  • Context, issues : The municipality of Villerouge-Termenès is a small rural town with a population of 140 inhabitants. An electric charging station that can accommodate two vehicles has been installed on the parking of the cooperative cellar and is powered by a photovoltaic shade, operation carried out by the municipality. The geographical distance of small retail outlets and supermarkets as well as specialized care centers, the coexistence of a young population with modest resources and an aging population experiencing difficulties in driving ledthe Municipality to think about solutions to solve this problem. 
  • Goals : - Make available to residents of the village a means of locomotion non-polluting at a socially affordable cost for short trips within a radius of 40 to 80 km around the starting point (supply of foodstuffs, access to DIY stores , shops, markets, friendly visits, specialized care, hospital exams ...)
    - Encourage car pooling and strengthen the social link
    - Have a clean vehicle that can be used by municipal services for short trips.

    In addition to the priority objectives defined above, and in order to exploit the available time slots during the tourist season, the vehicle may be proposed to visitors to discover two other nearby Pays Cathare sites : Termes and Lagrasse (50 km loop).
    Many other remarkable sites with which a partnership could be built around a clean and silent mobility are in the perimeter of the Mixed Union of Préfiguration of the Regional Natural Park Corbières Fenouillèdes. Located within a radius of 25 to 60 km around Villerouge Termenès (castles of Aguilar, Arques, Quéribus, Peyrepertuse, Puilaurens, Fontfroide Abbey, Galamus gorges ...), their distance is widely compatible with the autonomy provided by the battery of the electric vehicle.
    Links with territorial rural lodgings, local producers (wine, cheese, honey, mushrooms, fish farming ...) and craftsmen (potters, painters, sculptors, wood turners ...) could be associated with these courses at through proposals of preprogrammed trips on the vehicle's GPS and / or tablets, smartphones and other connected equipment.
