Local businesses are being encouraged to go green, with the option to lease an electric vehicle.

Local businesses are being encouraged to go green, with the option to lease an electric vehicle.

Business owners gave electric vehicles a test drive as part of a bid to reduce harmful emissions in Sheffield.

They gave the cars a whirl at Bramall Lane, Highfield, as part of a county-wide project led by Sheffield Council. Grants towards leasing a plug-in van or car are available. Coun Jack Scott, council cabinet member for environment, said the cars could travel 100 miles for £2, with charging points now being installed across the county.

Coun Scott said: “I think this is the future.”
