First for Scotland as electric cars join Aberdeen car club

Aberdeen City Council hopes to open residents and businesses up to the idea of electric motoring after adding an EV to the city’s car club.

The introduction of three Nissan LEAFs and an Mitsubishi i-MiEV has been joined by 17 charging points, dotted throughout Aberdeen, as part of the Government-run Plugged in Places scheme.

Councillor Willie Young, Labour MP for Bridge of Don, said the EVs’ integration marked the first time that Scottish car club members could hire an electric car.

“These cars fit in with our green agenda for Aberdeen, which I think is very important for this city,” he commented. “We want to encourage people to use electric cars and this is the way to do it.”

Alan Simpson, a planner from the council, added: “We want to lead by example and show people that electric cars are usable in everyday life. We are keen to do anything we possibly can to reduce emissions and anything that helps with that is good.”
