Aside from the environmental benefits, a major attraction of electric motoring is its low running cost. While the cars can be more expensive to buy than petrol or diesel models, powering them is usually much more affordable. However, respondents to the Cazoo survey weren’t clear how much it would actually cost to charge an electric car, with more than half (53%) suggesting it would be more than £20.
The cost will vary depending on where and when you charge, and public charging will cost more than topping up overnight at home using an off-peak electricity tariff. But calculations by charging provider Pod Point suggests that the average cost of a full charge at home was just £15.10.
And the cost of the cars? Well, it’s true that in general, electric cars usually cost more to buy, but perhaps not as much as you might think. Check out the great-value electric cars for sale at Cazoo and you might be pleasantly surprised.
