Electric Car Sales Rocket In The UK

The electric car and plug-in hybrid car sales in the UK have rocketed over the last year where consumers are starting to see the many benefits of owning the new generation of car.

Sales figures have seen a whopping 94% increase like for like growth with the Nissan Leaf and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV taking the top 2 spots. These official figures are from The Society Of Motor Manufacturers And Traders (SMMT).

This is great news for all the car manufacturers that are or have been investing into this generation of car. With the likes of Tesla really pushing at the forefront of the electric car market with battery ranges of 300 miles per charge and autonomous driving. Also BMW with the new modern looking design and highly environmentally friendly built cars like the i3 and i8, there shows that this great electric car era is only really now starting to make a dent into the old technology type cars that haven't really moved on since the 1900’s.

The Great British public are now seeing electric cars for what they are, a easy every day work horse, highly technological, safe, cheap to maintain and best of all they are very good on the pocket even when the oil prices are dropping and at a all time low.

Our advice is if you haven't already, get yourself a test drive down your local electric or hybrid car dealer and make that switch, you'll be glad that you did.
