4 Roues Sous 1 Parapluie has worked for 5 years on converting all of its fleet of Paris touring 2CVs to electric power.  Company founder Florent Dargnies first introduced their first electric 2CV in September of 2010 during Electric Mobility Days organized by Paris City Hall.

Citroën plans to present it’s own eco-friendly vehicle at COP 21 on Monday December 7th, rumored to be an electric version of the CactusM modernized Mehari concept they introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show.    At the moment they are teasing the world on Twitter with a partial photo and the tag #ElectronLibre.
