Cars & Vans Dealers | South of England | FG Barnes

Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly more popular, and why wouldn’t they be? The car drives silently, and produces zero harmful emissions into the environment. If that’s not enough to be convinced, you also don’t have to pay for road tax, no congestion charge in London areas, and the government will even give you a grand to purchase one.

An electric model is already a feasible alternative to a petrol or diesel car for a lot of British drivers. Although the demand for electric cars has surged in the last four years, with registrations increasing from around 3500 in 2013 to almost 160,000 by the end of 2018 according to WhatCar?, the number of electric car sales in the UK still remains relatively small compared to other fossil-fuelled engine types.

The range of electric cars currently and soon to be on the market is increasing significantly and will continue to do so throughout the next 5 years as they get on board with new technology, new ranges, faster charging times and lower prices.

One of the major setbacks that would put people off purchasing an electric car as opposed to other car types would be the range of which you could drive before needing to charge the car again. This range has dramatically improved over the years, some giving you up to 200 miles!

FG Barnes are receiving a much wider range of electric cars as time goes on, and you can keep up to date with our new stock below!
