Prince Charles plugs his eco-village vision with electric car scheme (Eco news)

Prince Charles plugs his eco-village vision with electric car scheme
Scotland on Sunday reported

Developers Ian and Anne Hope are working with the prince's Foundation for the Built Environment and ZeroC, the eco-home company based in Poundbury, Dorset, on the development.

With the site's visitor centre now open for sales and construction on the first homes under way, Ian Hope described how electric cars could be the vehicle of choice for residents. "There's still a need for individual drive cars, but we thought that the electric car would be really beneficial here," he said.

"We initially thought about a car club for the electric cars. But we thought that might be revised, with residents to have an electric car and pool car to be standard diesel or hybrid."

The prince has shown a keen interest in low-emission vehicles, and last year hosted an eco-car showcase on The Mall in London as part of a fair promoting sustainable living.
