Surge Seen in Electric Car Sales

March 2022 was a profitable month for electric car sales as more vehicles were bought this month than in 2019 as a whole. 

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that over 39,000 new electric vehicles were registered in the month of march, which is over 1,000 more than in 2019, the Guardian reports.

This rise in sales suggests that electric will be the most popular source of fuel come 2025 and gives a positive outlook on the future of car sales. 

Given climate concerns, the idea of greener and less destructive vehicles being bought en masse indicates a growing interest in leading a healthier and cleaner way of life and shows that the public are taking action to fight against global warming and rising carbon emissions. 

Current fuel cost concerns are no problem for those driving electric vehicles. As petrol prices skyrocket those with electric cars are safe in the knowledge that they are contributing less to environmental problems and also saving themselves money along the way. 

This rise in sales has led to predictions that electric car sales will soon overtake petrol and diesel vehicle sales entirely, according to the news source, revealing a new future for drivers that is both sustainable and inexpensive. 

However, with this rise in electric cars, there comes a higher demand for charging points across the country. 

While there are currently charging points available in public areas such as supermarkets and petrol stations, as well as being able to charge vehicles at home, if this surge in popularity continues without an increase of accessible charging points, we may begin to see issues arise.

This is cause for concern as people with electric cars that do not have access to private or off-road parking may rely entirely on public charging points to fuel their cars and if these are in high demand it may leave some people unable to charge their cars entirely.
