Because car clubs cars are new, they tend to be cleaner and more energy-efficient than the typical, older car on the road. In addition members tend to only use cars when they need to, favouring walking, cycling and public transport where possible. All of this helps bring local environmental benefits to a neighbourhood.
Lucy added, “Eventually we could have a few dozen car club vehicles spaced around the area, with lots of local people happily choosing to get rid of their own car, using a car club vehicle, and saving money on repairs, insurance, MOT, and car tax. Who knows, perhaps unreliability will also be a thing of the past.”
