Electric vehicles are becoming very popular these days and more and more people are finding that they are more affordable than they first thought. Electric cars and vans have been around for a long time, decade’s in-fact. One of the major reasons why they are becoming much more ‘mainstream’ is due to running costs and initial purchase prices becoming lower, this is not necessarily the case of the EV equipment becoming cheaper but a case of the more conventional petrol/diesel fuels becoming more expensive.
There are plenty of great benefits of using an electric van one of the most important is the impact of the environment. Throughout the world we are seeing a huge push to try to preserve fossil fuels, by switching to lower emitting versions of our favourite and most trusted vehicles we can help immensely towards slowing down the inevitable depletion of natural fuels.
Not only can you help save and protect the environment by using an electric commercial van but it can also save you money. Whether you are using a van that runs on partially or fully electrically you can see savings in yearly fuel costs from the word go. Car tax is also cheaper meaning that you can spend your money on other things rather than more motoring costs. Some insurance companies are incorporating new policies for drivers of EV vehicles; their competitive pricing reflects just how safe and economical these types of van are. If you operate within the centre of London then owning an electric vehicle can save you more money by excluding you from the congestion charges that have recently been introduced. As a price guide this can currently cost some drivers £10 per day just to drive on some of London’s streets and roads.
If you have thought in the past that by welcoming this type of vehicle to your company you will have to give up some of the core features and strengths that your current vans and trucks give, then think again. Van manufacturers know very well that these vehicles are being bought not to look pretty but to incorporate everything that you would expect from a workhorse van but with the added bonuses that an EV brings.
Much like the van market the car industry is seeing an influx of private owners beginning to sample and purchase this new technology of vehicle. Not only will you find models from top motor manufacturers that infuse electric technology but also from medium to low priced makers.
So as you can see there are many benefits to switching from traditional vans to electric vehicles, why not visit your dealer that specialises in EV vehicles and take a test drive today.
