Electric Car Club for the Roseland – An Alternative To Car Ownership!

Do you own a car that is only rarely used? Have you ever needed to use a car for just a few hours or for a day? Maybe you have a second car that isn’t used much but costs a bomb to get through the MOT every year? In fact, simply owning a car costs around £3,000 per year in terms of running costs and depreciation – and all for something that might not even move 95% of the time!

That’s why, as part of REACT’s mission to help people on the Roseland lead more sustainable lifestyles and reduce carbon emissions, we want to bring an electric car club to the Roseland, partnering with Co Cars. Co Cars is a not-for-profit cooperative social enterprise that already successfully runs a growing network of electric cars in Truro, Falmouth, Plymouth and Exeter.

As a Co Cars member, you can book any car in their network. Electric cars can be hired from as little £5.50 per hour,(£40 for 24 hrs or £11 for 7pm – 7am) for an all-inclusive price that covers charging at the Co Cars charger, insurance, tax and roadside assistance. (For more details have a look at Co Cars website)

Each car club car also reduces the pressure on car parking spaces as well as helping our environment by tackling congestion and pollution.

To help us gauge interest in Co Cars coming to the Roseland, please take a couple of minutes to complete our short survey https://bit.ly/ElectricRoseland which will be live until 30th September.
