If you’re in the market for an electric vehicle, you’ve come to the right place. Bridgend Motor Group’s Electric Vehicle Centre is Ayrshires first and only EV specialist, providing used electric car sales, servicing and repairs. When it comes to electric and hybrid cars, we know everything that there is to know.
The Benefits of Going Electric
First, you get to drive a vehicle that produces no harmful emissions. You can finally get a car for runs around your local town, safe in the knowledge that you’re not adding any toxic chemicals to the air. Plus, when you go electric, you’re also cutting down on your CO2 emissions, even if you recharge your vehicle using energy generated by a fossil-fuel powerplant. Electricity is a much more efficient energy source than regular fuel, allowing you to go further for a given implied CO2 output.
The benefits of choosing an electric vehicle as your next car are tremendous.
Going green isn’t the only benefit of electric vehicles, and semi-electric plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). You also get improved reliability. Compared to a petrol engine, electric motors have far fewer moving parts - sometimes an order of magnitude fewer. That means that there are fewer parts to wear out and things to go wrong. When you consider these, the amount of money that you have to spend servicing an electric vehicle is much lower than for a petrol or diesel car, helping you to recover money over the long term.
It is a similar story when it comes to refuelling. Charging an electric vehicle is much more cost-effective than refuelling at the petrol station. On a cost-per-mile basis, you can save upwards of 80 per cent - great for people who drive a lot of mines.
Finally, electric cars and BEV vehicles tend to have more interior space. There’s no need for a giant gear shaft to run down the centre of the car when you locate the motors next to each drive wheel. The cabin, therefore, feels much roomier than in a traditional vehicle.
Types of Electric Vehicle
When it comes to electric vehicles, you have a lot of choice. You can either go with hybrid vehicles which combine an electric motor with a backup petrol engine or go fully electric, depending on your goals.
The majority of electric vehicles on the market today are hybrid cars, simply because of the cost of batteries, but that is changing.
Here at Bridgend Motor Group, we make it incredibly simple to change from your regular petrol vehicle to electric. We offer a wide selection of different cars, including vans. We have fully electric models on offer including the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3, as well as practical hybrids, like the Toyota Prius 1.8 VVTI and the Nissan E-NV200 van
Whatever type of car you’re looking for, we can help you go green. Our team of experts can talk you through the latest technologies and provide you with full support for the life of your vehicle.
