The popularity of electric vehicles in the UK has shot up over the last few years, with over 420,000 pure-electric cars now on the road, and over 780,000 plug-in cars (pure-EV & PHEV), compared with just 3,500 in 2013. This huge increase in electric car sales has come about because of a greater level of choice for drivers, a shift in the public's attitude towards electric cars and a constantly improving public recharging network. Combined, this means that UK electric car buyers have a greater selection of vehicles to choose from than ever before.

The future is bright too, with new plug-in cars - covering a wide cross-section of the market - launching all the time, meaning an electric car is now a viable option for a large number of motorists. What's more, the Plug-in Car Grant reduces the price of pure-electic cars costing less than £32,000 by £1,500.

The electric car microsite includes an electric vehicle (EV) buying guide, search tools to help pick the best electric car for you, helpful information about EV charging and reviews of many of the EV models available to buy. Visit the Plug-in Hybrid microsite for more information on PHEVs.
