Renault powers UK E-Car Club for sustainable electric vehicle transport system
Renault powers UK’s first 100% electric city car club, E-Car Club with a fleet of 5 electric Renaults, with more to be made available soon. Users can now drive Renault ZOE on a pay-per-use basis.
UK’s government is keen to make it the electric car capital of Europe. Renault leads the market in Europe, selling over 34,000 electric vehicles since Kangoo Van Z.E., hit showrooms in late 2011. Current market share is 47% this year. Those renting a ZOE from E-Car Club will use a Chameleon charger wherein charging can take as little as 30 minutes at a Rapid Charge station. E-Car Club sees investment from Sustainable Venture Partners and the Technology Strategy Board.
