Whether you are looking for a car that looks good, or one that is cheap to run. Or even looking for something that is fun and exciting you have come to the right place. Eco cars tend to be excellent first cars for new and young drivers for many reasons.
Reason One- electric, hybrid or hydrogen tend to be extremely fuel efficient and thus very cheap to run. If you are a new driver you won’t need to keep paying out for expensive fuel bills. This also helps the environment and prevents pollution.
Reason Two- some Eco cars are part of the government’s ultra-low emission vehicle scheme and thus can benefit from government incentives including £5000 towards the purchase price.
Reason Three- first cars need to be safe and reliable and look good. Eco-vehicles are ideal as most of them have the latest technology and ultra-modern designs including things such as smartphone apps.
Reason Four- some Eco cars are car tax category A and thus are completely free to tax each year, saving plenty of money for first time drivers. If you are on a budget you may also want to look at our tips of 10 ways to save money on your fuel bills.
Reason Five- eco-cars especially electric, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are part of the latest design concepts. There will be less money lost when you come to sell your first car as they are likely to have retained more of the purchase value.
