The Lowdown On Electric: Are Electric Vehicles The Answer?

Ideally we’d do away with cars altogether, to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and carbon emissions. We would use bikes, public transport, walk or even go back to saddling up our trusty steed. But the reality is that most people still use cars daily: in our recent Pip survey, 86% of readers said they rely on cars as their main form of transport.

So if you do own a car, and can’t see any way of doing without it in the near future, what can you do to create the least impact on the planet? With technology changing fast, electric vehicles (EVs) seem to be leading the way to create a lower emission, smaller carbon footprint alternative to petrol and diesel powered vehicles.
