Why an electric vehicle is worth the switch

Posted November 29, 2023



Why an electric vehicle is worth the switch

More and more people are making the switch to an electric vehicle (EV). In fact, one in 32 cars now comes with a plug and sales of EVs now account for over 50% of UK car sales. This is fantastic news for our planet as lifetime emissions of an EV are 70% less than petrol and diesel vehicles.

Here are some other compelling reasons to make the switch:


  • 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
