The Healthy Choice

In an urban environment you’re exposed to airborne pollutants that could be seriously damaging your health.

Is an electric car the right choice for me ?

If you drive less than 100 miles a day and have off-street parking, the answer is yes.

Electric cars offer a number of benefits

High fuel economy, low operating cost

Electric cars are highly efficient, and they generally have much lower operating costs than those of conventional vehicles.

Flexible fuelling

Electric cars offer fuelling options not typically available to conventional vehicles, including charging at home, work, public charging stations, or a combination of these sites.

High performance

Today’s electric cars are state-of-the-art vehicles ready to match or surpass the performance of their conventional counterparts.

Low emissions

Compared with conventional vehicles, electric cars typically produce lower levels of air pollutants and greenhouse gases, even when taking into account the emissions associated with electricity production.

Leasing, instead of purchasing outright, offers a more affordable option so you can drive the car you really want.

REAL LIFE STORIES

It's fun to drive electric! Hear about some real-life experiences from people who love driving their electric cars...

Doing our bit for the planet

The accumulation of key greenhouse gases (most importantly CO2 and methane) in the atmosphere due to human activities is contributing to climate change. Unless action is taken to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, the whole pattern of the world’s weather could change, increasing the frequency and intensity of heatwaves, floods, droughts and storms.

The Climate Change Act (2008) requires the UK Government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 from 1990 levels in the UK.

In 2013, domestic and international transport accounted for 26% of all UK greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the most significant greenhouse gas savings are likely to come from improving the fuel efficiency of conventional vehicles and increased use of sustainable biofuels.
