Electric Vehicle Mythbusting

Myth 1

Electric vehicles produce the same amount of emissions as a petrol or diesel vehicle…

Electric vehicles produce significantly less emissions than their petrol and diesel counterparts – a journey from London to Glasgow by the average petrol car emits 3.4 times the CO2e of an average electric car (including the emissions produced in electricity generation).

Myth 2

Electric vehicles aren’t good for long journeys…

Studies show that on average, most journeys we make every year are under five miles. However, if you are planning a longer trip, fully electric vehicles have an average range of 197 miles, with many models able to go much further on a single charge. The average charging time can range from 30 minutes and up to more than 12 hours. This all depends on the speed of the charging station and the size of the battery.

Myth 3

There aren’t enough public charge points…

There are now over 22,000 charging points around the UK. The key is to plan ahead on long journeys if you need to top up charge, look for chargers in interesting places and check availability using a charge point map such as Zap-Map to avoid waiting.

Myth 4

Electric vehicle batteries are wasteful and can’t be recycled…

Many manufacturers are researching how electric vehicle batteries can be repurposed once they’ve hit retirement age. One idea is repurposing electric vehicle batteries to power homes and buildings. However, there are no definitive answers as to what will happen to electric vehicle batteries once they’re no longer recyclable. The time that batteries spend in an electric vehicle is often just the beginning of their useful life.
