How Electric Cars Work Will Blow Your Mind - Free road tax

Electric cars are simple, but very effective. We explain how they work

Electric cars don’t produce any local emissions, which improves air quality in busy cities and means owners of electric vehicles generally don’t pay road tax or congestion charges. In some areas, electric cars are eligible for free parking – and they're even allowed to use bus lanes in Milton Keynes.

Tax benefits may change in the years to come, but it is more likely that internal combustion cars will be more harshly taxed as time goes on. Even if road tax for electric cars does go up in the future, it's likely to remain very reasonable for the foreseeable.

It's not all about saving money though. As you'll see on the next page, electric cars are fun!
