We are living in an increasingly electronic world. Protecting the world that we live in is at the forefront of a lot of our minds, and so electrical vehicles (EV) have had a real surge in popularity. Did you know that here at ETR Electrical we install EV Chargers for a great price and in a reliable, trustworthy way? Keep reading to hear what electric vehicles are and why we love them. 

What are electric vehicles? 

An electric vehicle may be powered through a collector system by electricity from off-vehicle sources, or may be self-contained with a battery, solar panels, fuel cells or an electric generator to convert fuel to electricity. They first came into being in the 19th century but have only become more advanced and popular since the late 2000’s. 

Why do we love them? 

Electrical vehicles are becoming less expensive and there are a wide variety of benefits for drivers making the switch. From environmental benefits to financial positives, these vehicles have it all.

Reasonable price

There is an electric vehicle for every budget. Like its petrol and diesel run counterparts, the price depends on the make and model of the vehicle. In the long run, they prove to be a brilliant investment and a better way to get around. 

Cheap to maintain

Throughout the entire life of your electric vehicle, you will spend far less than you do on your current car. There are tax incentives and special government grants, as well as enhanced fuel efficiency and a lower cost of electricity and maintenance. Sound good? 

Environmentally friendly 

Electric vehicles have zero tailpipe emissions making them greener, cleaner and better for the environment than any other cars. Less emissions mean reduced greenhouse gasses, and so we can begin to move towards greener and more renewable sources of energy. 

Home charging

Did you know that you can have a compact, all-weather home charging unit installed outside your home and you’ll be eligible for a £350 government grant to cover installation. This is called the OLEV Grant and we work alongside it. 


Electric vehicles are not only environmentally friendly, they’re friendly to your bank account too! Here at ETR, we are proud to offer an electric vehicle charger installation service to keep your process as simple and easy as possible. Interested in chatting? Contact us today.
