Car Bute has 3 cars, two Ford Fusion diesels, and a Renualt Scenic which is also diesel and can carry up to 7 passangers. The 1.4TDci diesel engines in the fusions are very economical without being sluggish. The Fusion’s 5-door boxy shape makes it very spacious and it drives like a larger car whilst having the handling of a small car. The high driving position is very comfortable and the square shape makes parking very simple.
The cars can also be run on Bio Diesel. We have a supply of this fuel on Bute and will top the car up between hires. Customers needing to refuel should just fill up with standard diesel at the pumps
The two island based cars are located in Castle St outside the Towards Zero Carbon Bute offices, and the car based at Wemyss Bay is located through the secure gate area of the main pier.
One Ford Fusion and the Renualt Scenic are based on the island and the other Fusion is based at Wemyss Bay.
