Frequently asked questions

During COVID-19, Paris made major strides toward sustainable mobility, launching its public EV charging network called Belib’. This reflects the growing number of EV registrations in Paris, which increased by a whopping 41% from 2020 to 2021.

Paris is also pursuing efforts to increase the number of EV charging points by offering a 60 percent subsidy (up to €4,000) to businesses that install an EV charging station.

There are currently around 2,300 public EV charging stations in Paris, operated under the city’s Belib'public EV charging scheme. This doesn’t include any private EV charging stations or charge points installed by hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, or workplaces for use by their customers or employees.

The majority of publicly-accessible EV charging stations in the Belib' scheme are standard Level 2 AC charging stations, which can charge a typical EV in anywhere from 1 to 8 hours.

Belib' also operates 18 Level 3 DC fast charging stations, which can charge most EVs in under an hour.

Paris’ municipal Belib’ network has EV chargers installed across the city. Belib’ chargers are usually located in on-street parking bays, although many parking garages owned by the city are also equipped with public charging stations. This includes the Saemes Madeleine-Tronchet underground parking garage in the 8th Arrondissement, the largest public charging location in France with over 505 charging stations.

Other major parking garages, including Porte d’Auteuil and Jean-Bouin in the 16th Arrondissement, as well as Saint-Augustin Bergson in the 8th Arrondissement, are all EV charging hubs with dozens of charging stations.

On-street EV charging is available in many popular neighborhoods and around famous attractions such as Montmartre in the 18th

Arrondissement, the Latin Quarter in the 5th and 6th

Arrondissements, and Le Marais in the 3rd and 4th

Arrondissements. The popular Opéra neighborhood and the Montparnasse area are also well-equipped with on-street EV charging stations.
