Looking into the Promising Future of Electric Vehicles

By: Motorparks
SWINDON, U.K. - March 12, 2021 - PRLog -- Although it was expected, it didn't make the news any less shocking when Boris Johnson announced that the sale of petrol or diesel cars and vans would be prohibited in the UK from 2030. The Prime Minister has labelled his ten-point action plan, which includes investment in sustainable energy and bettered public transport, a 'green industrial revolution'. One area which will receive funding to the tune of £1.3bn is the electric vehicle market. The UK will witness the introduction of significantly more charging points, while buyers will receive additional support thanks to a grant being implemented to aid those making the switch.

While the announcement was met with criticism, it isn't all doom and gloom. In fact, the electric vehicle market has been a saving grace over the last few years.

What's been happening

When we look back to the early noughties and twenty-tens, electric vehicles had negative connotations. Poor mileage, expensive, and in most parts lacking in what Thierry Henry once described as "va va voom". The reputation was hardly unfair. If you went to buy an electric car, often these three attributes were true, and you were hardly spoilt for choice when it came to options either. The Prius changed the game admittedly, but even when it came to prominence, we were still left wanting more.

As the world began to demand a greener and cleaner world, the big brands began to jump in: Jaguar, Porsche, Renault, Audi, Hyundai, and Nissan, to name just a few. The latter of the bunch, Nissan, with their innovative model Nissan Leaf, developed exactly what the average car manufacturer desired – a plug-in vehicle that had a mileage range of more than 200 miles, was powerful, and, most importantly, was affordable.

Quality options from big brands

For many years, the appeal of the electric market was diminished by the sheer lack of options. There simply weren't enough alternatives. In 2021, however, there is an electric vehicle which appeases almost every need and driving style. Auto Express detailed some of their best electric vehicles available: the Kia e-Niro, the BMW i3, and the Jaguar I-Pace. The Kia stands out thanks to its impressive range and affordable price, the BMW due to its "tiny running costs", and the Jaguar earns its place through what has been described as a "premium EV pack".

Don't take our word for it—take a look at your local dealership to see their range of electric vehicles. Although COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the car industry, we expect to see electric vehicles come out of the other side and attract drivers looking for something appealing and trustworthy.
