And what are the main advantages of an electric vehicle?

✅ Lower running cost: A full charge in a pure electric vehicle will give a typical range of 100 miles and will cost £2 to £4. Driving 100 miles in a petrol or diesel car will cost around £13 to £16 in fuel, which is around four times the cost of the electric car. The cost savings will be greatest when owners have access to an off-peak overnight electricity tariff.
✅ Lower maintenance cost: There are fewer mechanical components in an electric vehicle when compared with conventional vehicles, which often results in lower servicing and maintenance costs.
✅ UK Government Grants are available for purchase: applied directly at dealerships, a discount of 35% (up to a maximum of £3,500) of the price of a new EV is currently available. For electric vans, it’s 20% (up to a maximum of £8,000). For more info, visit the UK Government Website
✅ Ultra-low emissions: EVs could realise a 40% reduction in CO2 compared to the average family- sized petrol car over a full life cycle (SMMT Electric Car Guide, 2011). As more electricity is generated from renewable sources, these savings will increase further.
