The vast majority of Britons (86%) have changed their behaviour during the past five years to lessen their impact on the environment, new research has found.
And more than half (54%) of motorists now believe it is becoming ‘cooler’ to drive an electric or low-emission car than a diesel or petrol vehicle. It’s even influencing where consumers choose to spend their money – 49% said they would be attracted to delivery firms that operate a low-emission fleet, compared to 35% who said they’d be attracted to a food company using organic ingredients.
What’s more, awareness is increasing among motorists of the savings to be made from switching to an electric vehicle, such as cheaper fuel and road tax (acknowledged by 42%), lower maintenance costs (24%) and access to emissions-restricted areas (25%).
