5 reasons to choose a green vehicle in 2017

With the cost of fuel rising, more businesses are looking to use hybrid vehicles and plug-in vehicles, potentially saving thousands of pounds a year. Car manufacturers have heavily invested in electric and hybrid vehicles over recent years, improving their quality and range. Here is five reasons why you should consider a green vehicle in 2017:

  1. The cost of petrol and diesel has risen to an all-time high and expectations are that petrol prices are set to rise to 125p per litre by the end of February due to a weaker sterling and higher demand on oil. An electric or plug-in vehicle could save you £750 on average in fuel bills.
  2. Road Tax: with Vehicle Excise Duty being calculated on CO2 emissions from the first of April 2017 – electric vehicles and zero emission vehicles has never been more appealing.
  3. Garage bills: servicing and maintenance is on average £94 for a pure electric car in comparison to £400 for a diesel or petrol car.
  4. Local perks: councils across the UK are aiming to create better air quality and there are a variety of incentives in place to push businesses toward electric vehicles including not paying a congestion charge in London or free parking. Check with your local council and see what’s available in your area.
  5. Better for the environment: a recent survey highlighted that the UK’s air pollution levels are high and above the recommended level. This will inevitably endanger children and those with lung diseases. Driving a zero-emission car will help the environment and improve the air quality in your community.
