It seems that for many people moving from carbon fuelled cars and vans to zero emissions vehicles is something of a leap into the unknown. How do I charge the battery? How far can I drive? Is using electricity and batteries really greener? Aren’t electric cars all very expensive? Of course there are still plenty of vested interests in the vehicle industry eager to keep some of these fears alive.

However, here at HEAT we are very keen to answer your questions, dispel the concerns and myths and show how, in 2021, zero emissions motoring can be an affordable and practical proposition. You can enjoy significantly reduced running costs, have a much lower climate impact and we can all enjoy cleaner air and quieter towns. All electric car sales in the UK increased by nearly 200% to over 100,000 cars and in Norway in 2020, more than half of all new car sales were all battery powered.

We can offer information through the web links below and an opportunity to hear from and ask questions of a panel of people who have already kicked the carbon habit with their car choice in an online video conference.
