How to use this toolkit

We are working with South West Wiltshire Area Board and Mere Town Council to understand if there is sufficient interest in introducing a shared electric car club in Mere.

Cars could be booked from as little as half an hour from a convenient location, providing affordable access to zero emission vehicles for all.

Local residents, businesses and community organisations are being asked for their views on this via a short online survey: https://bit.ly/ElectricMere. The survey is running until 25th February 2022. The survey and mailing list are being operated by Co Cars. Data collected is held in accordance with our privacy policy.

This document provides you with pre-written content that you can use to tell your audiences about the survey. We are asking for your help in reaching people who will benefit from this survey because they live or work in Mere.

Option 1 (Suitable for LinkedIn, Facebook & Instagram)

Would you like to see a community-led electric car club in Mere?

The club would have electric cars available from a convenient location in Mere. Cars could be booked from as little as half an hour for an all-inclusive price of £5.50/hour or £40/day that covers insurance, tax, maintenance and roadside assist1. There would be a small mileage charge of 4p per mile.
The cars would each come with a dedicated charge point, with the cost of charging included in the hire2. Public charging would also be available, helping locals make the switch to electric cars whilst giving people travelling on the A303 a reason to stop and spend time in our town.

Electric car share is a great way to save the time, money and hassle spent on maintaining a private car, particularly a little used second car. It would help supplement our limited public transport options, benefit those who cannot afford to run their own cars and help to reduce our carbon footprint as each shared car club car removes, on average, 9 private cars from the road.

Interested? Then please complete this short survey https://bit.ly/ElectricMere.

Have you ever needed to use a car for just a few hours or day? Maybe you have a second car that isn’t used much but costs a bomb to get through the MOT every year? In fact, simply owning a car costs around £3,000 per year in terms of running costs and depreciation – and all for something that doesn’t even move 95% of the time.

That’s why Co Cars are talking about bringing shared, electric cars to Mere. Co Cars is a not-for-profit cooperative social enterprise that already successfully runs a network of shared, low and zero-emission cars across the South West. The company also runs the Co Bikes electric bike sharing scheme.

As a Co Cars member, you can book any car in their network from as little as half an hour for an all-inclusive price. Their Band 4 small electric cars cost £5.50/hour or £40/day which includes insurance, tax, maintenance and roadside assist1. There would be a small mileage charge of 4p per mile.

The cars would each come with a dedicated charge point, with the cost of charging included in the hire2. Public charging would also be available, helping locals make the switch to electric cars whilst giving people travelling on the A303 a reason to stop and spend time in our town.
