Back to Smart Streets – new ways of getting around

REPLICATE’s delivery partner, Co-wheels, has introduced 11 electric vehicles (EVs) and 24 electric charge point bays  in Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill. These new additions offer citizens, and those visiting Bristol, the opportunity to travel around the city and beyond in a clean and efficient way.

Monitoring of the electric vehicles

To gather data on how pollution and energy consumption can be reduced by using electric vehicles (EVs), various monitoring systems are integrated in the 11 EVs during the research project.

The EVs are fitted with on-board telematics such as a Global Positioning System (GPS) and navigation system to help understand vehicle usage. We are working on a system that will monitor the EVs state of charge in real time. This will enable a much more efficient booking system, as users will be able to make sure they hire an EV that has sufficient charge for their travel needs.

Opportunities to get involved

The 11 electric vehicles (EVs) are now available in Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill, so anyone can sign up to Co-wheels and use them.

You may also want to try one of Co-wheels’ hybrid vehicles or EVs located in other areas of the city. Take a look at Co-wheels’ map of vehicle locations to find out more.
