The government in the UK is looking for families to participate in trials of electric cars. The drivers have to trade their petrol car for an all-electric model, which could be a big issue for some. Electric cars simply don't have the range many drivers need.

In addition to less greenhouse gasses emitted, the electric car drivers will also get less driving expenses thanks to not having to use petrol. Drivers will also get discounts on congestion charges.

The trial will involve up to 100 electric cars and will start next year in cities across the country. It's not clear, if the government will be providing the electric vehicles or if the drivers need to bring their own wheels to the trial.
