Facts & Advantages

An electric car means a clear advantage

Electric cars are efficient, quiet and locally emission-free. They require less maintenance than combustion engines and much of the electricity they need comes from renewable sources. That is a decisive advantage for the environment. And for all of us

Bye bye, CO2

Electric cars have numerous advantages for the environment. 

Better carbon footprint
The carbon footprint of electric cars is significantly better than that of combustion engines - over their entire service life. This has been proven by numerous studies. The most important reason is that electric motors are more energy-efficient and do not emit a single gram of CO2 while you're driving.   
 better for the environment
Of course it's true that energy is needed for battery production and that releases CO2. But electric cars recoup this energy during operation. A recent study shows that the CO2 balance is already equalised after about 30,000 kilometres - a super value with an assumed battery life of 250,000 kilometres!   
No pollutants? fantastic!

Electric cars are not included in any pollutant class. That makes perfect sense because they don't emit any pollutants. That means they can be driven everywhere without hesitation - even in the growing number of city-centre environmental zones. A clear advantage over all combustion engines. 

Remember, you will still need to register your electric car to be able to drive in these zones.

Financial advantages for your business

Whether as company cars or commercial vehicles - electric cars are reliable companions in everyday life: they're emission-free, stress-free and highly efficient. When it comes to company cars,there are some serious tax and financial advantages to make the most of. In many countries, governments have reduced the rate that the private use of electric company cars are taxed at, down to 0.25 % (BEV) and 0.5 % (PHEV) of the gross list price - probably until 2030. Companies therefore benefit from low taxes - and low insurance premiums, while employees pay less personal tax too. In short: electric cars are a quick pay-off for your company!

Moreover, electric cars are particularly low-maintenance because they have fewer wearing components. This means less downtime - great for fleet operators. These are all good reasons why electric cars are bein increasingly adopted by companies and in vehicle fleets.


Charging and range

Maximum driving pleasure. More and more range. And ever shorter charging times.

How does the battery work?
Just like the smartphone? Not quite. But not too much different either. With electric car batteries, it's a good idea to keep the battery level somewhere between 20% and 80%. You can find out why this is so and many other interesting facts about batteries here.
