New app calculates cost and environmental benefits of EVs


A new app that calculates how much money UK drivers could save by switching to an electric vehicle (EV) has launched today (September 9). 

The EV8 app is free to download and is backed by £2.7m of UK Space Agency Funding. 

Alongside the cost benefits of going electric, the app also provides users with details on the CO2 savings and air quality improvements that they could achieve.

Drivers can also see which EV would be most suitable for them based on their current vehicle and lifestyle. The app also shows drivers how close their nearest charge points are and which journeys can be completed without the need to top-up en-route.
