Lower cost

EVs offer outstanding value over the longer term and can be 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.

2

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.

100% 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.

3

Better for the environment

Pure electric cars have zero emissions making them greener, cleaner and better for the environment that 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.

4

Fast, easy home charging

Charging your car is just as easy as charging your mobile phone. Using a 7kW home charging port, most EVs can charge to full capacity in around 5-7 hours so your car will be ready to go when you are. Rapid chargers can speed up the process even more, charging your car in about 30 minutes.

Try our home charging tool which shows exactly how long a wide range of EVs take to charge. You’ll also see a breakdown of electricity usage and cost so you know exactly how much you could save every time you charge your car.

5

A quieter driving experience

Driving a petrol or diesel vehicles can often be a noisy, jarring journey filled with vibrations through the interior of the car with conversations and music difficult to hear over the roar of an engine.

One of the first things drivers notice when switching to an electric car is the quietness of the vehicle which creates a far more comfortable, relaxing driving experience. Driving really should be enjoyable and the serenity of the EV experience helps plenty of drivers fall back in love with driving again.
