Don't go to the petrol station. Go where the smart money is. Charging a battery from empty to full costs less than a tankful of fuel.
All-electric vehicles produce no tailpipe emissions, so the CO2 output of your daily commute is precisely zero.
The driving range of electric vehicles is extending all the time, with the ŠKODA VISION iV expected to achieve over 300 miles between charges. And there are now more than 9,000 charging locations across the UK, with hundreds more added every week.
Electric vehicles have far fewer moving parts than petrol or diesel cars, making them easier to service. The entire drivetrain has just three components - the converter, motor and battery.
When you put your foot on the accelerator of a petrol or diesel car, there is a 'lag' before the car actually accelerates. With an electric vehicle, acceleration is instantaneous, for a more responsive and fun driving experience.
