We all know that petrol-heads love a good, roaring, classic car with a huge engine and a decent paint job.

Unfortunately, these cars run on petrol and we all know the impact burning fossil fuels can have on the environment. We don’t want to preach a certain way of life, however, we do know that promoting a conscious thought toward environmental impact can make just as much of a difference. 

Electric cars are an excellent alternative, and arguably a lot more fun, reliable and safe. There has been a recent boost in the EV industry, with everything from mopeds to trucks available in electric form. 

The main question is; is now the right time? Is it worth it? Are they good? The short answer is… Yes!

There is nothing telling us that an electric car needs to be a compromise or a lesser form of transportation. With their neo-futuristic vibes and their sleek design, an electric car is a modern, fast and sexy choice for your everyday driver (and perhaps your weekend sports car)!

There are plans in the works for diesel and petrol cars to become relics of the past. Times are changing and the electric car will soon be a staple of the modern world. By 2030, the government will ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars, and by 2035, the sale of new hybrid cars. Now is the perfect time to enter the EV industry, taking advantage of the government grants and funds that are available to help bring the prospect of a shiny new EV into reality.

Are there any cons to an electric car? This is a common question. In the past, electric cars held the reputation of being unreliable, low-ranged and ugly. This is not the case today. Technological innovation has helped electric cars soar past typical fossil-fueled vehicles to the point where they are pretty much equal, if not, superior. 

There is a huge market with an insane variety of vehicles. From family saloons to sporty coupes, choice is inevitable! If you are thinking of making the transition, there are a few things you need to know. In terms of the information available to you, manufacturers have this in spades! The amount of car journalism channels on television and the internet endorse EV’s more and more every day! 

According to Wired.co.uk (https://www.wired.co.uk/article/electric-cars-uk-buying-guide) “In the first eight months of 2021, fully-electric vehicles accounted for 8.4 percent of new sales in the UK, a gain of 106.7 percent on the same period of 2020.”

This will only increase in the coming years. 

If you are wary about going fully electric, there are of course other alternatives. A hybrid vehicle offers the quick convenience of refueling, as well as the environmental benefit of electric cars. There is nothing more satisfying than silently moving off in an electric, forgetting that the ‘engine’ doesn’t make any noise!

If you are thinking of buying a new car, it is probably best to go fully electric. Maintenance and charge points are only going to become cheaper and more common in everyday life. It is best to jump on the bandwagon early! Take advantage of those government grants while you can!
