If you’re new to the EV game and find yourself asking ‘What is an electric car?’, don’t be shy. TG explains all…

If you’re on the hunt for a new car (or even a used one, come to think of it) for the first time in a blue moon, it won’t have escaped your attention that electric cars are now everywhere.

Not least because the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles is set to be outlawed in 2030. Even hybrids – which mix engines with electric power – will be banned by 2035.
