Enterprise Car Club is launching a zero emissions electric vehicle car club in Fife after teaming up with Ore Valley Housing Association.
The project has been financially supported by Transport Scotland and delivered through the Energy Saving Trust and the Plugged-in Households Programme.
It is part of its wide scale plans to engage communities in more sustainable electric vehicles and mobility.
Ellie Grebenik, senior programme manager at Energy Saving Trust, said: “The Transport Scotland initiative to encourage Scottish communities to use electric vehicles is a top priority, and demonstrates that electric vehicles are a great solution for many journeys.
“The introduction of the electric Enterprise Car Club through the Ore Valley Housing Association is one of a number of electric car clubs being deployed across Scotland as part of Plugged-in Households round one which aims to ensure sustainable transport solutions are available for everyone in Scotland.”
The initiative will see four fully electric plug-in Nissan Leafs located at Cardenden and Lochgelly from this Friday.
Those aged 19 and over can hire the cars from as little as £5 an hour including VAT and start their journey soon after.
Residents of Ore Valley Housing Association will receive on year’s free membership to Enterprise Car Club, and the first 50 new members will receive £50 worth of driving credit.
Diane Mulholland, general manager of Enterprise Scotland & Northern Ireland, said: “The development of this electric car club through Ore Valley Housing Association is a great example of how Scotland is leading the way in encouraging shared access, use of electric and hybrid vehicles and integration of transport.
“Our Enterprise Car Club programme in Scotland is one of the most active and diverse in the UK.
“Businesses, the public sector, and local communities are getting behind shared transport and experiencing the significant benefits that Car Club access can bring, including significant savings and reduced emissions.”
The new Enterprise Car Club vehicles are located at 114-116 Station Road, Cardenden, KY5 0BW and at 93 Main Street, Lochgelly, KY5 9AF.
