Why ARE PEOPLE BUYING electric vehicles?
REDUCED RUNNING COSTS -
Electric vehicles use no petrol or diesel, allowing you to fuel your vehicle from the comfort of your own home. Whilst costing significantly less to power than a petrol or diesel car would to fill up the tank.
FEWER EMISSIONS (AND LOWER ROAD TAX) -
The number of electric vehicles on the road, relates to a reduction of greenhouse gases. Therefore, as an incentive, lower emissions also mean lower road tax (and exemption from ULEZ zone charges). Also, there are now government tax incentives to encourage people to buy more environmentally friendly cars.
INSTANT TORQUE -
Electric motors deliver their maximum torque output instantaneously, almost like a switch. This leads to an increased level of performance.
