There have been lots of articles in recent months discussing the pros and cons of electric vehicles. It seems there is little doubt they will soon start to challenge the dominance of the internal combustion engine, but if you find yourself unsure about whether you know enough about this new technology to be able to make a judgement as to whether you should 'go electric' when you buy your next car then fear not as a new site has recently launched aimed at answering all the questions you may have.
New electric vehicle registration data shows that public appetite for plug-in vehicles continued to accelerate in the third quarter of 2017. A total of 12,932 plug-in models were registered between July and September, a rise of 36% on the same period in 2016, which is 721 units higher than the previous record quarter, January-March 2017.
To help even more UK motorists save money and cut their emissions, Go Ultra Low has launched a new website, advertising, and social media campaign that aims to make it even easier for UK motorists to understand the benefits of electric vehicles.
"It is great to see that the popularity of plug-in cars continues to grow at a record pace," says Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra Low. "Our campaign includes a host of real-world plug-in vehicle owner case studies and eight informative videos to demonstrate how plug-in vehicles could completely fit into motorists' lives."
Transport Minister, Jesse Norman said: "We are committed to investing £1bn in ultra-low emission vehicles, including £100 million in the UK's charging infrastructure by 2021. The launch of the new Go Ultra Low website demonstrates how ultra-low emission vehicles can fit into even more people's lives."
It is all part of the Government's ambition under their Clean Growth Strategy, that every new car and van is zero emission by 2040.
