Should I Get an Electric Vehicle (EV), Is it Worth It in The End?

From improved driving experience to saving money!

Many of us seem to dislike the EV route, but Electric vehicles can save you money and that is a fact. So, should you go that route or not, you can decide it for yourself after reading this interesting blog, we created for you. We have been around EV for over 7 years now, supplying and installing throughout entire UK for the last decade. We possess the knowledge and experience to help you choose, what is right for you.

No matter where you plug in across the country, electric vehicles are cheaper to fuel than their gasoline-powered counterparts. Electric vehicles can also save you on maintenance costs. Battery EVs have no gasoline engine, they do not need oil changes, spark plugs, or timing belts, and unlike gasoline motors, electric motors required no routine maintenance. All in all, it could save you a whooping 1100 a year, that is a holiday to your favourite destination, every single year!

Let’s not forget another important part of owning an Electric Car, here in UK. Electric vehicles cut your emissions, even when the electricity used to fuel an EV comes from the dirtiest coal-dominated grid in the U.S., EVs still produce less global warming pollution than their conventional counterparts. The average EV in the U.S. today produces the emissions equivalent of a gasoline car that gets 73 miles per gallon. The emissions performance of EVs is set to only improve as wind and solar power displace coal-fired electricity generation. Many EV owners are also choosing to pair their EV with rooftop solar panels and home energy storage units. When powered exclusively by renewable energy, an EV can operate nearly emissions free.

Electric vehicles are convenient and we will tell you how. Instead of searching for a gasoline station with the cheapest prices, you can charge at home at a cheaper and much more predictable cost. And plugging in at home takes only a few seconds and lets you wake up with a “full tank” every morning. ALKAG LTD have installed over 1400 EV charging points for private and commercial sectors, throughout the entire UK. EVs also have other convenient advantages. Battery electric vehicles are mechanically much simpler than a conventional gasoline car, so the maintenance requirements are often much simpler and, for this reason, cheaper to maintain. Drivers of electric cars a do not have to change their car’s motor oil every 5,000 to 10,000 miles, and they never have to schedule spark plug changes, timing belt replacements, or other engine tune up items. Depending on your location, EVs have additional benefits, like access to restricted express lanes on highways and bridges, special parking spots, and reduced or free tolls.
