Buying an electric car is a big change. Here are some of the reasons you might want to make it your next choice.
FILL UP FOR LESS
Don't go to the petrol station. Go where the smart money is. Charging a battery from empty to full costs far less than a tankful of fuel.
LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND
All-electric vehicles produce no tailpipe emissions, so the CO2 output of your daily commute is precisely zero.
GO WHERE YOU WANT
The driving range of electric vehicles is extending all the time, with the SKODA VISION iV expected to achieve over 300 miles between charges. And there are now more than 9,000 charging locations across the UK, with hundreds more added every week.
GET A SIMPLER SERVICE
Electric vehicles have far fewer moving parts than petrol or diesel cars, making them easier to service. The entire drive-train has just three components - the converter, motor and battery.
DON'T WASTE A SECOND
When you put your foot on the accelerator of a petrol or diesel car, there is a 'lag' before the car actually accelerates. With an electric vehicle, acceleration is instantaneous, for a more responsive and fun driving experience.
