Electric vehicles are an essential part of a clean energy future
Just a few days into 2017, and the UK broke its air pollution limit for the entire year.
Air pollution in the UK causes 40,000 premature deaths each year. Lots of things contribute to this crisis, but there’s one obvious place to start – the thousands of new diesel cars rolling onto our roads every day. The facts are widely known, but worth repeating.
Each year in the UK, around 40,000 deaths are attributable to exposure to air pollution. To produce a cleaner environment for all to live and work in, the development of alternative, cleaner fuels is essential.
Plug-in electric vehicles (also known as electric cars or EVs) can help keep your town and your world clean. In general, EVs produce fewer emissions that contribute to climate change and smog than conventional vehicles. An electric vehicle fleet will lead to immense improvements in the quality of air in areas. This will contribute to much cleaner environments, a reduction in medical treatment and expenditure related to air pollution, an easing on the healthcare system, longer life expectancies and better health outcomes for the people of Glenrothes.
Eco Friendly Taxis is proud to be the first all electric car taxi fleet operating in Glenrothes and sees this as a major step forward in improving the air quality in Glenrothes.
