If you’re thinking about making the switch yourself, start with our dedicated Electric Car Hub. That’s your go-to place for deals, advice and buying guides. If you want to know more on how the UK is getting ready for the age of electric, our quarterly Road to 2030 report will tell you all you need to know.

And, if you haven’t already heard you could win a brand-new electric car for free in our monthly Electric Car Giveaway! It’s a new electric car every month, with insurance covered and the option of a free home charger thrown in!
