Enterprise Car Club launches for businesses and drivers in Newbury
Enterprise Car Club has opened for business in Newbury, bringing a range of electric and hybrid vehicles to the town.
Launched in partnership with West Berkshire Council, the service is available to residents, visitors and businesses, and operates from five locations in Newbury.
Vehicles are available on a per hour basis and costs are said to be low.
Members can also access the growing Enterprise Car Club network of more than 1,400 on-street low-emission, hybrid and electric vehicles at locations in 180 cities, towns and communities across the UK.
Dan Gursel, managing director of Enterprise Car Club, said: “We are delighted to work with West Berkshire Council to launch this service which will help reduce congestion and improve air quality by enabling people to make more sustainable travel choices.
“We are expanding Enterprise Car Club across the UK to reach communities large and small, so that people can quickly and easily pick up low emission and value for money cars when that is the best choice for their journey.”
The new service will help cut congestion and emissions in the town, while also helping drivers cut costs.
Cllr Steve Ardagh-Walter, executive member for the environment at West Berkshire Council, explained: “New electric vehicles will give residents and businesses a financially attractive alternative to car ownership and will help in reducing our carbon footprint.
“This improvement to the car club forms part of our Environment Strategy Delivery Plan to encourage more use of electric vehicles and inspire alternative travel options across the district.”
