Bristol’s free electric vehicle loan scheme

By Ramona Andrews

Bristol City Council is offering organisations in Bristol the chance to try an electric vehicle for free through the free EV loan scheme.

The scheme is open to sole traders, SMEs, charities, and voluntary sector organisations and is designed to help you decide if an electric vehicle is the right choice for your organisation.

Leases will last for four weeks and include free insurance cover.

You can choose from different types of electric vehicles depending on your business needs. The available fleet includes:

• 6 x Maxus ‘E-deliver 3’ medium vans (max cargo space advertised as 2,180mm (l) x 1,665mm (w) x 1,330 (h))
• 4 x Maxus ‘E-Deliver 9’ large vans (max. cargo space advertised as 3,413mm (l) x 1,800mm (w) x 1,792mm (h))
• 5 x Renault Zoe cars (suitable for mobile hairdressers, care workers or florists)
• 15 x Toyota Proace City vans (short wheelbase/L1 – max cargo space up to 3.7m3 on short version)

Find out more about the scheme and apply on the TravelWest website.
