Cost Efficiency

Switching to an electric vehicle can save you money thanks to improved efficiency, different grants, tax benefits and price exemptions.

Electric vehicles are much more energy efficient than internal combustion engines. This improvement in efficiency has led to electric vehicles being much more beneficial to your pocket as well as the environment. An example of this would be to charge a 40kWh battery from 0 to 100% at home using a typical domestic household tariff of 15p/kWh - this would cost approximately £5.00 - £7.00 and there are many supermarkets, cinemas and some car parks offering free charging.

When purchasing an electric vehicle you can receive a grant of up to £3,000, on top of this electric vehicles are exempt from paying the basic rate of VED, which saves drivers £145 per year. Company car drivers also benefit from a reduced company car tax (BIK) and businesses can gain an enhanced capital write down allowance.

Most electric 'city cars' do not have to pay city congestion charges.

Thinking of Making the Switch?

The demand for Electric Vehicles (EV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has increased significantly in the UK. At Bassetts Motor Group, we realise more people are gradually driving hybrid and fully electric cars and vans as opposed vehicles with conventional combustion engines. As a result, we now have a comprehensive range of EV/PHEV Citroen, Honda and Nissan vehicles including the Nissan Leaf, Citroen C5 Aircross Hybrid and Honda-e, not to mention a wide range of vans.

Servicing and maintenance costs are significantly less than petrol or diesel vehicles due to the electric motors containing fewer parts in comparison to a conventional combustion engine. Also, Eletric vehicles dont have starter motors, clutches, gearbox, exhausts and a lot more ... In addition, the brake pads and discs in an EV have considerably less wear and tear as the braking is achieved through the regenerative braking features.

The battery life of an electric vehicle is expected to last around 10 years. However, this varies across vehicles and is dependent on various items such as cooling systems, size of battery etc.

Find Local Charging Points Near You?

There is a range of charging options available for your electric vehicle including accelerated, domestic and rapid charging, each with varied charging times and capabilities. Many charging stations are located around the UK which can be operated by registering with the network, downloading the networks app and some now have card payments built in.

Accelerated charging was specifically designed for electric vehicles. It’s faster to charge than using a domestic plug. With power levels commonly at 7kW, your vehicle would fully charge in 7.5 hours. Domestic charging uses a standard household 3 pin socket. This method of charging can take 22 hours from a typical domestic household and can be risky if the socket has not been properly checked. Therefore we would always recommend that you have any socket you plan to charge from checked for suitability by a certified electrician. Rapid charging uses direct currents to charge the battery quickly. They charge the first 80% as fast and efficiently as possible and then stop or slow down charging for the final 20%.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
