In the last few years, there has been a surge in the number of car owners trading in their petrol or diesel vehicles for more eco-friendly alternatives. The electric car has grown in popularity in recent years with owners choosing them for their environmental and cost-friendly benefits. In fact, in October 2019, electric cars accounted for 10% of all car sales in the UK and It is estimated there are currently over 260,000 electric-powered vehicles on UK roads.
