Penzance Electric Car Club – We need your views!

20th April 2021 in Council News, Environment

As part of our Climate Emergency Action Plan, we are currently in discussions with Co Cars about introducing a shared electric car club for Penzance.

Have you ever needed to use a car for just a few hours? Maybe you have a second car that isn’t used much. With many people now working from home, which looks set to continue into the future, many cars will just be sitting on the drive or on the street more often.

Co Cars is looking at the viability of bringing shared, electric cars to locations around Penzance. They are a not-for-profit, co-operative social enterprise that already successfully runs a network of shared, low and zero-emission cars across the South West.

The company also runs the Co Bikes electric bike sharing scheme. Co Bikes are also a great alternative to the car for many shorter trips. And because they’re electrically assisted, you can zip along and tackle hills, all without breaking a sweat!

If we want this to happen in our locality we’ve got to show our support. So please help Co Cars gauge interest in coming to Penzance – the survey will only be live until early May.
