In October 2012, the Bluecar first became available to retail customers through leasing,[3] and sales began in February 2013 at a price of €19,000 plus a monthly fee of €80 for the batteries.[4] As of September 2016, a total of 5,689 units had been registered in France, most of which are in service for the Autolib' program.[5][6] The Bolloré Bluecar was the top selling highway-capable electric car in that country in 2012.

BlueSG have Car Sharing Plan and Charging rental. I think it is sooner or later we will use them for charging electric car in HDB areas.

For car sharing,

Let's say I am staying at tampines and I am going to novena.

Let's say I take about 15 min to start, park and anything else. The total time for this trip is 33mins.

$8/mth

$0.33/min x 33 = $10.89 (plus my return trip back home) = $21.78

I think the charges is quite reasonable. 🤔 Considering that if I return the car to the blueSG charging point, there is no parking fee. I think is a sweet deal.

For charging,

Assuming I have a Mini Cooper SE.

The total range is about 180km there about. assuming I need to charge every 5 days.

And assuming I need to charge 2 hours each time to get a full charge. per charge is only $2!

$20/mth

$2 for every 5 days (Per month is only $21)

Woah. If this calculation is correct, then electric car is very very cheap.

Now not many electric cars around, so the charging point no business, so the charging fee is consider cheap. Imagine next time when there are more electric cars need to charge, think the charges might be more ex?! Lol.

Hmmm. I think not an issue. You charge 2 hours, you need to go down and drive the car to another car park lor. And can book the charging point at a specific timing. I thinking of saving money to buy an electric car 10 year later. hahahahhaha.

Charging point is BlueSG one mah. I only pay them the membership fee monthly, and the charging point rental. 

the battery replacement is a bit pessimistic le. Maybe there will be a battery warranty programme that we can buy into? If that 's the case, I will pay it like a insurance. hahah.

Actually EV is dirt cheap, best if you have solar panels + batteries in your house, then the cost of running the car is almost free..

This vehicle is not designed well. Miserable 67 horsepower and top speed of 110km/h (throttling start at 105)

Cabin and battery noise is very high when cruising on highway (80-100km/h).

When booking the vehicle, drop off location is subject to availability. So if no more lots at your ideal location, need to take public transport back home.

In a nut shell, only for light users who don't wish/unable to financially support owning a car.

But find this BlueSG more flexible than others car sharing, at least can have the option of returning the car at any availability location. However i find the car seems like too flimsy and not very safe le.

The way I see ppl park the electric car is hopeless. Such a small car and such a big lot and yet ppl can still park like idiots. It's something like those rental bicycles, things prone to being abused. The ppl who use them like never own a car before. What am I saying?😂 Obviously some have never but nevertheless parking is a skill every driver must have before getting their license.

I got one question to ask... Is the aircon cold? hahahha. I think the noise and roughness of the car are inevitable. The car is so small. how to pack so many things inside.

I have faith in our gahmen. No matter what you think the savings might be now, when the tech gets much wider adoption, they'll find a way to claw it all back and then some. Just like with CNG. 

So... have faith. 😂

Oh, I'm sure it's very safe. 

I see the way blueSG drivers drive, I'm sure they have full faith in the crashworthiness of their cars. 😂

Oh. Not me lah. I am not a competitive one.  I practice stoic. If I have a roof, I will appreciate it. If I have extra money, I prefer to help the needy ones.

It is like a competition, you are competing with people who don't even care about you. For what. Unless I have 3 wifes, and 8 kids. Then no choice lah, landed is a must. 😂

But of cuz, I have my vices too. I like cars. So yah. Die die will drive. hahha.
