UK Electric Car Sales Expected to Double in 2013
Sales of electric cars in Britain are expected to double in 2013 as cheaper models enter the market and the number of charging points increases.
Numbers of fully electric cars are expected to rise from 3,000 to 6,000, according to Ben Lane, managing editor of the website nextgreencar.com. He warned, however, that the switch to electric vehicles was still moving slowly.
Lane said: "The pricing is not yet quite right and the range is still not long enough. Very few people in 2012 were willing to pay a significant sum more for a car that still cannot do everything."
