Our Community Car is aimed at reducing the need for car ownership here at the Marina & offering our clients a convenient & low-cost alternative that is also Greener for the Environment.
Car Club vehicles currently include a 2014 BMWi3 Hatchback and a 2017 Nissan eNV200 Van. Both are 100% electric with Fast-Chargers fitted here on-site at Pilling’s Lock Marina to ensure they are ready to go. They can even be pre-heated in the frosty weather!
We are very proud to be the first Marina in Leicestershire to install Electric Vehicle Fast-Charge units. We currently have Two Type-2 7.2kw Charger Units which can be used (by any EV Owner) on a pay-as-you-go card system and they do not require a monthly subscription or contract. Top up can be purchased from our Marina Office.
Use of the vehicles starts from just £5.00 for your first hour and that includes a fully charged vehicle* capable of taking you up to 80 miles**.
Our current client base have found this a realistic alternative to owning a vehicle or 2nd vehicle so just imagine how much money that could save you? Our current vehicle fleet, combined with our on-site Solar Panels, has already saved thousands of kgs of CO2 emissions too!
