Posted August 30, 2023



Thinking of switching to an electric vehicle?

With greater choice and availability of electric models, the number of electric vehicles (EVs) in the UK is growing at a rapid rate. In fact, EVs now account for over 50% of UK car sales. If you’re considering making the switch to an EV or you are a fleet manager considering phasing out your company’s petrol and diesel vehicles, then here are five compelling reasons to do so.

5 reasons to switch to EV

  • Lifetime emissions of an EV are up to 70% less than petrol and diesel vehicles


  • Pure EVs that produce no tailpipe emissions are exempt from road tax


  • The average annual running cost of an EV, including refuelling/charging, insurance, Mot and servicing can be up to 49% lower than petrol or diesel vehicles


  • EV drivers can take advantage of no congestion charges in London and eligibility to drive through low emission zones for free


  • The sale of petrol and diesel vehicles will be banned in the UK in 2035
