are the future
The world is making the move to hybrid and electric vehicles, but not everyone feels ready.
Switching to electric will take getting used to, so we want to reduce the reluctance, clear up the confusion, and help drivers feel confident about ditching fossil fuels and shift to plug-in vehicles.
Sustainability has never been more important, to the public and to the planet.
From COP26 to the Earthshot Prize, steps are being taken to secure the future and tackle the climate crisis.
The global shift away from fossil fuels is touching every part of our lives, including transport. Governments are backing the move, including the UK, where by 2030, new petrol and diesel cars will no longer be sold.
We want to do our part, so that drivers are comfortable and clued-up when it’s time to get behind the wheel of an electric vehicle.
