We have all heard in the media that the UK government plans to ban petrol and diesel cars from our roads by 2040, which may seem a long while ago – but just like summer holidays to Christmas, it will fly round!
Could it be worth joining the ‘electric revolution’ sooner, rather than later?
Of course there are pros and cons to every decision and we have put together some pros and cons for you to consider;
Pros of an Electric Car
- Zero Emissions
This is one of the biggest benefits of driving an electric vehicle; while it is not ‘purely green’ because it needs charging, you are not adding to the harmful emissions in the environment.
- Low Running Costs
Looking on a daily basis, you will quickly see that costs of running an electric car are lower than costs for a petrol or diesel car.
- Tax Benefit
There are loads of tax benefits out there, and some grants available too – so make sure you research these, or speak to us and we can talk you through all the tax benefits and grants available to you.
- Comfort Accelerations
You will find the electric cars are more roomy as the electric motor takes up more space than an engine, and it is a quieter car too.
Cons of an Electric Car
- Charging Points
You need to think about where the nearest charging point is, because your standard house electricity will not be enough for your car, especially as the popularity of electric cars rise.
- Charging Time
You’ll need to be organised with an electric car, you can’t just stop at a petrol station, you’ll need to think about journeys and get into the routine of charging up your car overnight.
- Battery Range
While it is being improved with every new model, battery ranges are a huge concern for some people who are worried their car will not have enough charge to get them through longer journeys.
