Bolloré Bluecar EV to be sold for 12,000 Euros, but you have to rent the battery

Innovative electric car on many levels Bolloré's electric Bluecar has beaten its own path so far, and that looks set to continue. Not only did it launch in France via the Paris Autolib car-sharing program (similar to what Velib does for bikes) and uses lithium-metal-polymer batteries coupled to a super-capacitor (something that no other commercially available EV currently does), but it will now go on sale to individuals without a battery pack.

What if a Nissan LEAF had a price tag of, say, $14,000 and then you had to rent the battery pack for $100/month? Or a Tesla Model S for $35,000 and then you paid $250/month for the battery? ...
