Vehicles (BEV) are becoming more common on our roads, but there are still many
questions that come up no matter how much research you have carried out before
starting your electric vehicle journey. Here at Donnelly Group, we will explain
everything you need to know about owning a battery-electric vehicle right here
to ensure you find the electric vehicle that’s right for you.
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) are fully electric with rechargeable batteries and no petrol engine. These cars rely solely on the electricity stored within the battery pack of the vehicle to run the motor to drive, and power all the electronics onboard such as your headlights, DAB radio, and satellite navigation.
Electric vehicles offer many benefits over their petrol and diesel counterparts, such as lower running costs, easy and convenient to drive, government grants available to help get you on the road, less maintenance and of course, they’re better for the environment!
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing an electric car is what you’re going to be using it for. If you need it for driving around the towns and cities of Northern Ireland, you might have a small electric car in your sights, or maybe you’re looking for both an environmentally and family-friendly model that needs to be suitable for your expanding household. Whatever electric car you’re going for, you need it to fit well with your lifestyle – consider a few of the following things:
While there are a lot of benefits to focus on, such as being environmentally friendly and low maintenance, electric cars are a lot of fun to drive. They are highly responsive, and with less noise and fewer vibrations, they’re smooth and effortless to drive!
