The Future's Electric

The electric revolution is well and truly underway - and there's never been a better time to make the switch. Hyundai, Opel and Mercedes-Benz are now focussing their efforts on electric vehicles and the latest advancements in technology to deliver improved driving ranges and ever faster charging. Electric vehicles offer low to zero road tax, zero emissions, and cheaper running costs than standard combustion engines. With plenty of Government incentives, now may be the time for you to choose electric.

Power up and go

Electric vehicle driving ranges are constantly being improved with new technology and some premium models can now offer a fully electric driving range of over 700km, giving you the power to go further. But regular EVs are hitting above the 400km mark which is ideal for people in Ireland as we float around on our tiny island.

As electric vehicle driving ranges increase, charging times are decreasing thanks to rapid charging points. Rapid charging uses more power than traditional EV chargers and can deliver up to 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.
