OXFORD now has more shared electric vehicles per head of population than any other UK city with the roll out of 10 new car club EVs on the city’s streets.
The cars are available to anyone for pay-as-you-go hire which means residents and visitors to Oxford have more opportunity to make their journeys in a zero-emission car than anywhere else in the country.Read more
A fleet of 10 new electric cars are available on the Co-wheels fleet in Bristol, following funding from the European Union research project REPLICATE.
The 100% electric Renault Zoe cars will allow more people to rent zero emission vehicles in the city. The cars are based at nine locations across Bristol, including on-street parking at Brunswick Square, Stuart Street and Effingham Road.
Aberdeen City Council’s ambitious hydrogen programme in partnership with Co-wheels is set to reach an even wider audience with the addition of the first two cars available for public use.
The Toyota Mirai models will join our car club fleet in the city and are available now for members to hire through our app or our online booking system.
The Mirai, winner of the World Car Awards’ green car of the year award, uses hydrogen fuel cell technology to enable long-distance emission free motoring – with a range of about 300 miles.
Birmingham has chosen Co-wheels Car Club to take over the city’s car share operation for the next three years starting next week.
We will offer 20 low emission cars across the city which members can borrow instead of having to buy their own car. Co-wheels already has an established franchise operating in South Birmingham cars but from Monday, October 15, it will be expanding to operate from 10 fixed bays in the city centre, taking over from the current operator Enterprise Car Club.
In the coming months we will also be setting up new ‘floating’ bays operating from named streets but without a fixed parking spot. This will enable us to cover a much larger area of the city centre. Co-wheels is already signing up new members who want to use the service when it starts, offering a special membership launch offer on our Birmingham page.Read more
