Electric cars are coming – although it’s fair to say that they’re not for everyone quite yet. The UK plans to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030, but ahead of that deadline there remains legitimate concern among buyers about how an electric car might suit their lifestyle.
Chief among these apprehensions are “range anxiety” (how far an electric car can travel before the battery needs recharging) and the state of the UK’s public charging infrastructure, while there’s also a big question mark over how long the batteries will last.
In which case you might be forgiven for thinking that, for various reasons, electric cars (EVs) won’t catch on, but that the 2030 ban on petrol and diesel means they have to be taken seriously.
It won’t be an easy transition, but there are plenty of positives. Electric cars are easy and relaxing to drive, pleasingly swift off the mark and generally emissions-free in use. They are also generally much cheaper to run than petrol or diesel models, especially if you are able to charge them at your home using as yet untaxed electricity.
There’s a lot of misinformation concerning electric cars, much of it spewed by organisations which should really know better. Or at least do some proper research before sounding off.
