Under current plans, the UK Government have pledged to ban the sale of all new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030, with a ban on new hybrid sales in 2035 as part of its strategy to cut the transport sector’s carbon emissions. It’s estimated that over the next 10 years, 10 million people will make the switch to an EV. And this year is proving that hybrids and EV’s are gaining in popularity, with sales up by 68% for hybrids and 47% for fully electric vehicles compared to August 2020. So, with the admin fees covered by Creditplus, maybe now’s the time to switch to driving an EV!

A staple on the British roads, the Corsa has gone electric! With a range of 209 miles and an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes on a rapid charging point, though a full charge at home with a three-pin socket will take around 24 hours.
It looks like the classic 208, it is a regular 208. With a range of 217 miles, a 0-62 time of 8.1 seconds, and an 80 percent charge time of half an hour. The E-208 is an EV not to be underestimated.
A small, front-wheel drive crossover SUV, meet the Hyundai Kona electric. With two motor options available, the variety in range is certainly something to consider. The 39.2kWh battery and a 134bhp e-motor provides 189 miles of range while the 64kWh battery with the 201bhp e-motor gives a whopping 300 miles of range.
The Citroen e-C4 is only available in a single spec, a 50kW battery with a lone 136bhp e-motor powers the front axle. This gives the e-C4 a top speed of 93mph, 0-62 in nine seconds, and a range of up to 217 miles. On a domestic charger, a full charge takes around seven and a half hours, on a rapid charger the e-C4 can reach 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
The Id.3 is space efficient, nimble on its toes and full of the best in-car tech around. Perfectly filling the EV family hatch gap, the Id.3 has a range of 263 miles and can do 0-62 mph in 7.3 seconds. The Id.3 performs well at low speeds and retains plenty of motorway punch.
