Fear of running out of battery? A typical UK driver could get around a week’s driving in an electric car without the need to plug in.

One of the most common reasons for not getting an electric car is the fear of it running out of battery. Long distances can be easily covered now by electric cars. Some newer electric cars are capable of more than 300 miles on a single charge up. Even those that allow for shorter distances can still cover around the region of 150 miles, meaning it would only need a mid-week top up, depending on the mileage you are intending on doing.

Pure electric cars rather than their hybrid counterparts are now being increasingly promoted in the UK. The UK is the third-largest electric car market in Europe. However, the large majority of plug-in car sales in the UK have been plug-in hybrids. The UK is now aiming to phase out the idea of hybrids.

Furthermore, there is now a great range of electric cars available on the market. Everyone from Nissan to Jaguar is now making electric cars. With the Nissan Leaf, Hyundai Kona electric and Renault Zoe, topping the list of affordable electric cars.

It is also good to note that the UK government offers money off zero-emissions cars via its plug-in car grant.
