Electric Cars London

Electric car londonElectric cars are becoming increasingly popular in London. It is a much cleaner and greener alternative to driving petrol or diesel fuelled vehicles. London is a key market for electric cars because it needs to generate less C02 emissions, the cars are smaller and there is a congestion charge discount for registered vehicles in which over 2,400 were registered in spring 2012. Recently manufacturers have been investing in a higher quality of model to meet contemporary demand and ‘proper’ cars are being produced i.e. small hatch backs by leading manufacturers. In London alone, there are now over 800 publicly accessible charge points for cars to use when parked. 

If you are thinking about getting an electric car in London then you should consider these points:

- Need to have access to off street parking so that the battery can charge over night 

- Mileage needs to be less than 100 miles travel a day

- Regular commuting trips suit electric cars

- Electric cars generally come new, so it will cost. There isn’t a huge second hand market at present 

- 7 year battery life from new but after that the battery will only retain about 80% of original capacity

- Think about going through the plug in car grant

The Plug in car grant is a scheme to help people move towards buying ultra low emission cars. The government allow up to £5,000 to be paid through the scheme, offering a 25% grant towards the purchase of a new vehicle.
