If you’re reading this, you’ve probably got some interest in the electric vehicle revolution. I’ve been banging the drum for a while now about said revolution, because it’s coming. Fast.
So far, the people purchasing electric cars have been your family guys, with the kids and a driveway. But the electric vehicle is smashing through the glass ceiling of its stereotype, and is step by step becoming an integral part of our society. You can find electric vehicle chargers pretty much everywhere these days, and there are now even plans to convert the thousands of street lights up and down the country into EV charge-points.
The government revealed plans in the recent budget to invest approximately £400million into the infrastructure of electric vehicle chargers, a bold move. Nevertheless, a move which emphasises their commitment to meet the target of having all electric vehicles on our roads by 2040.
So what are the perks of an electric vehicle exactly, in a nutshell?
Cheaper To Operate
The cost to run an electric car is approximately one quarter the cost of petrol (on a cost per mile basis). The average cost to charge an electric car is approximately £3.64. So you can clearly see a huge gulf compared to the higher cost of running a petrol car.
No Tailpipe Emissions
The rather obvious one. Electric vehicles reduce the amount of damaging emissions to pretty much zero. The fact electric vehicles do not have a tailpipe ensures that our air quality is increased significantly.
Charge At Home
Never again will we hear the dreaded “Ah forgot to get petrol”. Upon pulling into your drive at the end of a long working day, you’d simply need to plug in and leave your vehicle to charge. If you’re out on the road, you can make use of the 8133 public charge-points that operate up and down the country.
These are just a couple of the simpler, rather obvious advantages of having an electric car. But it really is quite straightforward. Purchasing an electric car can save you money, provide you with convenience, and help contribute towards a greener, cleaner environment.
So, if you’re on the lookout for a new vehicle, why not join the revolution and go electric. The benefits are clear to see. We hope that we’ve managed to charge your enthusiasm.
Pardon the pun.
