According to data from BuyaCar, EV enquiries are up by an enormous 500% following the UK Government announcing plans to ban the sale of new cars and vans powered wholly by petrol or diesel engines in 2030 and hybrids by 2035.
BuyaCar said that they usually see around 300 searches per day for EV enquires but in the 24 hours following the announcement, this shot up to almost 1,700!
Christofer Lloyd, editor of BuyaCar, said: “It seems that the government’s announcement has really sparked renewed interest in electric vehicles, surging on our site by a magnitude of 500% literally overnight.”
With demand still there for used petrol cars and used diesels still remaining a popular choice among vehicle buyers, EVs have a long way to go. Do you feel we’re ready for wider electrification? What will you be buying post 2030 – EV, Hybrid or Used Petrol/Diesel?
