Ebike Grants & Loans Scotland

 
 
 

Home Energy Scotland is a Scottish Government programme managed by Energy Saving Trust. In 2018 Energy Saving Trust awarded VOLT™ the contract as Scotland's Nationwide supplier for their e-bike loan scheme. We couldn't be more excited to work with Energy Saving Trust helping to promote greener and healthier transport choices. The interest-free loan makes buying an e-bike for personal or business use very affordable at less than £1 a day.

Breaking Records

 
 

Even though this partnership has only just started, it has already helped to break a Guinness World Record. Chris Ramsey, from Plug In Adventures, used a VOLT™ Pulse on trial from Energy Saving Trust to break the record for the furthest distance travelled on an electric bike in 12 hours. He went on to shatter the previous 110.6 miles record by reaching an amazing 180.75 miles.
