Clean Air Day falls on June 21st, the longest day of the year, meaning we all have plenty of time to think about the simple things we can do to improve air quality.

How can motorists help reduce air pollution?

  • Keep your tyres inflated to the correct pressure. This maximises fuel efficiency, which helps the planet and your bank balance.
  • Don’t automatically drive everywhere. If you only need to pop to the corner shop, why not walk? Good exercise for you and less pollution for us all.
  • Why not think about changing to a hybrid or electric car? There are more and more on the road and the charging point network is expanding.
  • Learn more about the difference between CO2 and NOX pollution.

Sales of electric cars continue to rise with the choice of models continuing to increase. From the original city-car sized, such as the buzzy little Volkswagen e-Up!

to the very latest, much larger electic cars which have longer ranges and quicker charge times; take the new Jaguar I-PACE for example, it has a range of almost 300 miles, does 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds and charges up to 168 miles of range in an hour using a typical 50kW charger.
