Safer To Drive
Being the cars of the future means electric and hybrid cars are built with increased safety measures in mind. Improvements such as having the battery in the floor of the car makes the car more balanced and less likely to roll over, and their construction makes them safer during an accident.
Home charging point initiatives
The UK government offers grants up to 75% for the cost and installation of a domestic charge point. Typical range is from 80-100 km from a full charge which is more than double the typical commute.
Some electric cars are partnered with apps to give the driver real time updates on their car. The BMW i3 for example shows range, location and battery charge from your device meaning you are always in the know about the status of your car and whether you need to charge up or not.
Efficient Fuel Economy

Strictly speaking you don’t need a dedicated charging point installed in your home as charging stations are becoming more and more common all over the UK. However in the long run it will be more convenient for you to get a dedicated charging point installed as you will then be able to charge your vehicle at your own leisure at no extra cost (unlike at a supermarket where you would have to pay). You having the dedicated charging point can also mean that your car charges quicker as they are often more powerful than those found in supermarkets or shopping centres.
You will often find charging stations for your electric vehicle across many public car parks, supermarkets, shopping centres and service stations throughout the UK. These allow you to plug in your electric car to charge whilst you’re shopping so it is ready for you to drive away on your return.
Current predictions suggest EV batteries will typically last from 10-20 years before they will need replacing.
