With the soaring price of fuel and the effect that petrol and diesel cars have on the environment, EV charging is becoming more and more enticing as time goes by.
Electric vehicles offer several important advantages in a society where fossil fuels are no longer a realistic or sustainable resource. If you’re thinking of buying one, we’ve put together this brief overview outlining the benefits of electric vehicles to help you decide.
The Benefits Of Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles offer a sustainable approach to the environment and your bank account. With the initial investment of EVs lowering every year, it’s starting to become a viable alternative to fuel-powered vehicles.
It’s no secret that petroleum-based fuels contribute massively to the decline of our environment and our planet. Not just in cars, but the transport industry in general is slowly damaging our ecosystem.
Electric vehicles are starting to offer salvation in terms of environmentally friendly transport. Not only does electricity release zero emissions, but EV charging even has the potential to be powered by sustainable and renewable energy sources, such as wind or solar.
A fantastic addition to EVs is not just the eco-friendly aspect, but the affect it has on your monthly bills. According to the Energy Saving Trust, EV vehicles will cost between £8 – £12 to travel 200 miles. Compared to approximately £30 for a petrol vehicle, that’s a saving of over 50%.
You could be saving anywhere from 50-75% of your weekly commuting costs by investing in an EV vehicle.
