Electric and hybrid cars: cut costs and carbon

Electric and hybrid cars will not only cost you less in terms of fuel, they benefit from lower or even zero-rated road tax (and BiK tax, if you’re a company car driver) because they boast lower carbon emissions (another boon, if eco-credentials are important to you). These days the choice is growing and the costs of this new technology is coming down, while range and performance is increasing all the time, as manufacturers innovate to keep pace with regulations and consumer demands.
