The Undeniable Potential of Electric Vehicles in the UK

The future of electric vehicles in the UK is clear. There are going to be a lot more of them by 2030 when the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles ends. The government’s attempt to decarbonise road transport also requires that all new cars and vans be fully zero emission at the tailpipe by 2035. Changes around electric cars and vans are rapid as guidelines, regulations, and news about funding and chargepoint schemes for electric vehicles are published. Then there is the continued expansion of road user charging zones, aiming to reduce air pollution in cities. 

At Maxus, we believe in the undeniable potential of electric vehicles in the UK and look forward to supporting every business and consumer wanting to make the green transition.

What You Need to Know About Electric Vehicles

Most consumers are unaware that there are different types of electric vehicles (EVs). The most common is the battery electric vehicle (BEV), as you would find at Maxus. With BEVs, an electric motor is powered by batteries recharged at home or at one of the public recharging stations. Electric powered vehicles do not emit any gases, making them a zero emissions vehicle. Other types include hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), and even hydrogen vehicles (FCEVs).

Sustainability is the main reason consumers are encouraged to convert to electric cars as soon as possible. EVs generate zero emissions, thereby protecting our planet and creating cleaner cities and towns for everyone.

The Technology Behind Electric Vehicles

Are you wondering how electric vehicles (EVs) work? Electricity taken from the grid is stored in rechargeable batteries. They in turn power an electric motor which turns the wheels. Electric cars and vans have far fewer parts than internal combustion engines (ICE), as they only have an electric motor (engine), an inverter (converts DC into AC), drivetrain (sends power from the motor to the wheels), the battery, and charging plug.

Since the battery stores the electricity required to run an EV, it defines the vehicle’s range. A van with a higher kilowatt (kW) battery can travel longer distances before it needs to be recharged.     

Have you heard about the Intelligence Onboard system available in the Maxus Electric Vehicle Fleet? The technology helps fleet managers understand how their EVs are driven and what their performance is around charge time, range, and cost.    

The Future of Electric Vehicles in the UK

Cars and vans will not be the only electric vehicles on the road in the next few years. Local transport authorities received government funding through the Zero Emission Bus Regional Areas (ZEBRA) scheme, to convert their fleets to electric buses and create associated infrastructure such as charging hubs. Statistics show that 44,020 public electric vehicle charging devices were installed in the UK as of July 1, 2023. In their electric vehicle infrastructure strategy, the government expects there to be around 300,000 public chargepoints, at a minimum, by 2030.     

Society is moving towards a more sustainable way of travel, and electric vehicles will become mainstream in the coming decades as individuals replace their petrol and diesel cars with EVs. Businesses are expected to make the transition more speedily. Maxus is excited to provide electric vehicles to UK customers and contribute to this positive change.
