Brits would rather pay to rent an electric car than go on a luxury holiday!

Rent an electric car

Brits focus is changing as the pandemic makes people re-evaluate their lifestyle. In a recent poll commissioned by Bulb Energy, which asked members of the British public to rate what they aspire to, over 22% said they would rather rent an electric car than go on a luxury holiday, buy a hot tub or own expensive jewellery. Of those asked, 62% said that being environmentally conscious is more important than having materialistic things.

With news on climate change looking bleak, the general public is concerned about global temperatures rising at a level which isn’t sustainable for the environment to be able to survive.


The coronavirus pandemic is turning more people into environmentally-conscious consumers. Research and reports are showing that coronavirus has focused our mindset on helping create a better, healthier world.

As the British public transitions to a sense of normality, there are still those concerned over the use of public transport or car sharing. However, pressures are still real for businesses and employees looking to reduce their carbon footprint. This is where electric vehicles are playing a vital role in the transition to net zero. This is where EVision can help!


EVision Electric Vehicles, the UK’s first and largest all-electric vehicle rental company has seen exponential growth since the pandemic started. The company has had to increase its fleet by 60% as demand for electric vehicle adoption has magnified.

Speaking of EVision’s success, Transport Manager Drew Sherston said, “As people’s attitudes change, demand grows, which means greater availability of electric vehicles. Couple this with government support and the development of the UK charging point infrastructure, and you will see an incredible shift in the number of EVs on the roads. It was always going to happen; it’s just happening at a much quicker rate than anticipated. Fortunately, EVision is ready for those looking to make the switch.”
