ReFLEX Orkney aims to significantly increase electric vehicle use in Orkney because they are more affordable and greener to drive and repair.

To support this effort we are working with DriveElectric to make it easier and more affordable for Orcadians to get electric cars and vans.

Since we launched in December 2020 ReFLEX Orkney has helped more than 200 people get an electric vehicle through leasing new and second-hand sales. Our experienced team can help find the right electric vehicle for you.
