Benefits of EV Ownership
One of the biggest advantages of driving electric is the improvement it can make to the environment we live in.
Pure electric vehicles have no tailpipe, so they don’t emit any exhaust gases, which reduces local air pollution particularly in congested cities.
Electric cars are an attractive solution for councils challenged to clean up air quality to improve their residents’ health and quality of life.
Discounts on Congestion Charges
Some areas are introducing Clean Air Zones with fees designed to discourage polluting vehicles from entering certain areas. A key benefit of an electric car is being exempt from these charges.
For example, once registered, electric car drivers in London can travel in both the congestion zone and the new Ultra Low Emission Zone for free. If this is a journey that you make often, the cost savings can be enormous.
The Ultra Low Emission Zone for example costs £12.50 a day for cars. In a normal working year that could save a motorist as much as £2,875 on top of any fuel savings. As more and more cities consider introducing similar schemes, a switch to electric could be more advantageous right across the UK.
Lower Running Costs
One of the main advantages of electric cars is they're extremely cheap to run when compare to petrol or diesel.
On average, an electric car costs about 2p per mile to drive.
The average petrol equivalent is about 6 times that at 12p per mile.
Better still, some councils and workplaces offer free or low cost charging benefits. This means that there are even opportunities to get your fuel for free in some places.
Pure electric cars benefit from zero road tax and with fewer moving parts, electric cars need less maintenance and servicing is much simpler.
Improved Driving Experience
You'll instantly notice three advantages to driving an electric car over driving ICE vehicles (Internal Combustion Engine).
The first is instant torque from the electric motor which gives high and responsive acceleration.
The second is regenerative braking when easing off the accelerator, which feeds energy back into the battery adding to their efficiency.
Finally the weight and distribution of the batteries and low centre of gravity benefits handling, comfort and safety.
Right now, electric car drivers can benefit from government grants towards the cost of installing a charge point at home or at work.
Grants of up to £3,000 of the price of an electric car are available and you can also receive up to £350 towards the cost of installing a home charge point.
The government’s Workplace Charging Scheme also provides eligible business with support towards workplace charging points.
