Pininfarina’s Blue Car electric-vehicle project moving forward

The Blue Car, an electric-car program that Pininfarina has been working on with French firm Bolloré, 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 Bolloré, 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.

Bolloré plans on building 10,000 batteries annually for the Blue Car which is targeted to have a 124-mile range between charges.
