The Benefits of Owning a Used Electric Car
By going electric, not only are you benefiting the environment, but you are also benefiting your wallet. You'll be saving on fuel, Road Tax and, in some cases, you'll benefit from free parking.
The price of a new electric car can put many people off, and therefore, opting for a used EV will offer many drivers a more affordable way to make the switch. All of our used vehicles undergo extensive checks, including full HPI checks, to ensure they are up to standard, giving you peace of mind that you're getting a great car for great value for money.
What's an Electric Car Like to Drive?
An EV features an electric battery, rather than an internal combustion engine, meaning that every journey you venture on will release zero emissions into the environment. With no gear box, the ride is a lot smoother and quieter in an electric vehicle.
Instead of pulling up at a petrol station to fill up with fuel, you'll plug your EV into a charging point to recharge the battery. This can be done at home or whilst you're on the road... the average time to recharge your battery back up to 80% is about the same time as grabbing a coffee from the service station!
We stock a range of used electric vehicles at Bristol Street Motors, including the Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Kona, giving you the chance to find the right EV for your lifestyle. Whether you're looking for good range, stand-out style or certain technology features, you'll be able to find the EV that ticks the boxes for you.

What to Look for When Buying a Used Electric Car
When you're browsing our range of used electric vehicles, there are a couple of things that you should look out for.
Firstly, depending on your lifestyle depends on the range you would look for. A car with a smaller range than other EVs won't be ideal if you tend to carry out long journeys on a regular basis, but will be great to tackle daily commutes and every day, urban driving. So, you need to work out on average how many miles, on average, you rack up to make sure you pick the right electric car with the most appropriate range.
Another factor to consider is the mileage and age of the electric vehicle. The reason this is important is because lithium-ion batteries have a life span of up to ten years, so you want to make sure you will get the most out of your used EV.
Finally, it's always a good idea to check a car's safety rating. The Euro NCAP safety test features rigorous assessments to determine how well vehicles perform in certain crash scenarios, and results are published to allow you access to the full safety report. This will give you peace of mind that your used car is capable of protecting you and your passengers on every journey.
