After nearly 100 years of the internal combustion engine or ICE as they are known in the Electric Car scene, a old automotive technology has come of age. Yes you read that correctly. The first electric car dates back to 1828 no less, but the birth of the internal combustion engine put pay to the electric quickly, now the electric car is back for a second bite of the cherry and its revenge.
Cleaner, quieter and fun to drive, the modern electric car is here, and this time it's here to stay. But, after so many years of the same petrol or diesel cars and vans, it’s understandable that you may have questions about switching to electric. And that’s where we come in.
Making The Switch To An Electric Car
Here are Motoring Deals we were complete petrol heads, until we went for a test drive at our local Tesla Store. We were completely blown away, and hocked. The only issue was the price! After a lot of man maths we took plunge and ordered a electric car.
What About Charging And The Bills
Here are the best bits. Our petrol bill for our previous car was over £80 a month, and our electric will has only gone up by £30. So were are already saving £50 a month on "fuel". We've never ran out of battery power just like we've never ran out of fuel. You see, the great thing about an electric car is, you start each day with a full battery, no more queueing at petrol stations. Thanks to economy 7 from our really cheap energy supplier Bulb. We use the cheapest grid supplied electric to charge our car. We are hoping to go off grid and store our power soon using batteries and solar but in the mean time we switched to Bulb and with THIS link you can get £50 account credit and they pay your exit fees from your old supplier too. PLUS, if you share your Bulb referral code with friends and family you BOTH get £50 every time someone new sign up. So what are you waiting for here is £50 from us to you. Even if you don't have any electric cars in your house hold Bulb could save money on your energy bills

Before Buying Second Hand
There are a few electric cars on the market that as an owner you don't actually own the battery, it's owned by the car manufacturer meaning you have to "rent" it. Whilst this does cover you if the battery fails, it means your going to erode those savings over petrol or diesel before you even turn the wheel. So be sure to check who owns the battery on cars like the Nissan Leaf. Above all, always get a vehicle history check from someone like HPI or RAC Car Passport. It could save you from buying a car with outstanding finance on etc.
