Electric Fleet First - Try before you buy scheme


Coventry City Council is gearing up for the start of the Electric Fleet First project. Thanks to funding from Highways England, this will enable us to provide electric vehicles for local organisations to trial. The two-year project will support efforts to reduce NO2 emissions on the local and strategic road network by encouraging businesses to switch to electric vans, pool cars and taxis.

For local organisations, SMEs and businesses that are interested in trialling electric cars and/or Vans this will be a ‘try before you buy’ scheme of a minimum 2-month period, with the only cost being insurance cover during the trial period. This exciting opportunity will give you a real-life insight into the automotive world of electric and its benefits. With our built-in telematics at the end of your trial we will provide you with a usage report so you can see just how switching to Electric Vehicles can benefit you, your business and Coventry.

For local organisations, SMEs and businesses of the taxi trade who are interested in trialling the electric Taxis this will be a 'try before you buy' scheme of a minimum 1-month period.

If you would like to find out more and be a part of this exciting opportunity, please register your interest.
