Scottish car clubs gain £1 million fund for EVs

Car clubs in Scotland are about to benefit from electric vehicles added to their fleet.

Transport Scotland has awarded £1 million to the shared mobility charity, Carplus to fund electric vehicles for Scotland’s growing car club sector. It expected that the fund will be enough for 40 electric cars. They won’t be the first electric cars to be put to work in Scottish car clubs; Aberdeen already has three Nissan LEAFs and one Mitsubishi i-MiEV working as part of a Co-Wheels run car club.

The latest expansion of EVs in car clubs is supported by the Developing Car Clubs in Scotland (DCCS) programme, first launched by Carplus in 2010 and funded by Scotland’s transport body. In 2012, the programme first trialled the use of electric vehicles in car clubs, ahead of a full introduction.
