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.
