The benefits of all-electric cars

Want to help save the planet while cutting your vehicle’s running costs? EVs are the way forward. Here’s what you can enjoy when you choose to go electric:

Zero CO2 emissions

Leave other drivers green with envy in your new, emission-reducing EV.

No petrol costs

Running an EV is cheaper and cleaner than using traditional fuels.

A smooth driving experience

With fewer moving parts and reduced engine noise, expect a calmer commute in your new EV.

Low to zero road tax

EVs are clean, green machines – meaning cheaper running costs for you.

Government grants and incentives

With the government keen to meet agreed emissions targets, financial assistance is available to help you make the switch.

No more range anxiety

Some EV cars deliver over 250 miles fully charged, which is sure to soothe any range anxiety you might have.

Electric car charging points

Driveway or parking space outside your home? You can charge your car’s battery overnight using a traditional plug socket. There are also 12,000 electric car charging stations in the UK, with new charging points popping up daily.

You access electric car charging points using a network tariff card. The type of charging point you can use is down to which connector your car has.
