5 Reasons to Switch to an Electric Van

With almost 33,000 electric vehicles registered in the UK in November 2021 alone, find out why there has never been a better time to switch to an electric van.

  • You can save money in the long run
  • It will reduce your carbon footprint
  • Electric vans are pleasant to drive
  • Electric vans require less servicing
  • Traditional vans are being phased out

Investing in an electric van can save you money over the total cost of ownership. Not only can you save on fuel expenses, but there are also government grants of up to £2,500 available towards your purchase.

In addition, electric vehicle owners are exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty, and financial assistance is available when installing an electric charging point at your home.

A recent study found that 78% of adults in Northern Ireland are concerned about the environment, and one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to switch to an electric vehicle.

Fully electric vans produce zero carbon emissions and hybrid vans significantly reduce your carbon output, which will result in a cleaner environment for future generations.

One of the most common reports among electric van drivers is that they are significantly more relaxing to drive compared to petrol or diesel vans.

Electric vehicles don’t require a gearbox, which means no heavy gear changes or loud revving. Driving an electric van is smooth and quiet, making for a more enjoyable morning commute!

An electric motor has fewer components than a traditional van, which means less servicing is required.

However, you should still be sure to get regular health checks on your electric van to give you peace of mind that everything is in tip-top condition.

With the UK government’s target of banning the sale of non-electric vehicles by 2030 fast approaching, traditional vans will be phased out completely before long. Electric vans are the future!
