Sometimes there is no alternative to a car trip – but there are ways to reduce the amount of money you spend on driving, and you’ll help reduce your environmental impact too! To drive smarter you need to think about the type of car you own, the way you drive, the loads your carry and type of fuel the car uses. All these factors contribute towards the carrying emission levels caused by cars.
Could your next car be an electric or hybrid model?
New electric and hybrid cars are coming onto the market all the time, with government targets to phase out all diesel and petrol cars over the next few decades. Whilst initially more expensive to buy or lease, reduced running costs and exemptions mean whole-life costs can work out much lower. So, whilst you are doing your bit to help the environment, you could also be saving money!
