Cearbhall Ó Síocháin of Radio na Gaeltachta talks diesel and looks at its future. He also takes a trip in a hybrid car to see to experience an alternative to conventional engines. 


He also asks about the second-hand car market and hears what options are available in terms of electric alternatives.

And he meets Iseult Ní Chléirigh, owner of a Nissan Leaf, to find out why she dipped her toe into the electric market. She says her choice was down to both environmental and financial reasons. Iseult says she saves between €3000-4000 every year by opting for electric, taking into account insurance, tax, fuel, and services. 

When Cearbhall asked Iseult Ní Chléirigh, owner of a Nissan Leaf why she initially dipped her toe into the electric market, she said her choice was due to both environmental and financial reasons. Iseult says she saves between €3000-4000 every year by buying electric overall, considering insurance, tax, fuel and services.
