Steve Gooding, director of the RAC Foundation, commented: “Unsurprisingly persons with diesels have been carrying out most mileage, most likely trying to get greater lengthy-distance fuel economic climate, but this research is also proof that battery-electrical driven cars are not just trophy autos signalling their owners’ eco-friendly qualifications but prior to the lockdown ended up racking up the miles as day-to-day transport.

“Tens of thousands and thousands of persons however travel petrol and diesel-driven cars, but this knowledge implies that entrepreneurs of electrical cars have found them to be a useful proposition, jogging up the sort of massive annual mileages that many of us will need to do, tough preconceptions about their range and the relieve of recharging.”
