Make savings with an electric car

Aviva Car Insurance

We can all agree that now, more than ever, it’s important that we all try and do our best for the environment. Small changes can make a big impact.

One of the biggest moves towards a lower-carbon future is the use of electric cars instead of diesel and petrol. Electric cars have zero exhaust pipe emissions, so are extremely environmentally friendly.1

A big concern most of us have when thinking about buying or switching to an electric car is the price. The initial cost of buying an electric car can be quite expensive, but when you take into account all related costs such as tax and fuel, electric cars are a big money-saver and are actually comparable in price to standard cars.

Take a look below as we break down all the savings you can make with an electric car.
