Electric Vehicles Available to Buy in the UK
If you are thinking of buying a battery electric vehicle there are three issues that need to be carefully considered that will determine whether an EV is right for you: your access to charging points, your daily mileage and your overall budget. Read the EV Buying Guide see whether a BEV is suitable for you.
Given that plug-in hybrids and extended range EVs are less dependent on access to an electric supply and are not electric-range limited, access to charging points and your daily mileage are less important. However, if you are about to invest in one of these technologies, you are still advised to read our EV Buying Guide.
