An electric car share called Autolib’ has been a hit in Paris, with more than 3,300 of its distinctive silver hatchbacks cruising the streets or recharging at curbside stands. Users can pick up a car at any of nearly 1,000 stands, then drop it off at a stand near their destination, for as little as 20ยข a minute. No surprise, then, that London and other cities outside France have looked at replicating the four-year-old program.
 What may be more surprising is that the first city to take the plunge is Indianapolis.
