You can’t hide from the fact that electric cars are becoming more and more popular. It’s becoming a common theme to see charging points in car parks. With 227,000 electric cars already on the road in the UK, it’s time to start thinking about your next purchase.

I know I’ve considered it. Mainly because I hate getting petrol! I always put it off for as long as possible but the end up being late because I forget I’m almost out.

An electric car is becoming less of a luxury and more a serious norm – and they should be! Say you walk into your nearest Vauxhall dealership and test drive their Vauxhall Corsa-e (we’ll get into it a little later), and you finally feel what it’s like to take a car on a test drive that’s not going to be a gas guzzler. You’re going to instantly feel your pockets filling because you no longer have to stop at petrol stations to fill up. The costs are ridiculously good, and despite the fact that there are tons of environmental benefits to electric cars, you can’t help but think of the money.

But there are other pros to electric cars – the cost. The overnight charge should cost you about £3 for, let’s say an average electric car doing 150 miles per charge. That’s a lot cheaper than petrol or diesel. That would probably cost me about £20-25 in my 1.2lt petrol Ford Fiesta!

If there electric you are using is renewable, then there’s an added bonus of not using coal or oil sources.

Saving a bit more money – electric cars under £40k are exempt from road tax.

So even if electric cars do cost more than petrol or diesel cars to buy, there are plenty of savings along the way.

There are quite a few electric cars out there, but here are three that I like the look and sound of:

I think I’m leaning more towards the Corsa-E. My first car was a Corsa and I loved it!
