Is it the end of the traffic jam?

Drivers of electric and hybrid vehicles have always been able to enjoy a number of perks and privileges, including free charging in special bays, and free parking in some areas, like in the London Borough of Westminster. Ultra-low emission vehicles, or ULEVs, are exempt from central London’s congestion charge, and they are not taxed. An insurance policy on an electric vehicle is often cheaper than insuring a traditional car, too. more info…

New Electric Vehicle Testing Laboratory

The UK government has announced ambitious plans to make all new vans and cars emission free by 2040. Upwards of 600 million pounds will be spent over the next five years on the design and manufacture of ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs); this is expected to massively boost air quality in the medium and long term, and save some 65 million tonnes of carbon. A quarter of European electric vehicles are already built in the UK, and the government is keen to see this continue. more info…

Car insurance cover up!

A new study by ‘comparethemarket’ has revealed a somewhat astonishing statistic on the cost of renewing your existing insurance policy or taking out a new deal. Motorists who leave it until the very last minute to insure their vehicles face a hefty premium, which can run to hundreds of pounds extra in many cases. For example, a typical policy that costs around £360 when taken out up to a month before the previous cover expires can cost upwards of £685 on renewal day. These figures are further affected by a recent rise in insurance premium tax, which means comparable policies on both new and used cars can be £100 more expensive than at the same time last year. more info…
