## [What’s it like to drive long distances in an electric car on

summer. Is driving there in an EV as stress free? (Picture©James Foxall)

The move to [electric cars](https://blog.greenflag.com/2018/right-time-for-
buying-electric-cars/) is well underway. By 2030 – less than eight years away
– you won’t be able to buy a new petrol or diesel car. Electric vehicles (EVs)
are often said to be great for short journeys, not so brilliant when you need
to charge on the go. So what will it be like to take an electric car on
holiday?

For a glimpse at the future of long journeys, we took an all-electric BMW iX3
on an 1,100-mile round trip to the French Alps this summer.

## **It pays to know your car**

are cutting back on essential servicing to save money (Picture iStock/Gilaxia)

If you’ve taken your car in for mending or a service recently, you might have
noticed that like most things in life, we're seeing repair costs going up.
That’s because four out of five garages (79 per cent) say they’re experiencing
increases in the cost of doing business.

A survey conducted by dispute resolution body The Motor Ombudsman (TMO) asked
independent garages and dealer workshops what their biggest challenges were.
Their answers make illuminating (and slightly depressing) reading for us as
drivers.

Struggling to see the benefit of switching to an electric vehicle? Look no

models according to a new study.

And hybrid cars – which combine petrol engines with electric motors – are even
better at passing their MOT test than EVs. We try to explain this unexpected
bonus to battery-powered motoring.

It's time for the 72-reg plate change. Traditionally, September has been one
of the two months (along with March) when car sales peak. And the more new
cars sold, the more used models are freed up for buyers to get their hands on.

But since the dark days of the pandemic, the [supply of new
cars](https://blog.greenflag.com/2021/computer-chips-shortage/) has slowed
dramatically. The knock-on is a shortage of used cars with the models that are
available costing more. We look at how to get a good buy for the 72-reg plate
change.

If you’ve been hit with an unexpected fine for speeding, driving in a bus
lane, parking or not paying a congestion or emissions zone charge you may have
unwittingly become a victim of car cloning.

New research shows an alarming increase in fines issued by Transport for
London (TfL) to cars with altered identities. The number overturned because
they were given to cloned cars was up nearly nine times between April 2021 and
April 2022.

We look at what cloning is and what to do if you suspect your car has been a
victim of it.

We’re seeing a seismic shift in motoring with the wholesale switch to
[electric vehicles (EVs)](https://blog.greenflag.com/2020/the-electric-
revolution-is-coming/). Not only are some EVs a bit different to look at,
there’s a whole new language around them. I thought it would be helpful to
explain some of the electric vehicle terms we’ll need to use.

If you’ve been hit with an unexpected fine for speeding, driving in a bus
lane, parking or not paying a congestion or emissions zone charge you may have
unwittingly become a victim of car cloning.

New research shows an alarming increase in fines issued by Transport for
London (TfL) to cars with altered identities. The number overturned because
they were given to cloned cars was up nearly nine times between April 2021 and
April 2022.

We look at what cloning is and what to do if you suspect your car has been a
victim of it.

We’re seeing a seismic shift in motoring with the wholesale switch to
[electric vehicles (EVs)](https://blog.greenflag.com/2020/the-electric-
revolution-is-coming/). Not only are some EVs a bit different to look at,
there’s a whole new language around them. I thought it would be helpful to
explain some of the electric vehicle terms we’ll need to use.
