Electric and hybrid cars are becoming more popular each year, as people become more environmentally conscious and seek to reduce their carbon footprints. While gasoline-powered European cars are still the most popular choice for most drivers, electric and hybrid vehicles offer a number of advantages that may make them a better choice for some drivers.

We are experts in servicing all types of European cars, electric and hybrid vehicles included. We have the latest diagnostic equipment and tools necessary to properly service your electric or hybrid car, and we only use high-quality parts and fluids in our repairs.
So, what are the pros and cons of purchasing an electric or hybrid European car? Here are a few things to consider.
The Advantages of Electric Cars:
1) Low running costs – Electric cars are cheaper to run than gasoline cars, since you only need to charge them up rather than buying/refilling fuel. This can save you a lot of money over time.
2) Reduced emissions – Electric cars produce far lower emissions than gasoline cars, which is great for the environment.
3) Quiet operation – Electric cars are much quieter than gasoline cars, which can be a plus for those who live in urban areas.
4) Increased range – Thanks to advancements in technology, electric cars now have much greater ranges than they did in the past. This means you can travel further without having to recharge.
The Disadvantages of Electric Cars:
1) Higher initial cost – Electric cars typically cost more than gasoline cars upfront, although this cost can be offset by lower running costs over time.
2) Limited charging infrastructure – At present, there is not as large a charging infrastructure for electric cars as there is for gasoline cars. This can make long distance travel tricky at times. However, this infrastructure is growing rapidly and should continue to do so in the years ahead.
3) Reduced range – Because of the issue with infrastructure, long trips can be difficult to pull off, out of fear of charging issues– especially if the vehicle is dealing with weight that inordinately drains the power.
Offsetting all of these points is the reality: European cars are changing to Electric Vehicles faster than in the U.S., and sooner or later, your options for European combustion vehicles will be very slim or nonexistent, as higher tariffs will likely keep combustion engines out of reach for most American consumers.
