One of the biggest talking points in the automotive industry, Electric Vehicles (EVs), is also the hot topic for garage owners, road users and automotive enthusiasts alike. And it seems, in line with the government’s projected plans, the take up of EVs is heading in the right direction.
According to research by Ofgem, one in four (24%) households in the UK are planning on purchasing an EV in the next five years.
That equates to over 6.5million households across the UK. It seems with all the talk about the benefits of EVs to the environment, to users and to society, many households are thinking of making the switch in the near future.
A lack of consumer confidence…
Despite the change in thinking by some, there are still questions to be answered to increase consumer confidence…
- Short Battery Life
- Lack of Charging Stations
Regardless of the government’s projected plans for EVs, they are not yet meeting the standards that consumers expect. The development of these vehicles is still in its infancy; with plans to upgrade the battery life, increase the fast-charging infrastructure and educate/equip garages with the means to supply EV servicing and maintenance.
