Advances in technology and increased availability have made electric cars a viable way of cutting your travel costs. Recent improvement of electric car batteries have resulted in the production of less expensive vehicles that stay charged for longer - some for up to 300 miles. Additionally, charging points are becoming more available as well as incentives for fitting home charging points, adding to the electric car’s appeal.
One of the restrictions of electric cars in the past has been the lack of choice available, it’s exciting therefore to hear big news from several large car brands regarding their electric cars. BMW announced the extension of their electric car portfolio with an all electric version of their crossover X3 and an electric Mini. Also, Volkswagen announced huge plans of a restructure in order to shift towards electric vehicles involving the investment of £3.5 billion.
If there wasn’t motivation enough to consider electric cars, government proposals to create clean air zones in 5 UK cities by 2020, one of which is Southampton, could see benefits such as priority at traffic lights given to electric cars in order to encourage buyers to choose cleaner vehicles.
