In light of recent events due to coronavirus (COVID-19) the general public have been advised to avoid public transport where possible. In response to the on-going outbreak, EVision are remaining open. We and have been taking all appropriate measures to ensure the well-being and safety of our customers and staff. 

How can you avoid public transport in major cities?

Avoiding public transport can be difficult for some and especially those in major cities such as central London. In these locations a large portion of the public rely on buses, trains and tubes. However, as more people refrain from using public transport and start to use other means, we would like to advise our clients about our electric vehicles. 

ULEZ Zone Sign

As our entire fleet is fully-electric, they all benefit from no London Congestion Charge or Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charge. This can be handy to know for those who live and work in these zones. If you frequently travel in either of these areas you will know that the fee can rack up very quickly. That is where an electric car rental from EVision can offer you significant savings. Especially if you are still working as normal in your office and are trying to avoid public transport where possible. An electric car rental is an option to seriously consider. 

Why take an electric car rental?

During this difficult time it is hard to carry on general day to day life without the worry of COVID-19. An electric car rental can help you be safe in the knowledge that driving an EV is less likely to cause the spread of the virus as you are avoiding large crowds and public transport.

Here at EVision we offer a vast range of pure electric vehicles for everyone. Ranging from nippy BMW i3’s to luxurious Tesla Model 3 Long Ranges. Not to mention that we also offer delivery and collection services directly to you. Meaning that you don’t need to use public transport or make any unnecessary journeys. 

Tesla HEPA filter

In addition, all of EVision’s Tesla vehicles have HEPA filtration systems which are capable of stripping the outside air of pollen, bacteria, and pollution before they enter the cabin. This systematically cleans the air inside the cabin to eliminate any trace of these particles. 

The overall result is a filtration system that is more efficient than standard automotive filters. This ensures that all occupants receive the best possible air quality. Regardless of what is happening in the environment around them.

Running costs

As the UK government starts to slowly go into lock down, financial constraints begin to become a significant worry for employers and employees alike. 

An electric car rental can save you or your company a large sum of money when it comes to fuel costs. This is due to electricity being universally cheaper than fossil fuels. Meaning that a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle will cost you more to run. Especially if you are travelling in the zones mentioned above. Keep in mind that another perk to driving an EV is that many places offer free charging as well as free parking. 

If you are looking to take an electric car rental of a Tesla, you will be able to take advantage of free Tesla Supercharging across the UK. Which will save you a few extra pounds in your wallet.
