Why Are Electric Vehicles Better?

Electric vehicles (EVs) are more commonplace than ever. This is because technology has evolved to the point where an EV can compete, in performance terms, with a petrol or diesel car. More importantly, an EV is much cheaper to run – and since it’s carbon-neutral, it’s the most environmentally friendly option.

Lower Running Costs

Electric Vehicles are by far the most affordable vehicles to run. This is mainly because, as things currently stand, electricity is cheaper than petrol or diesel.

In descending order, PHEVs (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles), FHEVs (Full Hybrid Electric Vehicles) and mHEVs (Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles), though not as cost-effective to run as EVs, are more fuel-efficient than their petrol/diesel equivalents.

For example, an electric charge for the Ford Mustang Mach-E costs approximately £2.34 per 30-mile journey, as opposed to topping up the fuel-driven Mustang with petrol, which costs about £11.
