Electric Vehicles

Pure electric vehicles have zero exhaust emissions, which means they do not emit any harmful exhaust emissions in the local environment.  For more information about electric vehicles please visit Energy Saving Trust

Energy Saving Trust presents ways to EV drivers to reduce the cost of recharging their vehicles. Among the info provided, there is a table with cost comparisons for different ways of charging and how this is compared to the cost of filling up a petrol or diesel car.

Although the upfront cost of purchasing an electric vehicle is higher, savings are made in the longer term with lower running costs.  Electric vehicles have lower servicing and maintenance costs due to having fewer mechanical components.  Home chargers continue to be the cheapest method.  To find out the costs for electric charging please visit RAC Charge Watch
