Electric cars are having a bit of a moment right now. With petrol prices rising and plenty of sizeable alternative subsidies in place, there’s never been a better time to take the greener route.
Meanwhile, as London unveils its Ultra-Low Emission Zone (more commonly known as the ‘ULEZ’), and the government gears up to ban the sale of new cars and vans running on petrol or diesel by 2040, electric vehicles will really start to come to prominence.
One thing is clear: electric cars absolutely do save you money in the long-run. In particular, there's an up-front saving of up to £3,500 in government grants and significant per-mile fuel savings in comparison with petrol and diesel, while we will soon also see electric tariffs which allow you to sell excess battery charge back to the National Grid.
