Seven reasons to start driving electric

Academic research commonly agrees that an EV is always better for the environment than diesel or petrol, even when you include the battery production.

All leading manufacturers are offering fully electric cars; Tesla, Volkswagen, Mercedes, BMW, Kia, Audi, Renault, Nissan and still many more to come.
Electric vehicles are in many cases already cheaper than diesels when comparing the entire lifecycle of the vehicle thanks to lower maintenance, lower electricity and taxations.
