The Blue Car, an electric-car program that Pininfarina has been working on with French firm BollorÃ©, is one of the most anticipated projects from Italian design firm. Rumors had started that after the death of Pininfarina CEO Andrea Pininfarina, chances of a production version of the Blue Car had come to an end.
However, Reuters, who recently spoke with an executive of BollorÃ©, says that the French company will begin taking orders starting next summer. The company is also reported to be interested in acquiring a lithium mine in the Uyuni region of Bolivia.
BollorÃ© plans on building 10,000 batteries annually for the Blue Car which is targeted to have a 124-mile range between charges.
