Why now is a great time to buy an Electric Vehicle – a guide to buying one

23 June 2022 BlogEV for Drivers

The UK’s EV market is booming - with improvements in range, lower prices, and a rapidly expanding charging network. Not only are electric vehicles cheaper to run, but they’re also eco-friendly, increasingly fun and responsive to drive, and can future-proof your transport for years to come. We look at why now is a good time to buy an EV, benefits, and what to look out for when buying one.

Across the UK, thousands of new drivers every week are discovering the many benefits of EVs over conventional petrol and diesel cars.

As car manufacturers race to bring a range of new plug-in models to the market – and with the UK government investing more than a billion pounds in expanding the charging network ahead of the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars – EV ownership is set to only surge higher.

And despite 2022’s tough car market – with challenges such as the ongoing semiconductor shortage and the harsh economic headwinds of rising inflation, energy and fuel costs – this March recorded the highest number of EV registrations ever in a single month.
