Over a million British drivers would be better suited to owning an electric car today, claims new data. According to new research by What Car? 1.5million UK motorists could make the switch to electric cars today without compromise. The reason for this is because of the number of multi-car homes in the UK with a combination of off-street parking for home-charging and at least one vehicle that never does more than 100 miles in a single journey. Research found that 17 per cent of multi-car households have at least one vehicle that never makes a journey of more than 100 miles.
