All You Need to Know About Owning an Electric Vehicle

Whilst electric vehicles account for a small percentage of the total cars on UK roads, sales of electric cars are rising fast. With over 395,000 pure-electric cars and more than 740,000 plug-in models on UK roads at the end of December 2021, compared to just 3,500 in 2013, the demand for environmentally friendly motoring is growing and fast!

With sales rising as quickly as they are in parallel to the continued development of the UK’s charge point infrastructure, now is a great time to consider going green. With nearly 30,000 public charge points and more affordable home charge points, it is becoming easier to own an electric vehicle than ever.
