Key findings from this year's index: Despite energy price inflation, fuel costs remain significantly lower for electric cars than petrol and diesel cars: fuel costs represent 15% of the total cost of ownership of an EV, while this is 23% and 28% for petrol and diesel drivers

EVs are the best way to protect drivers from skyrocketing fuels costs. Unfortunately, governments are pulling the plug far too early on EV incentives, even in countries with ambitious zero-emission targets. This ‘ban without a plan’ attitude will have disastrous consequences for the fight against climate change. We need consistent, long-term policies that will ensure going EV is the common sense choice for all drivers.

Ayvens has committed itself to achieving net zero tailpipe emissions from its funded fleet by 2030. Ayvens is also a founding partner of The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, launched around the UN General Assembly in September 2017.
