Electric Cars

Discover the joy of driving an electric vehicle. With lower running costs, no oil changes and no petrol station stops, they’re a convenient and cost-effective option. Powered by a lithium-ion battery and electric motor, electric vehicles offer quiet, zero-emissions travel.

An electric car is just like any other car, except it uses a battery to drive a powerful electric motor. This makes them more economical and with no emissions, better for the environment. Instead of refuelling you simply recharge at home, or at one of the many public charge points.

How does an electric car work?

In simple terms, energy is stored in a large battery, which drives a powerful electric motor. To charge it, just plug it into a home charge point, or a public charger when you’re out and about, the car takes care of the rest.
