Communauto, North America's oldest car sharing company, has made a commitment to add 50 Nissan Leafs to its Quebec- and Montreal-based fleets by early 2012. Right now, Communauto has 15 Leafs ready for car-sharing duty, with the rest of the electric hatchbacks expected to arrive within the next six months.

According to CBC News, Montreal is jumping into the car-sharing game. The city is set introduce a pay-by-the-minute network of 400 vehicles spread through downtown, similar to the already-in-place Bixi bike sharing system. The idea is that patrons would be able to nab any car at any time without having to fuss with a reservation. The project is headed by Communauto, which has yet to get full approval from the city council, so details are still murky at the moment.
