Driving Change

With climate change at the forefront of everyone’s minds, more and more people are making the switch to an electric vehicle. The future of driving is, without doubt, electric and the range of options available continues to grow - meaning better performance and better value.

Here at the Birchwood Group, we are proud to offer a variety of new electric and hybrid vehicles from our Ford, Kia, Mitsubishi and ŠKODA dealerships and, of course, the rise in new electric vehicles also means that we have a flourishing line-up of pre-owned cars from some of the best names around.

You may be asking what the benefits are of driving an electric vehicle. Governments around the globe are aware of the need to cut CO2 emissions, driving a model that emits zero will play a big part in improving air quality and health. The low cost of running an electric vehicle is also very appealing. Did you know that opting for an electric car means reducing your motoring costs from approximately 12-14p per mile to just 3-4p per mile? And not to forget, fewer components are also cheaper to maintain - an electric car has no traditional engine, there are fewer issues that can arise, meaning more affordable maintenance costs.​

At Birchwood Kia Washington, we recently had the exciting opportunity to reveal Kia’s brand new all-electric vehicle, the EV6, ahead of its official global launch. Redefining the electric experience as a viable option for day-to-day mobility, with inspiring design, breath-taking performance and innovative space, the EV6 brings impressive long-range, ultra-fast charging and zero-emissions power, reducing the environmental impact without compromising convenience.

Earlier this year, we also had the honour of being chosen by Ford of Britain to be one of the first to premiere the all-new Mustang Mach-E, their first all-electric SUV. Offering everything from advanced driver assistance technologies, to next level connectivity features, and captivating design details, the Mustang Mach-E has been designed, inside and out, to deliver an effortlessly enjoyable driving experience centered around you.
