There are obviously many factors that go into determining how much it costs to charge an electric car but it’s good to have a starting point when weighing up whether or not you should purchase one, so this is what this blog post will aim to answer!
A General Idea…
Using one of our home EV chargers you can expect an average overnight electricity rate of 13 pence per kWh, so if we take that figure to charge a 30kWh vehicle, A Nissan LEAF in this example, this will cost you roughly £3.64 and give you about 115 miles of range. Not bad!
Even better, you can use a free charging point across the UK which are detailed in a previous blog post here
To get a more specific idea of costs it’s handy to use a calculator such as the one available here or simply do as stated above and times you pence per kWh by kWh battery capacity of your vehicle.
