Electric Cars to Get Rural Trial in England
Ten rural businesses in Warwickshire have begun 12-month trials of electric vehicles, aimed at assessing the performance and economy of the technology outside an urban setting.
Led by Warwickshire County Council and managed by Greenwatt Technology, the Warwickshire Rural Electric Vehicles (WREV) project will study the usage of eight Nissan LEAFs and a BMW i3 by a group of companies spanning sectors including farming, vehicle maintenance, residential care, local deliveries and business services.
Participants, chosen from a group of 20 who undertook initial feasibility studies, each get a grant towards two-year contract hire costs on an electric vehicle through the Defra-funded Warwickshire Rural Growth Network.
