Wanting to charge your vehicle…

Having an electric vehicle –

Wanting to purchase an EV to driving an electric vehicle is two total different things. You may want one as but you will compare an EV to the vehicle you have now. Whereas, when you have an electric vehicle you look at all the positives it gives you. How it adapts to your lifestyle an you realise the range on the vehicle is great and gets you from to A to B!

Changing from diesel/petrol to electric…

Changing to an electric vehicle from a diesel/petrol vehicle is bizarre and unusual at first. You soon get used to it. It’s pretty much the same. Although, the vehicle is quieter and you  have to charge your vehicle instead. Knowing that you are putting your vehicle on charge instead of filling up is confusing to start with, no ones going to lie but you soon get used to not having to spend as much at a charging station anymore you start to enjoy it! Fuel is quicker to put into your vehicle than power but there are advantages for that as-well…


Let me get to those…

You can’t fuel your car up and have a coffee at the same time. So, knowing your vehicle is charging, you can take a little break to pop to the coffee shop next door. You also get chance to answer phone calls, do work or socialise with other people that are also charging at the same time.


Doesn’t sound that bad after all…

Questions still run through your head although you may have had them answered before. For example; How can the battery not run out after being used for so long? How long will it last without a charge? Well… Soon enough the panic and fear of all those questions disappear. No need to have thoughts of, have I got enough charge to get me to my meeting tomorrow? As you have already have a charging point at home. Charging your EV before you leave will give you a better range of miles to drive. The range of miles your vehicle has get aren’t just to get you to town an back, honestly a EV will get you further than you think… You have to approach a EV with an open-mind!

Instead of worrying before each journey, why not plan before you start your journey anyway? There are plenty of apps to show where charging stations are on the way to your destination. After a few days to weeks, you will work out when your vehicle will be running low of battery to recharge. Always consider having a backup plan. A plan B, because you never know the chargers you have planned to use could be busy or broken. Precautions have to be taken before every journey. Planning is just to ensure you are 100% confident driving those miles in one day.

Making the EV switch is something a lot of people consider but never actually do. Saying you will do it next week and to actually doing it and taking the risk is obviously two different things. People are worried about making the EV switch, why? Are they a lot of money to buy to start with?



Looking at the overall cost that your EV will cost you it will sum up paying all the money at the start is worth it. But not for everyone… The majority of the money saved from making the EV switch could be used on a extra holiday a year, what do you think about that? Why not find out if making the EV switch will save you money?

We also have a FAQ page. If you have questions they may have been answered on here –


Here are some relevant questions regarding this blog –

How does the device work?

The CleanCar device (we must find a catchier name, send ideas to is an incredibly smart piece of kit, but for this FAQ, we will keep it simple.

  • The CleanCar device has been designed to record GPS coordinates of your location while you are driving
  • It will do this every 10 seconds or 100 metres or 25-degree change in direction so on a winding road it takes more coordinates and on a straight one less.
  • The device saves these coordinates and every few minutes it connects to the mobile network via an on board sim and uploads these to the CleanCar portal. It will store around ten days of driving if for any reason there is no signal.
  • Once we receive the data, we store it up, and while most people are asleep in the early morning, our servers and algorithms convert it into journeys and statistics.
  • The following day you will be able to log in see your stats.
  • CleanCar aims to help users like you to make the switch from your internal combustion engine to an electric vehicle

How do I install the GPS device?

It is essential that the GPS device is located in a 12V in the front console of the vehicle. This is so that it can receive signals from the global navigation satellite system. Also, if you can see it and it falls out you will notice. If you place it in a glove box or the boot of the car, you may not notice if the device has become dislodged.

Who can see your journeys?

Short answer, only you. Only drivers can see their journeys with the journey detail hidden from your manager, your colleagues or your employer. There is no way for anyone to look at your business or personal trips.  CleanCar is not designed to track what you do but is a system that will use journey data to show your suitability to an electric vehicle. We will never share your journey details with anyone unless you give us explicit permission to do so.
