Amazing Electric Cars 2017 UK: The 5 Amazing EVs on The Road Right Now: AUTOS
In 2017 an electric vehicle (EV) is a viable choice for those in the car market. What’s more, government’s plans to improve air quality across the UK, the sale of petrol and diesel cars could be banned by 2040 and that means we’re going to see more and more EVs on our roads in the coming decade.
In fact, as part of the government’s Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark has pledged to increase the National Productivity Investment Fund to £31 billion while planning to support the rise of electric vehicles by investing £400 million in charging infrastructure. It has additionally offered an extra £100 million to extend the plug-in car grant.
Furthermore, the new Nissan Leaf is launching next year, while BMW recently unveiled its new i3 and a sportier i3s model to make electric cars appeal to more people. Just last month, BMW also announced it will be making an all-electric Mini in its Cowley plant, while Volkswagen recently unveiled plans for an electric campervan, officially known as a Microbus, to be released in 2022. Oh, and even James Dyson has announced plans to launch his own EV by 2020.
