Electric vehicles are better for the environment, cheaper to run and cheaper to maintain.
Pure electric vehicles have zero exhaust emissions, which means they do not emit any harmful exhaust emissions in the local environment.
Although the upfront cost of purchasing an electric vehicle is higher, savings are made in the longer term with lower running costs. Electric vehicles have lower servicing and maintenance costs due to having fewer mechanical components as well as being more cost effective to charge than petrol cars.
