EV charging costs vary from model to model as different battery sizes affect how much energy is used. Expect a cost per charge at home to cost around £5 for an EV, and less than £2 for a PHEV.
The cost of a charger (and installation) varies, depending on the unit’s features and where the charger’s installed. At WePowerYourCar, we give you a competitive fixed price for this.
You can get £350 towards the purchase and installation of your home charger with an OLEV grant. Once installed, you only pay for the electricity you use to charge.
When it comes to running costs, the typical electricity rate in the UK is about 14p per kWh. With Economy 7 tariffs, the typical overnight electricity rate in the UK drops to 8p per kWh. With most chargers letting you schedule your charge times, it’s easy to take advantage of these cheaper electricity tariffs at night.
