To award a contract to CoWheels for the provision of a car club in Cheshire East to both replace the current pool car provision and be available to the general public.



Cheshire East Council is commissioning an EV Car Club to be used by the council to replace the current pool car facility and encourage the uptake of a car club to the wider public. The decision to direct award on the contract through the CCS framework has been taken after the issue of a PIN notice and consultation with procurement. The initial 4 vehicles will be a mix of three EV plus either a Hybrid EV/ICE or low emissions vehicles, targeted at becoming fully EV as infrastructure allows. As the success of the scheme is understood more vehicles may be provisioned for public use under a separate procurement. The total estimated contract value over 3 years is up to £65,000.
