What you will find in the FREE EV Bible:
We have created this FREE consumer guide for anyone new to the world of Electric Vehicles and those thinking of buying an Electric Vehicle.
From 2030 there will be no new petrol or diesel vehicles for sale, you will be able to buy a hybrid car – which runs on electric and petrol – until 2035, but after that you will only be able to buy 100% pure electric vehicles.
The EV Bible will hopefully give you all the information you need to prepare for that and also dispel some myths which might make you worried about the switch.
