About Green Cars
It’s easy to make mistakes when you’re driving, as it’s such a complicated process.
We are currently undergoing a green revolution in the auto industry, with more and more motorists making the switch to eco-friendly automobiles from petrol and diesel. This is reflected in the startling sales figures, with diesel falling by a third in October and Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles (AFVs) rising by 36.9%.
The UK government is working hard alongside car manufacturers to increase the number of electric-powered vehicles on the road. In a bid to lower carbon emissions and decrease the effect fossil fuels are having on the environment, they’re offering great incentives for drivers to make the switch to a greener car.
Technology is everywhere, in fact a vast majority of the population now carries around powerful computers in their pockets in the form of smartphones.

The Government’s announcement of a plan to ban the sale of all diesel and petrol cars by 2040 has created quite a stir in the motor industry. This plan is in a bid to tackle air pollution and is part of a much wider scheme to make the UK more eco-conscious.
It was not so long ago that you had a simple choice in life: you could be environmentally responsible or you could drive a ‘Chelsea Tractor’. Even ten years back, the thought of choosing a 4×4, or SUV, as our American cousins are gradually teaching us to say, and at the same time having a care for your car’s green credentials would have resulted in laughter and derision.
The UK (and many other countries) are currently undergoing an enormous shift in the public approach to being eco-conscious. There has been rapid growth in environmentally friendly cars on the roads and this reflects a change in mindset.
Almost every car manufacturer now offers a range of green vehicles, from a fully electric option to hybrids.

As renewable energy technology develops, the country is seeing a significant shift towards renewable technology as well as a change in public habits. In this article we look at three ways the UK is fighting climate change.
