When the Nissan Leaf became the world’s first mass-produced electric car in 2011, there weren’t many pure EVs (electric vehicles) around and what was available was pretty rubbish (Mitsubishi i-MiEV anyone?).
Fast forward a few years and the novelty has all but worn off. That’s not a bad thing – in fact, it’s great that so many electric and plug-in cars now feature on UK roads.
Part of this is down to a boom in the number of different electric cars now on general sale.
