In 2020, sales of electric vehicles (EVs) grew by a massive 186% in the UK, with over 100,000 being sold. Of course, the lack of CO2 emissions is a compelling reason for many to make the switch, but there’s more to these vehicles than the ecological angle – many are great cars in their own right.
In December 2020, the UK government announced a ban on the sales of petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030, in favour of electric vehicles which don’t emit carbon into the atmosphere. This is a welcome move for planet earth and mankind as a whole.
2020 saw an influx of new electric cars to the market, now being produced by the majority of mainstream manufacturers, including VW, Vauxhall and Honda, to name a few! With the Governments pledge to ban all petrol and diesel vehicle sales by 2035, many are starting to look ahead at what is on the market and learn all about electric car charging. One of the largest sources of climate pollution in the world is from transport emissions.
As the sales of electric cars and electric bikes continue to increase, electric car charger home installation is becoming more popular than ever before.
