14 reasons why electric cars are better than petrol and diesel cars - they're green!
And you can do your bit for the environment
Critics might cite coal and gas power stations as reasons electric cars aren’t as green as they seem, but the simple fact is the UK has a bright future in renewable energy. In the second three months of 2018, 28.1% of the country’s energy came from wind and solar power – up from 5.9% in the same period in 2010.
With a further 22.5% of power coming from nuclear, more than half of the UK’s power needs come from clean energy. By 2030, 75% of Britain’s electricity will be green.
Plus, without an exhaust pipe, electric car owners can do their bit to reduce harmful local air pollution!
