Discover the benefits of going electric

The transition to an electric vehicle benefits both you and the planet. All around the globe, EVs are becoming the most sought-after vehicles. They provide environmental benefits throughout their life cycle and offer many advantages for those driving them. If you're thinking about switching to an electric car, here are just a few reasons why you should make the switch.

  1. Sustainability

    Electric cars help improve air quality due to the lower CO2 emissions when compared to petrol or diesel cars. Many countries are already working on stricter emissions regulations to achieve the EU's climate neutrality target by 2050. Switching to an electric car now means you are ahead of the curve. Even if only non-renewable sources of electricity are used to charge an electric car, during the entire battery life cycle the electric car nonetheless remains more sustainable than a similar car with an internal combustion engine.

  2. State-of-the-art technology

    The latest generation of electric cars have an effective range of up to 500 km on a single charge. Given that electricity is currently the cheapest fuel, charging an EV costs less than filling up on a tank of petrol or diesel. Moreover, electric engines require less maintenance, another advantage that electric cars have over conventional ones. The motor’s power is greater than that of a similar car with an internal combustion engine, with the motor being super responsive, ensuring a really enjoyable driving experience.

  3. Ever-increasing numbers of electric cars

    Electric cars are becoming more affordable thanks to the rapidly developing innovations of companies such as Tesla and well-established manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Nissan. Charging infrastructure and technology are also developing and improving, with the charging network in Europe having grown exponentially in recent years. With the drop in cost, the influx of new models and the disappearance of anxiety about vehicle range thanks to the construction of ever more new charging points, it has never been easier or more attractive to drive an electric car.

  4. Upcoming changes in the legislation

    To accelerate the electric driving revolution, new legislation on electric vehicles has been enacted. In June 2022, the European Union enacted legislation that requires that all new cars and trucks sold in the European Union should be zero emission vehicles by 2035. Manufacturers will no longer be permitted to sell new cars or LCVs with internal combustion engines. The EU seeks to have at least 30 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030. More and more cities are implementing low emission zones as they strive to improve air quality for urban residents. More than 200 cities now have some version of a policy on low emission zones and that number is only going up.

  5. Convenience

    Those who drive electric cars are particularly satisfied drivers who say that electric cars are "more fun, more exciting and easier to drive". Electric cars make almost no noise, which is very pleasant for driver and passengers alike. In addition, you don't need to change gears since every electric car comes with an automatic gearbox.

  6. Range

    The range of electric cars is constantly on the rise while at the same time more and more charging stations are being added to the national network, both in cities and on motorways. That means most electric car models at present can meet your daily travel needs around town without any problem.

Zero emissions

The great advantage of driving an EV is that it gets you to your destination with zero emissions. While on the road, the battery powers the electric motor and supplies all electrical systems in the vehicle without generating any waste.

That’s great news for electric vehicle drivers. Why? Because you can still access low emission zones. In many cases, cars with internal combustion engines are kept far from city centers due to the harmful air pollution they cause. More than 200 cities such as London, Amsterdam, Stuttgart and Stockholm have already established low emission zones.

The most polluting cars with internal combustion engines are also prohibited in Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent. But with electric cars, you can still access low emission zones.
