Welcome to Eco Cars



Eco Cars JPorterfieldMy name is Jonathan Porterfield and together with my wife Ursula, we have been running eco cars from our home in Orkney. In April 2021 we joined up with ReFLEX Orkney and our buy-to-order business is now offered along side their electric vehicle leasing. Ecocars is now a trading name of ReFLEX Orkney Ltd. I have trained up their customer team to sell cars with me. After working at various car dealerships over the years, I have built up a good relationship with many local and nationwide dealers who often contact me, as main dealers still look at electric vehicles and scratch their heads, not knowing what they have in front of them!

Working from ReFLEX's Hatston office means we keep our costs low by not having a huge showroom.


A Passion for Electric Cars since the 2010s



In 2011 we stopped working with LPG cars to focus exclusively on electric cars. We have been following the evolution of electric cars since the 2000s, so we know what to look for, what works and what doesn’t.

Infact the majority of our own cars are electric and thus we know first hand the joys that come from economical green motoring.


The Friendly Service We Are Known For



We are renowned for our friendly service, it’s why our customers use us again and again. But don’t take our word for if, here are just a few of the things our customers have said about us…

I bought my 2011 Nissan Leaf from Eco Cars about three months ago. The car was exactly as described in the brilliant YouTube video, so the long drive from Milton Keynes to the other side of Leicester for a viewing was not a wasted trip. In short, I was very wary about buying such a complicated and innovative vehicle from the second-hand market and, had the team from Eco Cars not been so wonderfully communicative and reassuring, I would still be doing my daily commute in a noisy polluting inefficient old diesel. I can highly recommend them.
-James Butson

I am completely delighted with the advice, both before and after sales, that Jonathan provides. He gives a very personal service, and is very nice to deal with. I bought from him a Citroën C-Zero in spotless condition at a good price, which he delivered right to my door. I am usually cautious about being too much in the vanguard, but in this case, I am still thrilled to have an all-electric car as it comes up to its first service, and find I look for excuses to drive it. I love its lack of pollution, silent operation and economy. So, full marks to Jonathan and Eco-cars! om economical green motoring.

what people are saying

16/07/21 Eco-cars - good experience, and they fixed the problems caused by the auction house. Good service. Excellent - Jonathan & team sourced a car at a good price, and even more importantly, continued to support when problems arose (the car had a cracked windscreen which wasn't advertised by the auction house). All problems were sorted, and it was a pleasure to deal with Eco-cars
