Seven reasons to start driving electric
Switching to electric is better for the environment. With no tailpipe emissions, electric vehicles can improve air quality and overall have lower CO2 emissions than petrol or diesel vehicles. Even if only grey power is used for charging during the life cycle of an EV, the electric car will in most cases (depending on the country) remain more sustainable than a comparable ICE car.
Cities are limiting the entry of combustion engines in their centres because of the damaging pollutants in fuel. Low emission zones are already in place in more than 200 cities including London, Amsterdam, Stuttgart and Stockholm. Also in Brussels, Antwerpen en Ghent the most polluting ICE cars are banned today. Electric vehicles ensure that you can still access low emission zones.
The range of electric vehicles is increasing and is sufficient for most daily usage of drivers without the need for extra charging on the way. Latest generation electric vehicles offer a realistic mileage above 200km up to 500km.
More electric vehicle makes and models are becoming available. Today there are already more than 30 models available on the market with more to come in 2021. Car manufacturers are investing more in electric vehicles and almost all popular makes are planning to have one or more electric models in their range.
The time when electric cars were not affordable is in the past! Contact us for the prices of electric vehicles to understand what electric driving means for your costs.
Drivers of electric vehicles are more satisfied. Driving an electric car is fun, easy and exciting thanks to ‘one pedal driving’. Drivers also enjoy the silent driving mode of electric cars and can also positively contribute to the environment. The biggest challenge is to get your employees in an electric vehicle. In most cases, the experience itself is convincing enough to choose EV.
Government initiatives are making electric driving more attractive with drivers paying less tax. After all, in Belgium, all tax rules are currently linked to CO emission, so electric cars by definition score a lot better in terms of tax deductibility (employer) and the benefit in kind (employee).
