Nearly 47% of all cars sold in Norway are electric, is this the future for the UK?

As part of the EV Round Table Discussion recently held in Paris, it was announced that Norway currently sells enough electric vehicles to make up 46.7% of all vehicles sold, with only 21% being diesel.

There’s clearly a shift towards EVs and the environmental and financial benefits surrounding them; The Guardian has reported that electric vehicles are already cheaper to run than a petrol or diesel.

EV charging can be done at home, work, in town when shopping and on-the-go due to regenerative braking. Additionally, charging points are popping up at more locations monthly and even oil giant Shell is beginning its rollout of charging points on filling station forecourts.

It's not all about the technicalities of owning an electric car, the performance compared to petrol and diesel cars, especially on all Tesla models, is astonishing. Electric cars offer instant acceleration and torque, meaning they can outrun normal 'fast' cars.

So, whether you’re thinking of buying or have taken delivery of a Renault Zoe, Nissan Leaf, a Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3 or perhaps an electric supercar, like the Rimac that was recently announced, we can help you with your car care and detailing needs.

Clean + Shiny Detailing, our service arm, is based in Hampshire, UK and is able to perform car paint correction and protection, which can last for up to 9 years. We also offer interior and glass protection.

Why do I need my new car detailed and protected?

Even though your car may be brand new, it’s likely that your paint will have suffered some stress during transportation from the factory to wherever the vehicle was delivered to in order for you to collect it.  This ranges from environmental fallout, road grime as well as ‘love marks’ where it may have been prepared for collection.

Car detailing essentially removes these paint defects, in a controlled environment with specialist lighting - detailing will make your car look like you’ve never seen it before.

Paint protection, whether in sealant, ceramic coating or Paint Protection Film (PPF) form, will seal in that new look for up to 9 years, protecting your investment from the elements, bird droppings, road grime and future washing.

Can you help me with my car?

Yes! Our new car detailing services include a full decontamination wash, removal of any paint defects and then the choice of a polymer paint sealant, ceramic coating, PPF installation or a combination of these choices. As mentioned above, these coatings and PPF will further protect all painted surfaces from the elements as well as future washing; incorrect wash techniques can harm your paintwork, so we’ll also provide tips and tricks so you can get your car clean safely. Our retail space allows us to introduce you to the correct products to use when washing your vehicle.

Your wheels will be cleaned with the option of having a wheel-specific ceramic coating installed, which will make them repellent to brake dust, allowing easy cleaning.

The interior and glass of your new car can also be treated - upholstery becomes water and stain resistant and glass becomes water repellent, which helps when driving during wet weather.

Let us help you give your new electric car the very best start in life.
