Five reasons to go all-electric with the Korando e-Motion
Switching from a petrol or diesel engine to an electric vehicle might seem like a daunting experience. There are many questions, from charging times and running costs to car safety and overall speed. However, the SsangYong Korando e-Motion offers all the practicality of an SUV and is perfect for first-time EV drivers, helping them to reduce their carbon emissions without sacrificing style.
So here are five reasons you should go all-electric with the e-Motion.
Cheap to run
Electricity is significantly cheaper than petrol or diesel, which means that the cost of your journeys and the cost per mile in an electric car can be less than a third of what it would be in a traditional car.
Moreover, electric vehicles do not require yearly or first-year tax, saving you up to £500 over the first three years of ownership in comparison to petrol or diesel vehicles of similar size.
Clean Air Zone and ULEZ compliant.
Another money saver for EVs is that they can travel for free in the UK’s Clean Air Zones and are exempt from the Congestion Charge until 2025. Like all SsangYong Motor models, they also comply with current ULEZ emissions standards thanks to investment in Euro 6-compliant diesel engines.
Therefore, e-Motion owners can enjoy all the benefits of driving without incurring daily charges (if you pardon the pun) on the road.
Electric vehicles have no tailpipe which means no exhaust emissions, helping to improve air quality in in urban areas and inner cities.
Research found that carbon emissions are 17-30% lower than petrol or diesel cars, providing a greener, more environmentally beneficial alternative.
Charge at home and on the go
Buying fuel for your car isn’t only expensive but can be inconvenient and time-consuming. So how nice would it be waking up to a ‘full tank’ every morning? With the e-Motion, you only need to plug in when you get home, and your car takes care of the rest.
If you need to recharge your electric vehicle while you are out and about, don't worry. There are over 49,000 charging points available at 29,000 different locations all over the UK. The good news is that it doesn't take long to recharge your vehicle either.
With a 100-kW rapid charger, you can go from 20% to 80% charge in just 33 minutes. That's the perfect time to grab a coffee or a quick bite to eat while you wait for your vehicle to charge.
By their very definition, electric vehicles have no engine, and therefore no thermodynamics. As a result, the battery’s electromagnetics does not result in noise emissions, so electric cars are incredibly quiet. And paired with the e-Motion’s roomy and intuitive cockpit, it makes for a very relaxing ride.
Driving is a breeze too, thanks to electric motors that produce maximum torque at all revs. That means you get maximum power without having to rev through the gears, so acceleration is instant and neither speed nor power is compromised.
