The market for electric vehicles is really taking off with thousands more people moving every month to EV for cheaper, cleaner travel.
There has never been a better time to move to electric. The lifetime cost of EV ownership is actually cheaper than the polluting petrol and diesel cars, with much lower maintenance costs and other benefits.
Petrol and diesel engines have thousands of moving parts but electric motors are simple, with most units having no more than 20 components so the servicing costs should be much lower than internal combustion (ICE) engine models.
Prospective EV owners be looking for the best ways to charge their vehicles at home and expert installation is essential. For trade professionals, there’s a growing range but which brand to choose is tricky.
