Stuart and maybe you - yourself contributed to this significant number of deliveries! That's a lot of time on the road, not to mention money spent on petrol. In recent years with more cities across the UK having added clean air zone charges, more and more couriers have become interested in alternatives - electric vehicles. Let’s have a closer look at some of the electric vehicle benefits:
💸You can save money, as electricity costs less per mile than petrol or diesel. On average electric charge per mile can start from 9-14p compared to vehicles powered by petrol or diesel that starts from 14-19p.
🍃You can contribute to cleaner air as electric vehicles are better for the environment and lead to less fumes from cars or mopeds.*
*Yes, renting an e-moped is much better for nature, as it runs on electricity with a battery fully charging in 3,5 hours.
🧰 Low maintenance, as electric vehicles are easier to maintain, because they have less parts so the vehicles keep working for longer.
