Funded by Transport Scotland and delivered through the Energy Saving Trust & the newly launched Plugged-in Households Programme, the new car club is part of a wider initiative to engage communities in more sustainable electric vehicles and shared mobility. Car clubs reduce the reliance on owned vehicles, leading to less congestion while the zero emission all-electric vehicles improve air-quality for all.
The initiative has launched an initial four fully electric Nissan LEAFs located at Cardenden and Lochgelly. Anyone over the age of 19 will be able to hire the cars from as little as £5.00 an hour including VAT and be driving in a matter of seconds by using the easy-to-use Enterprise Car Club app. With Lochgelly and Cardenden in more rural areas with less access to public transport, the electric vehicles will help residents be as environmentally friendly as possible on journeys that are only possible by car.
The vehicles will be available for use by Ore Valley tenants, as well as anyone who lives or works in the surrounding area. A further six vehicles will be introduced in Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes as the charging infrastructure is developed. Membership to the Enterprise Car Club gives users access to a growing network of 300 vehicles across Enterprise Car Club locations in 12 Scottish towns, cities and communities, as well as the wider network of 1,400 electric, hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicles across 170 towns and communities in the UK.
You can rent the Enterprise Car Club cars by the hour or day. The cars are available 24/7, 365 days a year. Fuel, taxes, servicing and MOT are included so you only ever pay for the vehicle when you use it, not when you don’t.
The vehicles are parked in dedicated bays at our head office in Cardenden and our business centre in Lochgelly, meaning there is always a parking space for you when you return the vehicle.
We have arranged for tenants of Ore Valley Housing Association to receive one year’s free membership of the Enterprise Car Club, and the first 50 members to sign up will also receive £50 driving credit.
