Ease and Convenience
E-Car can guide you through the process of setting up a fully electric car club, giving valuable advice during the planning, infrastructure installation and development phases through to launch… and beyond.
“ It’s been a revelation having E-Car based in St Andrews. We now have 3 locations within the University where local residents, University Students and Staff can collect their E-Car from and enjoy zero emission car travel. The take up from students has been particularly good in the early stages with huge numbers signing up and trying the cars. Our targets now is to increase awareness amongst staff and local residents whilst looking at other sites across the town where the car can be based thus serving a larger part of the University and town.”
Alistair Macleod, Transition University of St Andrews
“The University of Hertfordshire has worked with E-Car for over two years in developing the UK’s first EV car club for the Higher Education sector. In that time the car club continues to grow its membership, and plays an important role as part of the University’s overall Travel Plan offer, providing affordable access to a modern fleet of EV vehicles. We look forward to building on our initial success and maintaining our relationship with E-Car so that our University community can continue to benefit from this emerging sector”.
