The Electric car market in the UK grew 21% in 2019 with more than 72,000 new plug-in cars registered.

One new electric car was registered every seven minutes in the UK last year.

End-of-year figures show the eighth consecutive year of growth for the plug-in car market.

Electric cars saw significant growth, with numbers of registrations up 144% year-on-year.

There are over 20,000 EV charging points across the UK.

As EVs become more popular there are a wide variety of benefits for drivers making the switch. Not just the environmental impact but also the savings you make on fuel, tax and servicing costs.

On a cost per mile basis your LUKA could cost you 75% less than a traditional petrol or diesel car. It is an excellent investment for drivers looking for a cheaper, more efficient way to drive. We estimate your cost to be less than 3 pence per mile, it will cost even less if you use this link below.

Their EV night rate is just 5 pence per Kw!

They give you £50 FREE credit to start with too.

Cheaper to maintain

While the price of a LUKA may be similar to many comparable petrol or diesel cars, the cost of running is significantly lower.  Look at the enhanced fuel efficiency, the low cost of electricity and reduced maintenance requirements; you will spend far less on a LUKA electric vehicle than you do on your current car.

LUKA is designed to be as efficient as possible with just 3 main components; the on-board charger, inverter and motor. This means there is far less wear and tear on the car and little stress on the motor, there are fewer moving parts susceptible to damage.

All this means you’ll rarely have to have your LUKA serviced and the running and repair costs are minimal.

Better for the environment, better for you.

Luka has zero tailpipe emissions making it greener, cleaner and better for the environment than petrol or diesel cars. Fewer emissions mean reduced greenhouse gasses, enabling the UK to move towards sustainable, renewable sources of electricity.

Fast, easy and cheap home charging

Charging your LUKA at home is cost efficient, simple and easy. Charge by plugging into your household 13-amp socket when you’ve parked. It’s as easy as charging your mobile phone.

The future of driving is LUKA.

There has never been a better time to own a LUKA EV, Oh yes, driving LUKA EV is serious fun, the future really is closer than you think.

SPARTAN – Simple, Practical, Reliable.

SPARTAN is a passionate adventurer. Nurtured by generations of owners able to travel to unexplored corners of the Earth.

SPARTAN production began in 1972, with decades of previous active Military service.

SPARTAN has gained a reputation of an industrious and uncompromising fighter in tough driving conditions.

The original Spartan reached legendary status, thanks to its reliability and impressive off-road capability.

STEERING

A tough and reliable extended-lifetime mechanism withstands extreme loads.

AXLES

Front and rear drive shafts with universal joints

connect the axle differentials ensuring dependable transmission.

FRONT SUSPENSION

Coil spring front suspension guarantees excellent passenger comfort.

An anti-sway bar on the front suspension reduces the body roll of the vehicle and increases the degree of safety.

Rear suspension with three leaf springs provides resistance to extreme loads with good off-road reliability.

BRAKE SYSTEM

A reliable two-piston dual circuit brake system guarantees a stable and high braking force of the unit. Front disc brakes ensure good performance and increased efficiency, both on and off-road.

An electronic brake force distribution system controls the pressure of the wheels on the front and rear axles depending on the vehicle load and prevent them from locking.

Drum brakes are installed on the rear axle. The parking brake, located on the prop-shaft, is protected from exposure to snow and dirt and is easy to maintain.

2H Rear-wheel drive provides fuel savings as 100% torque is transferred to the rear axle only.

FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM

Spartan is able to withstand and conquer any off-road conditions thanks to its selectable four-wheel drive.

With sustained off-road capability, your SPARTAN will not give up even in the most complex situations.

On the road you will experience how confident your SPARTAN drives and reacts.

The front reinforced bumper is equipped with towing hooks; there is a specific, built in location to install a winch.

The rear reinforced bumper has a tow bar, a jacking point and the mounting for the spare wheel.

INTERIOR

The interior is simple and functional, the seat fabric and floor covering can be cleaned with a hosepipe.

All the materials in the cabin are designed for high loads and possess increased strength. There is an abundance of storage space in each door. We use a reliable and simple window opening and locking mechanism.

The high driving position improves vision and raises the level of safety. The front seats have an extra length adjustment range.

The full width, 2 Piece Tailgate is much more convenient than a single large door.

Rear Interior

A spacious thee seat row, for transportation of large-size cargo or equipment the rear seats can be folded down 60/40 or turned into a bed by extending 180°

The number of electric cars on Britain’s roads will jump to 30 million in the next 20 years, helped by government policies to phase out the sale of polluting cars.

The nation’s goal of reaching net-zero emissions by mid-century is looking more achievable under three out of four scenarios modelled by network operator National Grid Plc’s Electricity System Operator unit in a report. Electric vehicles are one key piece as are heat pumps to replace gas boilers.

Emissions from the power sector will be negative by 2033 as renewable generation and carbon capture and storage technology effectively sequesters more CO2 than plants emit, National Grid said. Levels of natural gas burnt without emissions-removing technology will halve by 2038.

It’s important for National Grid to get these predictions right. The government has a legally binding net-zero target and it’s up to industry to make sure that’s technically possible. There are concerns that without adequate planning and grid improvements, plugging in millions of electric cars could cause problems for network operators.

“We see growth in renewable energy generation, including significant expansion in installed offshore wind capacity,” Mark Herring, head of strategy at National Grid ESO. “There is widespread uptake in domestic electric vehicles, and growth and investment in hydrogen and carbon capture technologies too.”

The utility’s electric vehicle prediction is more than the amount forecast by Bloomberg NEF, whose analysts see 17 million EVs on the road in the U.K. in 2040. BNEF doesn’t assume the target of phasing out internal-combustion engines by 2035 is hit.

By 2050, as many as 80% of households with an EV will be smart charging their car when electricity market prices and power demand are lower, National Grid said in the report. About 45% of homes will be able to offer balancing capability to the grid, creating as much as 38 gigawatts of flexible electricity to help manage peaks and troughs in demand.
