As we enter yet another government lockdown, individuals are finding themselves with more free time. We all know that crazy purchases were made at the beginning of the year during the first lockdown, so what would be different this time?

Should I buy an EV? Has the thought ever crossed your mind? Why not make it your next lockdown purchase, or even as a Christmas present for a family member, how great would that be?

Is it the right time to buy an EV?

Some individuals question whether 2020 is the right year to buy an electric car, but guess what… it is! You’ll be ahead of the crowd, plus you’ll be able to benefit from financial extras, especially if you use the car as a company car

New EVS on the market

It’s definitely been a big year for electric cars. According to ‘next green car’, we can see that in September the amount of electric cars being registered has increased by 184% in comparison to 2019.

Not only have we seen the number of people switching to an electric car soar, the automotive industry has been producing EVS like they are going out of fashion. 

This year we have seen the release of big brands including but not limited to:

  • Porsche – The Porsche Taycan is definitely a car fit for a sports car fanatic. With over 250 miles of range, will it be a vehicle that rivals the Tesla brand?
  • Volkswagen – The Volkswagen ID.3 was only released a short time ago, and it is already one of the leading EVs of the year. EVision customers who have hired it already, absolutely love it!
  • Vauxhall – The Vauxhall Corsa-e has been designed with the original internal combustion engine model in mind. Sticking to a well known design has been key for even the most controversial individuals to switch to electric.

“There isn’t enough variety in electric vehicles available”, is definitely not an excuse anymore!

Are you still making essential journeys?

If you still need to make essential journeys to work, an electric car is a great way to avoid public transport. When you buy an EV, you’ll feel great knowing that you aren’t polluting the environment with a standard vehicle. Plus you’ll also enjoy your own space, away from others when you drive.

Charging your EV

Some people worry about where they can charge their car. In fact, this shouldn’t even be something that crosses your mind. When out and about, an EV driver can use ZapMap or carwow to locate the nearest charge point. If you’re looking to buy an EV, you will benefit from buying a wall box charger that can be installed at your home. You will then be able to charge your vehicle overnight, ready for the day ahead.
