Lease a car: 2011 is ‘big year for electric vehicles’

JonathanJanuary 21, 2011

Drivers leasing a car have been told that green motors are likely to become more popular in the future.

This is because of a number of issues currently occurring in the motoring industry, Neil Wallis, head of communications at the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP), pointed out.

He noted that solutions to reduce the cost of fuel prices and taxes often go “hand-in-hand” with those that are greener or saves on emissions.

Furthermore, some areas charging less for driving vehicles such as these, for example in the congestion zone of London, could also encourage people to invest in these models in 2011.

Mr Wallis added: “It’s a big year and they will certainly grow in popularity. It is also a year in which people will become much familiar with [electric cars].”

One green vehicle which has proven popular recently is the Nissan Leaf, which was the first full-electric motor to win the Car of the Year award earlier this year.
