How you can rent out your electric vehicle - or try one out

Many of our Pure Planet members have already made the switch from petrol or diesel to cleaner hybrids and electric vehicles.

But if it ends up sitting unused in your driveway for days on end, there is a way you can make some money back - by renting it out.

We’ve teamed up with a new peer-to-peer car sharing service called Hiyacar. Using an app (so no car keys to lose…) to search, book and drive.




The range includes petrol cars but the company says the number of EVs is growing fast. To find out more, including how to get £20 off your first drive, read our interview with Hiya on our blog.

Alternatively, it’s also a way of hiring an EV to try one out.

Truth be told there is no way I’d let a stranger drive my golf GTE. It’s the only new car I have ever owned, so it’s a no from me

Hi @Timco I know what you mean.
But wouldn't you like to try out an EV?
I’ve had the golf hybrid for 6 months or so now and I’ll go full electric next time, the driving experience is so much better than ICE

Hmmm nice. I'm just going through some budgeting but I think I'll be looking at getting my first ever hybrid or EV in the next couple of months.
And that, to be honest, as about as far as I've got. I'm going to have to do lots of research!
I think I'll post about it here in the community, and maybe you guys can help me make a decision!! (Tesla's are out, btw 😂)

It's a rare day when we don't spend part of it on a beach walking our dog.
