More Than Insurance Sees Eco Friendly Motoring On The Rise
According to data provided by More Than Insurance there are a large number of UK car drivers who would consider swapping their car for something more eco friendly.
If the hybrid cars were cheaper to run than normal cars then a large majority of car owners would seriously consider changing to them.

The rising cost of petrol will certainly help the take up of hybrid vehicles, with almost three quarters of those taking part in the More Than Insurance survey being very concerned about fuel prices.
