Keith's iPad 020



2013 was a busy year for the EV world. Sales and choice both increased significantly.

Nissan was definitely the EV market leader. It achieved over half of all EV sales in the UK between 2010 and 2013. It’s gaining strength in the US too, outselling Tesla last month and just 500 units away from the top sales figure for the year.

So what can we expect in 2014? Even More Choice.

Yes, Nissan has the strongest market position. But – last year saw the launch of several EV models from major manufacturers: BMW, Ford, VW, Porsche and more. With mainstream advertising working to promote these EVs, (adverts appearing on television for BMW, Nissan and radio adverts for Toyota), they’ll become a more familiar option.

Nearly all the major car manufacturers have an EV option in their range. Models launching this year include:

  • - Kia Soul
  • - VW Golf e-Motion
  • - Tesla Model S (with the longest official range of any EV: 310 miles)

Plus, look out for these exciting hybrids:

  • - BMW i8
  • - VW XL1
  • - Audi A3 Sportback e-tron

EVs are cheap to run… hugely economical with no road tax, lots of free parking and no congestion charge to pay. (The typical electricity cost to charge EVs is approximately £0.0310 per mile, compared to fuel costs of £0.1611 to run their petrol counterparts.)

Remember – there are huge financial incentives to consider when thinking about driving green. EValu8 can help with grants that contribute towards the cost of the vehicles and charging points. Ask us for details:
