Electric Vehicle News

E-bikes are more affordable than cars or motorbikes. They require less maintenance and are more cost-effective to operate. The battery can be charged for a few cents, and the cost of the battery will last for several years, making e-bikes a more affordable option than gas-powered vehicles.
For the UK to become a leader in EV manufacturing, it needs large factories (called gigafactories) making EV batteries and quickly, as demand for EVs is taking off ahead of a 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars, and the requirement for all new cars to be fully zero emission by 2035.
Being able to share the road in a considerate manner is one of the most important parts of being a driver. We all have a responsibility to look out for each other, whether that’s checking for motorbikes in cities or horses on country lanes. 

Why are cars recycled?


Landfill sites are a significant source of pollution. Many waste materials take a long time to break down, if they ever do, releasing greenhouse gases and toxic substances that can become hazardous for humans and the environment. The most recent data from the UK Government shows that waste generated from commercial and industrial activities in England has remained relatively consistent since 2010, with 32 million tonnes produced that year and 33.8 tonnes produced in 2020.

It still feels like the UK could win a good share of the EV market, but it is going to have to get its gigafactories up and running. With UK battery output still tiny, the temptation is for EV producers to move overseas.

This means we will need to rethink how we get around – leaving the car-based model – rather than seeking to replace one kind of technology (the combustion motor) with another (the electric motor).
