While many of us are considering buying an electric car powered solely by a battery, so far only a relatively small percentage of motorists have made the switch. Some compromise by buying hybrids - either plug in models, the newest versions of which can drive for around thirty to forty miles on a single charge or more commonly they opt for self charging vehicles. But the mix of these so called alternatively fuelled cars is changing. Dave Sheeran, Managing Director of Donnelly Group, Northern Ireland’s biggest family owned motor retailer shared his analysis of the factors transforming the buying habits of local drivers. He predicts that pure electric cars are set to become more popular, in due course overtaking plug in hybrid electric vehicles. He also argues that in the future hydrogen powered motors will play a role in the market for zero emission vehicles.
