New car club in Surrey includes plug-in hybrids
City Car Club has been appointed as the council’s preferred car club provider following a competitive tender process and will supply vehicles in on and off-street parking bays near homes and offices in Guildford, Redhill, Dorking, Leatherhead and Woking.
A total of 14 low emission vehicles, including two plug-in hybrids, will initially be offered and there are already plans to expand further, with another five vehicles (including two fully electric cars) due to launch in Guildford in April 2016.
Mike Goodman, Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning at Surrey County Council, said: “We’re pleased to invite City Car Club on board as they provide a good alternative to car ownership through pay-as-you-go motoring, enhancing the number of different sustainable transport options available to Surrey residents.
“We want to encourage people to travel smart and car clubs like this are environmentally friendly and good value for money.”
