Charging an electric car

How do I charge an electric car?

From how long it takes to how much it costs; we cover all you need to know.

How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

This varies depending on where you charge – a motorway service station is going to cost considerably more than charging off-peak at home. Still, for many motorists, it’s all much less than a tank of petrol – but it’s best to find out more about the costs before deciding on a specific model.

Electric car range

This is usually measured in miles or kilometers, and is the distance a car can travel on full charge without needing to recharge. Like a petrol car’s miles per gallon calculation, electric car range will vary depending on driving style, road scenario and the day’s temperatures.

Similar to fuel consumption, if you drive more efficiently, use fewer optional features like air con and heating; and avoid heavy acceleration, you’ll improve your range - just like miles per gallon in a petrol/diesel car.

Did you know?

EV technology is older than you think! Toyota released the Prius - the world's first hybrid electric car - back in 1997
