What is a car club?

A car club is a short-term car rental service that allows individuals to access cars parked locally by the hour. This means that residents, local businesses and visitors of Luton can now book one of four electric cars for a little as £7 per hour.
The Luton fleet consists of four brand new, Nissan LEAF fully-electric vehicles. Two can be found on Midland Road outside Luton train station and a further two cars are located on Inkerman Street, in spaces provided by Luton Council.
This initiative forms part of our work to support improving air quality, parking  issues and congestion in the town centre. 

Why use an electric car club?

There are several benefits to using a car club, including:

  • ​convenience – designated parking spaces, no petrol refilling, no servicing, no MOT or insurance hassle
  • affordability – cars can be booked for as little as £7 per hour or £65 per day which means you only pay for what you use
  • environment friendly – our Air Quality Strategy aims to reduce increasing number of  harmful emissions in Luton and this scheme will contribute towards the improvement in air quality

How to sign up

Register via the e-car club website. For more information on the registration process you can call the e-Car team on 0203 603 2259. The ​promo code for new car club members - SUNNYLUTON (gives £50 off membership and £10 driving credit).

How to use the scheme

The vehicles include an RFID card access system, meaning the cars can be booked online (or via the e-Car Club mobile app) and used by several different people throughout the day.
e-Car Club’s latest Nissan LEAF hatchbacks have an average range of 175 to 200 miles per charge, which covers the vast majority of day to day journeys.
However, should e-Car Club members wish to travel further afield, information on charging locations and operators can be found on www.zap-map.com
