For the launch of car2go in Amsterdam last November, Radio Netherland Worldwide produced this nice 3 minute history of EV carsharing there. It's in English.
It has some nice pictures of Witkar ("White Carts"), an earlier attempt at an EV carsharing service from the 1970s, a short comment from its founder Luud Schimmelpinnik; pictures of an even earlier EV from 1914 (!) and a comment from a skeptic of the whole idea. Enjoy.
