The transition to low- and zero-emission driving has begun, but many consumers still need to be better informed about what is right for them.
The government is encouraging us to switch to cleaner cars. New company car tax rules are encouraging more drivers to switch to plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicles. Widely publicised government proposals to ban the sale of all but battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2035 or sooner are further driving the push towards cleaner motoring.
The number of low-, ultra-low- and zero-emission vehicles on the UK’s roads is still very small, but the tide is turning. In 2019, registrations of BEVs were up 144% year on year. In the first two months of 2020, sales were up 217% over the same period year on year, while registrations of PHEVs rose by 88%, regular hybrids by 33.5% and those of mild hybrids by 268%.
Despite this shift, more can be done to encourage the trickle of cleaner cars to become a flood. At Ecomore we can help consumers choose the right powertrain and give them the knowledge and understanding to maximise their car's efficiency and range.
In the meantime there remains in excess of 32 million petrol- and diesel-engined cars on the UK’s roads. Our sustainable driving philosophy applies equally to those. Ecomore can help drivers achieve better fuel economy figures, which will save money, cut pollution and reduce CO2 emissions.
