Electric cars are more and more in demand nowadays, but which are the best electric cars available to buy now in the car market ?
The number of electric car sales on roads continues to rise, as new electric cars are launched and used prices start to drop. The selection of new electric cars for consumers will continue as more manufacturers embrace the technology for increased emissions regulations and upcoming bans on gasoline and diesel cars.
At the same time, the electric car charging infrastructure is improving, making electric cars more viable for more people. The greater availability of fast chargers in homes and workplaces, as well as in public spaces, means it’s easier to switch to a BEV (battery electric vehicle) and take advantage of its lower running costs with relatively little inconvenience. Even if you can’t get by with a pure EV, today’s plug-in hybrids give you a good halfway house.
Although some customers might still be hesitant about making the switch to electric power, one key advantage is that nowadays there is a greater selection than ever before.
There are other benefits to pure electric driving besides the environmental credentials. Electric cars are still more expensive to buy than their combustion-engined counterparts, even with the government subsidy for plug-in cars, but running costs have been shown to be up to 60% lower for electric cars.
