London, UK – October 19, 2021 – Motoring experts encourage British drivers to go green by buying or leasing electric cars following a national fuel shortage that has led to hundreds of petrol stations in the UK being closed.
The fuel crisis, caused by an estimated shortage of more than 100,000 HGV drivers, has meant that drivers of petrol and diesel vehicles have been unable to buy fuel for their cars. In contrast, drivers of electric cars have been virtually unaffected.
Kardi Leasing, a leading UK car-leasing company, stated that electric vehicle inquiries have soared since the start of the crisis and that the fuel shortage should encourage UK drivers to consider an electric car.
“The fuel shortage shows that petrol and diesel vehicles are not as reliable as they once were, and more people should be considering the switch to an electric car,” said Aaron Sherlock of Kardi Leasing, which provides leasing services to corporate and private customers across the UK.
“Up until very recently, most of our inquiries for electric cars were due to their green credentials, but the fuel shortage has been a sign to a lot of drivers that it’s time to go electric. We’ve seen more inquiries about electric vehicles since the start of the fuel crisis, and we’d urge more people to go green and never have to worry about queuing for fuel again.”
Since the announcement of the Government’s plan to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030, some motorists have been hesitant about the cost, reliability, and efficiency of electric vehicles.
“Almost every misconception about EVs has been proven wrong as they are now cheaper to charge and maintain and can cover hundreds of miles on a single charge. The fuel crisis is just one more reason why everyone should go electric.”
