You would be forgiven for thinking that the invention of the electric car is a new one, given their current popularity. But the first electric car was actually developed over 100 years ago, although petrol and diesel vehicles have remained the most popular choices ever since. Now, with a greater understanding of the environment alongside the efficiency of electric cars, electric car hire is more popular than ever. This move has been greatly helped by Tesla, possibly the most innovative luxury car marque of our time. Tesla have proven that electric cars can be beautiful, luxurious, and high
performance, breaking records and winning coveted awards traditionally associated with petrol-powered cars.

With the UK government announcing that new petrol and diesel cars will be banned from sale from 2030, and a ban on hybrids to follow by 2035, electric car hire is now set to become even more popular. After this time, UK residents will only be able to purchase new electric cars with zero emissions in a bid to tackle pollution. With this comes a pledge to expand the charging network, aiming to make driving an electric car easier and more accessible than ever before. And as the average life of a new petrol or diesel car is around 14 years, by 2050 we can expect most people to be driving electric cars, making traditional vehicles a thing of the past. While this may seem like a daunting prospect for some, we’re actually really excited. The move will push luxury car marques into developing new technologies and improvements for electric vehicles and could see us driving beautiful cars which have a much greater range, shorter charging times, and better automation systems than ever before..
