Join an electric car club

Car sharing is a great way to reduce the number of cars on our streets. Electric cars have a much smaller carbon footprint than combustion engines.

Why?

If you own an electric car, an electric vehicle owners club can be a very useful way of meeting like-minded individuals who can offer support and advice about your vehicle. You will also get the chance to expand your network, make new acquaintances and maybe learn a skill or two about how to look after your vehicle!

How?

Electric vehicle owners clubs usually have dedicated websites and Facebook and Twitter accounts, through which they can be contacted if you are interested in joining. There are clubs within various counties and regions across the UK.

The below website lists clubs that exist within different counties of the UK, including Scotland:

There is also a national electric vehicle owners club, which has a Facebook page that is open to the public: facebook.com/groups/ukelectricvehicleowners

There are also online forums for electric vehicle owners, where you can post questions that you may have about your electric vehicle:

Furthermore, some models of electric car have their own dedicated clubs, such as the Renault Zoe and MG. It is advised that you enter the model of your electric car into Google to see if there is an electric car club that is dedicated to your specific vehicle.
