Answered By:

I am pleased to see more car clubs investing in electric vehicles. This enables Londoners who give up car ownership to still make essential car journeys in the cleanest vehicles possible.

Although not on the Taskforce itself, car clubs are already being considered as part of my Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Taskforce workshops. Car club operators have been invited to contribute to those workshops and inform discussions so will be represented through these. In addition, Transport for London maintains a regular dialogue with car club operators to understand the issues they face and their potential contribution to the delivery of my Transport Strategy.

A proportion of London's Go Ultra Low City Scheme funding is also being used to provide charging infrastructure for car clubs.
