Going full electric has now become a viable and increasingly popular option for drivers around the world.
Ask Web Guru has recently acquired a new electric company car from Select Car Leasing, the Renault Megane E-Tech Hatchback.
Ask Web Guru would like to give a special thank you to Liam Winder and the team at Select Car Leasing, who helped and gave us expert guidance on the car and how to be more eco-friendly!

“After being recommended to Liam at Select Car Leasing I was really impressed with the service, communication and above all understanding during the selection and application process.
“This wasn’t wrapped up in a matter of days, I dithered and delayed at times until I was ready however, if I had any questions during this process, Liam was always on hand, helpful and understanding.
“The process was stress-free and our new motor was delivered within a month as stated during the pre-application process.
“Ask Web Guru Ltd are proud to be fully electric thanks to Liam and Select Car Leasing!”
What are the benefits of electric cars?
Electric cars contribute significantly to reducing the carbon footprint. Unlike petrol or diesel cars, EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions, making them cleaner and greener.
By switching to an electric car, you’re helping to reduce harmful air pollution and promoting a healthier environment.
Running costs for electric cars are considerably lower than those of conventional fuel-powered cars.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, the cost per mile is estimated between 2-4p for them, compared to 12-15p for petrol or diesel cars. Additionally, EVs have fewer mechanical parts, leading to reduced maintenance costs over time.
To encourage the adoption of EVs, the UK government offers several incentives. The Plug-in Car Grant scheme provides a discount on the price of brand-new low-emission vehicles. Moreover, electric cars are exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty and congestion charges in some areas, making them even more economical.
Performance and Comfort
Electric cars are known for their smooth and quiet operation. Their instant torque allows for quick acceleration, making driving, particularly in cities, a pleasure. Plus, the elimination of engine noise contributes to a serene driving experience.
One of the initial concerns about owning an electric car was the scarcity of charging points. However, the UK is rapidly expanding its charging infrastructure with an increasing number of public, home, and workplace charging points.
This development makes owning and charging an electric car more convenient than ever before.
With the UK government’s ambitious target of banning the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030, choosing an electric car prepares you for the future. It’s not just about driving a car; it’s about embracing a sustainable lifestyle.
