News, reports and road tests of Electric Cars from Green Car Guide. We review the latest EV models of 2013 now available in the UK, talk with the manufacturers about their future electric car plans, analyse the costs and savings associated with electric vehicles and also provide overviews of the technologies involved.
We also cover the issues involved with electric vehicle charging, such as government initiatives and legislation, the sort of grants available for Plug-in cars and vans, and industry partnerships between manufacturers and energy suppliers like that between British Gas and Vauxhall.
A study by GfK Automotive has suggested that electric cars could account for one-in-twenty of all cars sold in the UK by 2014 - if manufacturers and authorities can solve problems like the limited availability of charging points or 'range anxiety', where consumers fret over over the distances electric cars can travel. Green Car Guide will be at the forefront of reporting on all the developments in the EV sector as the market grows and matures. Our reporters have unparalleled access to the major (and minor) manufacturers ensuring we have the inside-line on the latest technology, the latest legislation and above all, the latest makes and models - because we get to test drive the cars first!
