Two-Thirds of British Car Buyers Would Go the All-Electric Route

Britain has a lot of catching up to do, in terms of the adoption of green principles, both in the car industry, as well as in the regular industry. Countries like Germany and Holland are considerably more advanced in the ‘green ways’, yet for a country which actually started the Industrial Revolution, the UK has kind-of been left behind.

Well, it seems that the changing trend is hitting the Isles as well, if a report put together by Motor Trader and British Gas is accurate. It sates that a whopping two-thirds of all British consumers would consider buying an all-electric vehicle. Of those, half would consider buying one now, while the other half would consider it after being provided with more detailed information on the matter.

We say that the shift towards EVs should have happened a long time ago, in the UK, yet it is a good thing that people are finally starting to see the genuine benefits of just such vehicles, which if the number are right may account for as much as 5% of all new cars purchased in the UK by 2015, and as much as 20% by 2020.
