Why the Electric Vehicle Revolution Matters
June 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Moving to an EV is not an “if” but a ”when” The main advantage of electric vehicles is their reduced environmental impact compared to traditional vehicles. Pure electric vehicles emit no carbon dioxide when driving because they have no tailpipe. As a result, air pollution is greatly decreased.
Simply put, electric vehicles make our streets cleaner, improving the quality of life for bicycles and pedestrians in our towns and cities. Just one electric vehicle on the road can reduce CO2 emissions by 1.5 million grammes annually on average.
By 2030, the UK government will ban the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles. Electric vehicles will play a significant role in the government’s effort to decrease carbon emissions to zero by the year 2050.
Additionally, EVs can reduce noise pollution, particularly in cities where speeds are often modest. Driving an electric car contributes to a more tranquil atmosphere for all of us because they are much quieter than conventional automobiles.
In this webinar we will be asking:
- How easy is it to get an EV?
- Is there enough electricity on the grid for EVs?
- Will the infrastructure be there to support the EV revolution?
- How can companies get fleets of EVs?
- Are there tax benefits for corporates to having EVs?
- How expensive are EV’s?
- Will the charge last to get you to your destination?
- What are the benefits of switching to EV?
- What are the challenges to switching to EV and how do you overcome them?
Plus so much more.
