MAKING THE MOVE TO ELECTRIC MOTORING

Making the switch to electric is a huge step to reducing emissions and the release of them into the atmosphere. This reduction in harmful emissions also has a positive effect on human health, particularly in busy, built up areas. Zero emissions also means you don’t have to pay the London congestion charge. Although emissions are much lower per mile than petrol or diesel engines, you could go one step further and switch to Ecotricity, Britain’s greenest energy company. This would mean your electricity will come completely from renewable and sustainable sources, rather than a fossil fuel power plant.

Recharging an electric vehicle costs much less than filling up with fuel. The cost of electricity at charging stations varies and some points are free, however charging at home can cost as little as 2p per mile. What’s more, the government offers grants to anyone making the switch, saving you thousands of pounds before you’ve even driven away.





FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ELECTRIC CAR & A PLUG-IN HYBRID?
Both models are equipped for charging but are fundamentally different. The plug-in hybrid combines an internal combustion engine with an electric motor whilst charging from an electrical outlet and recovers energy when driving. Electric cars are powered by electric motors only. Their batteries have a higher capacity which means that the range is up to ten times longer on electric power in contrast to PHEV.


DO THE BATTERIES TAKE UP A LOT OF SPACE?
Electric vehicles are spacious and the electric drive itself is much more space saving than a convention engine design. There is no need for a large transmission and an electric motor is considerably smaller than a combustion engine.

WHAT ARE MY CHARGING OPTIONS?

We’ve made charging your electric vehicle simple and accessible, allowing you to charge at home, on the go and even in a rush. To charge at home, all you need is a household socket or wall box that’s been professionally installed. There is a choice of three different power outlets and charging speeds available. All charging equipment is completely weather proof. When out and about you can simply charge it up during a short break at a charging station, in as little as 20 minutes. 

HOW MUCH IS IT TO INSTALL A CHARGER?

There is the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) gives you £500 towards the cost of installing selected higher-powered charging wallboxes at home. Also, your employer could also benefit from installing a charging station if they apply to the Workplace Charging Scheme, it gives them £500 off the cost of installation of electric charging points. 


HOW LONG DOES AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE TAKE TO CHARGE?
Charging times will depend on the size of the car and the charging source. Small cars with a range of between 100 to 200km can be fully charged overnight. Most 16-pins sockets mainly found in houses can charge for over 50km of driving per hour. Chargers found at hotels and recharge station (32A) can provude twice as much. The most powerful quick-charging stations ranging from 40 to 135 kW, can charge the battery fast enough to increase the range by hundreds of kilomenters per hour of charging.

CAN I CHARGE AN ELECTRIC CAR IN THE RAIN?

Yes, you can even charge your electric car in the rain. The car and the charger itself have several levels of protection for these cases.  

ARE ELECTRIC CARS DANGEROUS IN AN ACCIDENT?
Similar to conventional cars, electric cars go through a series of standard tests to ensure that they are safe. The batteries are not explosive in an accident and electric cars can operate without a cluth and without gearbox or engine oil, which is usually the causes of fires in crashes. The batteries are completely insulated from the rest of the cars, and in the event of an accident, the whole system is disconnected.

DOES THE WEATHER AFFECT HOW FAR I CAN DRIVE?
Similar to combustion engine cars, consumption in the winter slightly increases - electric cars will need to use more energy in the colder weather. What's more, because the electric cars are so efficient the engine generates virtually no residual heat, so the cabin heating if fully electric.
