Westminster City Council has partnered with Zipcar to give members access to shared cars parked across the city. Each Westminster Car Club vehicle aims to remove 15-20 privately-owned vehicles from the road, meaning less emissions and less parked cars. Member benefits include free fuel, free insurance and no congestion charge. There is an extensive range to choose from including the new Vauxhall Ampera. As most trips taken by Zipcar members are under 35 miles they could be completely free from tail-pipe emissions.
The new Vauxhall Ampera is an extended range electric vehicle (EREV) that is already in use by several police forces around the world. Free of the usual restrictions of batteries, it offers lively electric performance and a range of up to 360 miles. Winner of over 40 awards including the 2012 European Car of the Year and a challenge by the Association of Chief Police Officers to incorporate a range of future technology into an advanced hybrid car.
