As we approach the 2030 deadline for petrol and diesel new cars, The Car Expert has all the latest news, advice and analysis on EVs
Like it or not, you won’t be able to buy a new petrol, diesel or regular hybrid car after 2030 in the UK. Your choice will be limited to fully electric or plug-in hybrid cars until 2035 – and then the plug-in hybrids will disappear from new car showrooms as well.
Here at The Car Expert, we don’t care whether your car is powered by petrol, diesel, electricity or fairy dust. We’re not going to tell you that an EV is better or worse than a petrol car, or that you should definitely buy one or definitely not buy one. What we want to do is make sure you understand the differences for buying, owning and driving an electric car so you can make the best decision for your needs.
Electric cars have improved enormously over the last few years, and many of the criticisms of EVs are no longer valid. But they’re not perfect – they just have different problems to petrol cars. There’s also a learning curve involved when you switch to an EV, regardless of how easy that salesperson makes it all sound. We’re here to help, with useful, practical and impartial advice about everything to do with electric cars.
