The beginnings of electric cars

At the beginning of the motoring era, over 100 years ago, there were experiments with electric cars. Ultimately, they had to fly because of poor performance compared to combustion engines. At the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries there was a small revolution related to the development of stronger and lighter than previously lithium-ion batteries.

Tesla car service in UK

The Tesla Company

American automotive concern founded in 2003 in California. The company deals in the production of fully independent electric cars. The first Tesla model was the sporty Roadster, launched in 2008.
The company wanted to do a small market testing, a small step to check the recipients and convince them that an electric car can be fast, safe, beautiful ... and expensive.
Because the people from Tesla did not have the production capacity, and wanted to test the market, instead of building a car from scratch, they used the Lotus model, in which the exhaust gas systems were replaced by electric ones. Currently, the brand offers three variants of cars: Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X and Tesla Model 3. All with electric drive.

Tesla in Great Britain

Starting the deliveries of Tesla Model 3 to Great Britain meant that the car quickly jumped into monthly sales statistics. As reported by The Guardian, in August 2019 the Tesla Model 3 was the third best-selling passenger car in general. It lost with only one Ford and one Volkswagen. New owners registered 2,082 Tesla Model 3 cars in August, according to data published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The figures meant Model 3 registrations overtook popular cars including the Ford Focus, the Vauxhall Corsa and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in August. Only the Ford Fiesta and the Volkswagen Golf sold more during the month.

Electric vehicles remain the property of a small minority of British car owners, accounting for only 1.1% of total car sales this year. However, sales of electric vehicles with batteries have almost doubled in the last 12 months, from just over 9,000 in 2018 to 17,333 this year.
