Electric vehicle car hire launches in County Durham

by | Apr 19, 2022 | Community, News

Residents in County Durham can now hire an electric vehicle for the day, as part of a new car club service.

Car club scheme
The car club has three fully electric cars available to borrow, which residents can hire for an hour up to a full day.

It costs £5 a month to join the scheme and the hire rate is £4 per hour for the first three hours, then £3 for every hour after that, or £30 to hire the car for a day. There is no geographical limit as to who can join the scheme.

Volunteer drivers from the club are also available to use the car to take people to hospital appointments.
