On their website, the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) provide an example demonstrating that weekly fuel savings of £100 can be achieved by drivers switching from a diesel vehicle to an LEVC Zero Emission Capable vehicle. 

LEVC’s calculation assumes that a driver works five days a week, driving 120 miles per day. Full details of the assumptions used in their calculation can be found here: https://www.levc.com/tx-cost-comparison/ 

Individual drivers can visit the LEVC website and calculate estimated fuel savings based on their own circumstances.
