Why should I buy an Electric Vehicle adminxeroe
As a driver or fleet owner, you’ve probably heard a lot about electric vehicles in recent years. Many point to them as being the key to reducing transportation emissions, which will improve air quality in London and combat climate change. Yet many drivers haven’t made the switch. Perhaps you think that electric vans (E-Vans) are a passing fad. Or, maybe you don’t understand the damage that traditional vehicles cause to the environment.
At Xeroe, we’re great believers in eco-friendly transportation. That’s why we only provide E-Vans to our customers. We also want you to join us in providing emissions-free transportation in London and beyond.
But first, we need to convince you to make the switch. Here are the reasons why switching to E-Vans will benefit you.
The Petrol and Diesel Ban
The United Kingdom has ambitious targets in mind for its emissions reductions. To reach them, the government will take extensive action.
That starts with the recent announcement that the sale of petrol and diesel cars will be banned from 2040 onwards. Eventually, the country will phase such vehicles out entirely for emission-free alternatives.
E-Vans are one of those alternatives. If you make the switch now, you don’t have to worry about the ban affecting you later on down the line.
There Are More Charging Points Than Ever
Finding charging points was always a problem in the past. Even if you believed in E-Vans, you may not have wanted to make the switch because it’s just easier to run petrol and diesel vans.
But that’s not the case anymore. London now hosts over 1,400 charging points. That list will grow constantly in the future too. Just check out this map to see how easy it is to find charging points in London today. On top of that, advancing rapid charging technology will eliminate long waits. Plus, batteries last longer and will improve as the technology sees wider adoption. There are now fewer barriers to widespread electric vehicle use than ever before.
London will march towards reducing emissions, whether you’re ready to or not. In fact, London has already introduced a £10 Toxicity Charge that gets added to the congestion charge for vehicles of a certain age. If you have an older van or fleet, these charges can really add up.
That’s not to mention the introduction of Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZs). From April 2019, your fleet will need to meet certain emissions targets to avoid incurring a charge when driving in these zones.
Making the switch to E-Vans means you avoid these charges. Individuals could save hundreds of pounds per year, with large companies saving thousands.
More Makes and Models
We’re not the only ones who think E-Vans are the way of the future. Most of the world’s major vehicle manufacturers feel the same way. That’s why so many now make E-Vans.
Don’t believe us? Here’s a list of the E-Vans that you can currently buy in the UK. Expect more manufacturers to join these ranks in the coming years.
The Plug-In Grant
The government isn’t just hitting people with charges for driving high-emission vehicles. It’s also helping them to make the switch to low and zero-emission vehicles.
E-Vans are no longer a new and expensive technology. They’re becoming the norm. If you don’t make the switch as soon as possible, your competitors will leave you behind. Plus, you may face charges from the government if you stick with your old van or fleet.
If you make the switch today, you benefit from all of the above. Better yet, you can join the Xeroe platform to help us clean up our cities. Sign up today for your free pre launch registration to our platform.
