Hybrid and Electric vehicles increase numbers and offer great savings

November 6, 2018

Electric vehicles cost an average 23% less to service and maintain, over three years/60,000 miles than petrol models. A recent study by an automotive data expert found the gap widens for smaller vehicles: a Renault Zoe will cost on average £1,100 to maintain over the period, while a Vauxhall Corsa 1.0T 90 Deisgn costs £1,497, an increase of 35.7%. The research found a Nissan Leaf costs £1,197 over three years. 19% lower than the VW Golf 1.0TSI 110SE at £1,429.

Vehicle car rental fleets have more than doubled the number of alternative powered vehicles over recent years.
