The Watford E-Car Club offers residents a convenient and alternative way to travel around the town. The fleet includes three electric Renault ZOE 40KwH hatchbacks parked in the Watford Town Hall car park, which can be booked for an hour or several days at a time. The award-winning cars have an average range of 150 - 180 miles per charge. Which covers the majority of day-to-day journeys.
You can booked online (or via the free E-Car Club mobile app) and as they’re completely electric, there are no additional fuel costs to worry about. Insurance is even included in this price and the minimum membership age is 19-years-old. The cost is just £6.50 per hour, or £60 for 24 hours. For more information, visit ecarclub.co.uk/join
Following a successful bid to the Government's Officer for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), and as part of our mission to make Watford carbon neutral by 2030, we are introducing new electric vehicle charging points around the borough. The new installations by our partner and electric vehicle infrastructure experts Electric Blue are being focused in areas where there is little or no off-street parking. You can find out more here.
As part of the government’s plans to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, drivers will be encouraged to make the switch to electric vehicles through the introduction of green number plates. The plates will make it easier for cars to be identified as zero-emission vehicles, helping local authorities design and put in place new policies to incentivise people to own and drive them.
Herts 2025 is an initiative led by Electric Blue aimed at delivering significant air quality improvements in Hertfordshire towns by increasing the uptake of zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs) within the taxi industry.
