Scottish organisations receive funding to create electric vehicle car clubs

Seven organisations across Scotland have been successful in the second round of the Plugged-In Households Grant Fund (PiHH), Transport Scotland announced on 28 November. The PiHH is an opportunity for not-for-profit housing associations, housing cooperatives and constituted community groups in Scotland to apply for funding to procure the services of a zero-emission car club vehicle.

The successful applicants are Blackwood Group, Cube Housing, Grampian Housing, Connect Community Trust, WestWheels Car Club, Huntly & District Development Trust and Osprey Housing Association. These social housing providers and community organisations will share over £359,000 to procure the services of electric vehicle car clubs.

Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson said: “I’m pleased the Scottish Government has been able to support this second round of funding to expand affordable access to electric vehicles. I’m determined that the benefits of greener e-mobility extend beyond those who can afford the cost of a new vehicle, while at the same time promoting more sustainable shared vehicle schemes.”
