14 reasons why electric cars are better than petrol and diesel cars - they're fast

Not convinced an electric car is for you? Here are the 14 reasons why an electric could be your only car

And they’re fast

Cars like the Tesla Model S offer acceleration that’ll shame many supercars. In fact, the P100D version can go from 0-62mph in just 2.7 seconds – that’s superbike levels of performance.

But you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a scent of that performance. From 0-30mph, a Volkswagen e-Golf can out-accelerate the Golf GTI hot hatchback, and even cars like the Nissan Leaf and Renault ZOE can shock passengers with the instant shove from their electric motors. Banish any comparisons with milk floats right now.

Despite the fun, they’re easy on the wallet, too, especially in London. Find out more on the next page.
