Electric car auctions - get in touch with the experts

Welcome to Aston Barclay – the UK’s leading independent car auctions company, with years of experience in EV auctions in the UK.

Electric Vehicles

The automotive industry is undergoing a transformation, and the shift to electric vehicles is a major driving force behind this change. As consumers become more environmentally conscious, there is a growing demand for cleaner, more sustainable modes of transportation.

For car dealerships, this shift represents both a challenge and an opportunity. On one hand, traditional combustion engine vehicles will gradually become less popular, meaning dealerships will need to adapt their business models to meet the changing market demands. On the other hand, the rise of electric vehicles provides car dealerships with a chance to diversify their inventory and appeal to a new generation of eco-conscious consumers.

The benefits of electric vehicles for car dealerships are many. First and foremost, these vehicles produce lower emissions than their fossil fuel-powered counterparts, which is a major selling point for consumers who are concerned about the environment. Additionally, electric vehicles require less maintenance than traditional vehicles, reducing dealership service costs and increasing customer satisfaction.

Overall, the transition to electric vehicles is an exciting development for car dealerships and one that presents both challenges and opportunities. By embracing this shift and adapting to the changing market demands, car dealerships can position themselves for success in a rapidly evolving industry.

Benefits to owning EVs

 Environmental friendliness: EVs produce zero emissions, which makes them an excellent choice for those who are concerned about the environment. By driving an EV, you are helping to reduce air pollution and combat climate change.

  1. Lower operating costs: EVs have lower operating costs than traditional fossil-fuel-powered vehicles. Electricity is generally cheaper than petrol, and EVs require less maintenance since they have fewer moving parts.

  2. Quieter ride: EVs are much quieter than traditional vehicles, which can make for a more pleasant and peaceful driving experience.

  3. Incentives and rebates: While a lot of the original incentives are now over, there are now a wealth of other reasons to own EVs - especially around specialist energy tarrifs that now exist to help owners charge their vehicles at home.

  4. Better performance: EVs have instant torque, which means that they can accelerate quickly and smoothly. They also have a lower center of gravity, which makes them more stable and easier to handle.

  5. Energy independence: EVs can be powered by renewable energy sources, which means that you can become more energy independent and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels.

  6. Reduced dependence on foreign oil: Since EVs do not require petrol, they can help to reduce a country's dependence on foreign oil.

  7. Convenience: EVs can be charged at home or at public charging stations, which makes them more convenient to own than traditional vehicles that require trips to the gas station.
