More good news for EVs

More good news for EVs

By Robin Haycock, Head of Transport, The Climate Group. 

Enjoying the tropical weather today, I came across this Guardian story, Electric cars: kiss petrol stations goodbye. Now, I don't whether it was the sudden rush of Vitamin D, or that it was the real sense the Clean Revolution in the EV world is under-way, but the article certainly put me in a sunny mood.

It's great to see more of these types of articles showing the tide is turning, proving that EVs are becoming more desirable than ever and cheaper to run in the eyes of the press, and therefore, also the consumer.

Offering a finance package behind the car purchase option to make life simple for the consumer is definitely the way to go.

It's just like a mobile phone; we will stop thinking about the purchase price in the end and just think about product style, offering and convenience at a monthly price we can budget against.

I look forward to reading more articles like this. And I look forward to more lovely weather like this, fingers crossed.
