    Abstract

    In March 2003 Stelios Haji-Ioannou publicised his
    plans for establishing as many as 30 Easycar Clubs in
    the UK within the next year. This paper shows how
    Stelios arrived at the concept of operating Car Clubs
    through purely cost cutting motives. The paper
    includes an overview of the operational details of the
    proposed car clubs and compares them with more
    conventional community car clubs. The potential
    environmental impacts of the Easycar Club are then
    considered.
