New Edinburgh car club deal to put focus on EVs
The scheme is being run by Enterprise Car Club under a four-year contract with the City of Edinburgh Council and builds on the existing scheme to further drive down carbon emissions, reduce congestion and ease parking pressure across the city.
Enterprise Car Club will be working in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council to introduce more efficient vehicle technologies and greater access to vehicles to increase the sustainability of the scheme.
The contract will also give council staff will have access to a fleet of vehicles suitable to their car sharing requirements. Transport Convener Councillor Lesley Hinds said: “This is really good news for the city. By signing up Enterprise Car Club to provide an improved citywide car-sharing scheme across the Capital, we're helping promote a convenient, reliable alternative to private car ownership, which will cut down on congestion and competition for parking places as well as slashing carbon emissions.
“It's great to see that Enterprise Club shares our commitment to improving Edinburgh's environment and cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions; ridding their fleet of diesel vehicles and agreeing to provide at least 12 electric vehicles clearly demonstrates that they're on board with this mission.”
