How much does it cost to charge an electric car?
When looking at the average UK electricity price (around 14p per kWh) and assuming an EV will travel 3.5 miles per kWh on average, a 100-mile journey will cost you around £4 – or 4p per mile, compared to the average price of fuel costing 14p per mile.
How long does it take to charge?
Charging time on cars varies by make and model. The Tesla Model 3 is the fastest charging car in the world currently (when charging on ultrafast chargers). If you don’t have a Tesla, typically it takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty to full on a 7kW charging point, but as little as 30 minutes if you’re using a 50kW charger!
How many miles can I drive on a full charge?
The average range of an EV on a full charge is around 181 miles but again this will vary from car to car. The longest range EV car on sale currently is the Tesla Model 2 Long Range which will give you around 375 miles per charge (and will also set you back in excess of £75,000!)
