Around one in five car buyers would be better off buying a pure electric car than a petrol or diesel vehicle, a new study by What Car? has concluded.
The magazine’s motoring experts analysed data from more than 8,400 users of the What Fuel? Calculator. They looked at users’ daily mileage, driving habits and vehicle requirements, and found that 19% could use a fully electric vehicle as their daily mode of transport without compromising their routine.
It emerged that an electric car would meet the needs of even some drivers covering more than 15,000 miles a year or who live in rural areas better than any other vehicle type, not least because some EVs can now cover more than 200 miles on a single charge.
