Cheaper models and more charging stations are reasons to expect UK electric vehicle sales to double in 2013.
If you’re jumping for joy, hold your horses — there are currently only about 3,000 electric cars in Britain, and most of those are part of company fleets. But any increase is a good thing, and the Guardian reports that British companies will continue to be major EV buyers.
Cheaper models with increased range and battery life (such as the Renault Zoe) will add on to sales of the Nissan Leaf and the “love it or leave it” Vauxhall Ampera, and the national EV charging network is sure to encourage British buyers to seriously consider electric cars.
