Electric Car Information Evening
Thursday 25th September 7pm – 8.30pm, St. Bryce Kirk
In the past few years electric cars have really started to become viable alternatives to petrol and diesel cars. We’re inviting members of the public and local businesses to come along and learn more about electric vehicles and the expanding charging infrastructure throughout Fife and Scotland. Experts from the Energy Saving Trust will be there to tell us about the benefits of electric vehicles, available funding to help you make the switch, and other key considerations for switching to electric. Plus we’ll be hearing from local electric vehicle users about their first-hand experiences of switching to an electric car, and there will be plenty of time for your questions.
Two electric cars, a BMW i3 and a Nissan LEAF will be on display at the event.
This event is free and anyone is welcome. Please register to let us know you plan to come along – simply phone 01592 858458 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
According to the Energy Saving Trust (EST), driving a car powered by electricity costs around 2-3p per mile compared to around 16p per mile for the average family car. There are also reported benefits to our health through improved air quality. A recent EST survey of electric car owners in Scotland found that
- 95% of owners surveyed would recommend EVs to others
- 81% of owners include fuel cost savings as one of the main advantages of EVs,
- 60% see helping improve air quality as an advantage
- An average EV owner saves £1,400 each year on fuel
