Why Go Electric? If you're thinking about making a change on your driveway for the first time in about 10 years, you now have more options than you would've had last time you were car shopping.

The Benefits of Buying Electric

Electric and hybrid vehicles are becoming ever more popular; indeed, the use of petrol and diesel engines is due to be phased out by 2040. And with savings to be made on running costs, road tax and more, there’s lots to gain by choosing a cleaner car. Not to mention the reduced impact on the environment, which will have advantages far into the future.

Performance & Pleasure

Our E-Tense vehicles are not simply a way to get from A to B. They deliver a whole new driving experience that’s sure to leave you smiling.

Drive In Town Whenever You Want

Drive electric and enjoy exemption from tariffs and restrictions imposed on fuel cars. A blue LED located at the top of your vehicle’s windscreen shows you’re using electric power, and is your pass to certain roads and areas.

Tax Benefits

Buying an electric or hybrid car means reduced vehicle tax – a major incentive for many drivers, especially with rates for fuel cars increasing each year.

Simple & Efficient

Electric and hybrid cars are more efficient thanks to clever technology that allows the battery to be recharged with regenerative braking. Some components wear more slowly too, and electricity is cheaper than fuel – meaning you’ll save in several ways.

Electric Vehicle FAQ

Electric cars are greener than internal combustion engine vehicles by a number of key measures, with the exception of the carbon intensity of the manufacturing process. Here are some of our frequently asked questions or feel free to contact one of our Electric Specialists.
