Fleet Evolution welcomes prediction that electric cars are set to outsell diesel and petrol cars by 2027

Over the last decade, the world has become increasingly aware about the amount of emissions and greenhouse gasses it is releasing. And as a result, eco-friendly cars have become familiar sights on roads. Low emission, hybrid and electric vehicles are all popular in today’s forward-thinking society. Fleet Evolution, one of the UK’s best-known salary sacrifice providers to small and medium sized businesses, has welcomed the prediction that electric cars will outstrip their fossil fuelled counterparts by 2027.

Go Low Ultra, a government and industry-backed campaign that was launched to boost ownership of green vehicles, claims that around 1.3 million electric cars will be purchased in the country in 2027 – a figure that will, for the first time, exceed petrol and diesel car sales in the same 12 month period.

Andrew Leech, Director of Fleet Evolution, says, “Although 2027 seems like a long way off, it is only 11 years down the line. In 2005, electric cars were not really on the radar at all, whereas nowadays they offer a real and tangible alternative to petrol and diesel cars. So it seems extremely tangible that this could ring true – and potentially happen even sooner.”

The rising popularity of the Tesla Model S, BMW i3 and Nissan Leaf are thought to be responsible for the increased prediction in sales. Taking the motoring world by storm, these vehicles have lead the way when it comes to eco cars for all types of consumers.

Thanks to new technologies, developments and procedures, car manufacturers have found it easier to create long-lasting and sustainable batteries that can power even the fastest cars on our roads. Andrew continues, “At Fleet, we always knew it was only a matter of time before eco cars overtook fossil fuelled ones, however we never would’ve predicted that it would happen so soon. But we are certain that this will only have a positive effect on the industry and encourage more car owners to make the switch.”

Fleet Evolution is a pioneer of ecofriendly vehicles, and pride themselves on offering the very best cars to their customers. To find out more about Fleet Evolution and how the company can bring a whole host of benefits to SMEs, visit the website: www.fleetevolution.com
