Switching to an EV is a wise decision – Why should you buy an EV?

Buy an EV

The number of electric vehicles on UK roads is increasing rapidly, on account of their significant long term economic benefits. As more UK drivers are starting to consider the switch to electric, it’s beneficial to highlight the most economical way to get your hands on one. Most drivers are now opting to buy an EV instead of renting or leasing. Second hand electric vehicles are certainly becoming the way forward.


Plug-in electric vehicles (also known as electric cars, electric vans or EVs), are connected, fun and practical. However, they do carry a hefty price tag, with the cost of an EV starting from £15,000 for a basic make and model.

Hire an EV

Hiring an electric vehicle is a cost effective, realistic and viable option for most drivers. When hiring there is no long-term commitment, the mileage allowance is usually generous and maintenance is included. Luckily our sister company EVision Electric Vehicles has a huge fleet of EVs available to hire from their collection points in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire.

Undoubtedly, no matter your driving needs or habits switching to an EV is a wise decision to make, and the huge savings that can be made are applicable to all drivers. Such as if you commute into the centre of London, electric vehicles are 100% exempt from both the London Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), which can save you more than £20 a day. Additionally, no matter where you plug in across the country, EVs are cheaper to ‘fill-up’ than their fossil fuelled counterparts.  

If you are a business owner and are looking to operate more sustainably, then EVs are a great choice to consider. A fleet of electric vehicles is not only cheaper for both you and your employee, they also reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change and smog. Improving public health, reducing ecological damage and your company’s environmental footprint as a result.

As of April 6th 2021, the Benefit in Kind (BiK) company car tax for electric cars is set at just 1% for the 2021/2022 tax year. Whereas electric company vans are exempt from Benefit in Kind tax as part of new efforts for the UK to go green.  

Having an electric company vehicle for your employees or yourself will offer significant tax savings.
