Croydon Motor Show 2016
The Croydon Ecodrive Motorshow showcased some of the most innovative vehicles in the fast growing ‘green energy’ transport market.
Among the vehicles on show were the new Nissan Leaf, the world’s bestselling 100% electric car, with a range of up to 150 miles. As companies and their clients become more aware of their carbon footprint, it seems likely that demand for vehicles like the Leaf is set to become even greater.
Indeed, the latest research forecasts that nearly 17 million hybrid and electric vehicles will be on the roads globally by 2020 - five million more than predicted last year.
And the new study by Juniper Research highlights three key areas that will lead to this upsurge in uptake of these fuel efficient vehicles:
• More consumer education on the benefits of electric vehicles
• More public charging outlets on Britain’s major routes
• An increase in the range of electric vehicles
Savvy businesses are already using their ‘green credentials’ as a unique selling point to differentiate themselves from competitors. They also realise that environmentally friendly transport can be both fuel efficient and forward thinking!
The Croydon Ecodrive Motorshow showcased a range of fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly transport options.
