Why go electric?

Lower cost

EVs offer an excellent investment for drivers looking for a cheaper, more efficient and reliable way to get around. Like traditional petrol and diesel vehicles, the cost of buying an electric car varies depending on make, model, features and type.

There is an EV to suit every type of budget and our car selector tool is designed to help you find your perfect car quickly and easily.

Cheaper to maintain

While the price of an EV may be similar to most comparable petrol or diesel cars, the cost of running one is significantly cheaper.

Fully electric cars are designed to be as efficient as possible and there are generally 3 main components powering the vehicle; the on-board charger, inverter and motor. This means there is far less wear and tear on the car and little stress on the motor, with fewer moving parts susceptible to damage. This means you’ll rarely have to have your EV serviced and the running and repair costs are minimal.

Better for the environment

Fully electric cars have zero tailpipe emissions making them greener, cleaner and better for the environment than any petrol or diesel car currently on the road. When driven in electric mode, plug-in hybrids emit zero tailpipe emissions.

In order to drive in the most environmentally friendly way possible, make sure to keep your plug-in hybrid charged up so that you can carry out the majority of driving in electric mode.
