The recent consultation carried out by Co Cars in Crediton produced positive results. Co Cars are now working in conjunction with Rapid Charging Exeter (RCE), which means bringing a fully electric Co Car to Crediton is now a possibility.

Below is the latest news on this from Co Cars. Please do fill in the RCE survey, to help them guage demand locally.

'You may have heard of Rapid Charging Exeter - we are rolling out on-street, rapid electric vehicle chargers across Exeter. Powered by renewables, the chargers can pump in 75 miles of charge in just 30 minutes.

Due to high levels of interest, we are now also looking for locations in East Devon, Mid Devon and Teignbridge, plus more in Exeter.

Rapid Charging Exeter hubs comprise of two chargers and two battery units, enabling up to 4 electric cars to charge at the same time. As electric cars become the norm on our streets, having a local rapid charging point will become an important neighbourhood amenity. This network will help our communities become greener with reduced emissions and cleaner air for all.

A partnership with Co Cars car club means that charger locations can also include a shared electric Co Car. These can be hired by the hour, day or week, making electric cars affordable for everyone.

We are keen to hear from communities that are interested in Rapid Charging locations near them. This short survey aims to capture their thoughts and interest. We would be grateful if you could circulate the survey among your contacts or members so that we can reach as many people as possible. The results will be shared with Devon County Council and other local authorities alongside the Rapid Charging Exeter team.'
