How to Cut Fuel Costs - Go Electric!

Record fuel prices prompt a surge in electric van interest

If you’re a motorist in the UK, you’ve no doubt been hit hard by the recent rise in fuel prices. As reported by Sky News on Wednesday 6th April, the cost in fuel has risen so rapidly that it’s broken records. 

Despite promises made by the UK government, Rishi Sunak’s fuel duty cut has not protected motorists as planned, so much so that the cost of filling up a tank of fuel has increased by a whopping 33% compared to March 2021. 

So why have fuel prices suddenly risen dramatically? Well, initially the rising cost of wholesale fuel was to blame, but this of course has worsened since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, causing a rising cost of oil prices for the West.

If you’re feeling the sting of rising fuel prices across the country, then why not consider investing in an electric van instead? Unsurprisingly, the interest in electric vehicles has grown substantially since the price of fuel has risen.

In fact, the demand for battery-powered vans has accelerated at a phenomenal rate. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the electric van market has grown by 21.4%.

Here at Loads of Vans in North Cheam, South London, we have ample amounts of electric vans in stock ready for you to drive away today. At a time when electric van demand is at an all-time high, there’s no need to worry about long lead times when it comes to buying an EV at Loads of Vans. 

Available at the best prices possible, read on to discover our top three electric van models, ready and waiting to become your new business partner today!
