Car sharing for the Healthcare sector
Reducing costs and carbon emissions whilst giving back to the local community
E-Car provides a sustainable fleet management solution to NHS Trusts and other Healthcare institutions.
Many Healthcare Trusts and organisations face a number of issues related to sizeable transport expenditure including: unnecessary staff journeys; inflated mileage claims; lack of visibility on substantial grey fleet mileage; underutilised pool cars; expensive taxi journeys; and onerous duty of care responsibilities.
How does E-Car help the Healthcare sector?
The E-Car model provides a fully managed service that helps Healthcare institutions tackle spiralling transport costs by:
- Reducing total business miles driven
- Maximising utilisation of a given vehicle
- Offering an alternative to taxis for those without a personal vehicle
- Providing greater visibility on staff business travel
Additional benefits of E-Car schemes:
- Provides a low carbon travel solution and helps fulfil emissions reduction targets

Ease and Convenience
E-Car removes the hassle out of managing your fleet of vehicles (incl. booking system, insurance, and invoicing), whilst simultaneously saving costs – an increasingly significant issue within the Healthcare sector.
Our work with E-Car was aimed at setting up a six car electric vehicle project to reduce business miles within our Trust as a cost saving and to reduce our carbon footprint. We were very pleased with the fast implementation of the project. The team have been extremely helpful in providing advice and instructions on the booking and driving of the vehicles. The team have been excellent in interpreting our requirements and the clear, precise data on the usage they have provided for us has enabled us to provide meaningful reports to our Sustainability Development Committee. What we appreciated most about working with E-Car was the friendly, professional response to our requests and the timely delivery of results. We would recommend E-Car to anyone wishing to explore the use of electric vehicles.
