A big fall in the number of plug-in hybrid cars within Scotland’s car club fleet is reported by shared mobility charity CoMoUK in its annual survey of Scotland.
The survey records 488 car club cars in Scotland. The proportion that were plug-in hybrid fell from 26 per cent in 2018/19 to just two per cent in 2019/20. The proportion of petrol hybrids rose from eight per cent to 31 per cent. Battery electric cars went up from 14 to 15 per cent.
“Feedback from operators suggests the shift from plug-in to petrol hybrids in the fleet is a result of issues with EV charging, either infrastructure problems, or members not charging correctly, which impacts customer experience,” says CoMoUK.
Membership has risen from 19,872 in 2018/19 to 25,193, broken down by 14,117 individual members and 11,076 through corporate schemes.
The two main operators in Scotland are Enterprise Car Club and Co-wheels. The report also covers data from three community car clubs.
