Over the past few years, the UK car market has seen the introduction of Hybrid and Electric vehicles which are both known for their ultra-low emission technologies. In the last 2 years alone, around £6 billion of investment has been made by global vehicle manufacturers in the UK, with much of this money used to support both the development and manufacture of these vehicles. However, in some cases the difficulty still remains with convincing the British public that Electric and Hybrid cars are both beneficial and offer lower running costs than petrol and diesel cars.
Go Ultra Low is a collaborative campaign set up to help motorists understand the benefits, cost savings and capabilities of the huge range of ultra low emission vehicles that are readily available on the market. From city runarounds and family hatchbacks, to SUVs and sports cars, there is a ultra low emission car suitable for everyone.
So, what are Go Ultra Low cars?
A Go Ultra Low car is an ultra low emission car which produces 75g or less of CO2 per kilometre from the tailpipe and a minimum 10 miles of zero-emission driving.
Just how much money can I save?
You could save around £800 per year in tax and fuel by switching to an ultra low emission vehicle. Fuel for these vehicles costs from 2p per mile, compared to around 10-12p per mile for a typical petrol or diesel car.
The first Kia car to join the Go Ultra Low campaign is the dedicated 100% electric Kia Soul EV, which has seen a rising demand in sales since its launch. The Kia Soul EV burst onto the scene with a great new look, inspired by the 2012 Kia Track'ster concept whilst retaining the iconic square-shouldered broad stance of the original Kia Soul. Utilising a highly energy-dense lithium-ion polymer battery expected to yield a range of approximately 80-100 miles of real-world driving on a full charge, the Soul EV makes charging easy by plugging into any conventional 240v EV charger. What's more, this perfect family car comes with great peace of mind from the Kia's 7 year/100,00 mile warranty.
The Kia Soul EV allows you to breath life into your driving and stand out from the crowd. Contact Vantage Kia today to take the first step to Go Ultra Low.
