    How long does it take to charge an electric car?

    Charging time for your electric car depends on both the model and the charging point being used. With a home charger, it’s recommended to charge the battery overnight. Fast charging points at service stations and supermarkets, meanwhile, can often provide an 80% charge in less than an hour. Speak to our electric car experts to find out more.

    How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

    Charging an electric car is considerably cheaper than the cost of driving a petrol or diesel vehicle. Whereas a combustion engine model costs approximately 12-14p per mile to operate, an electric car comes in at a significantly lower 3-4p per mile.

    How long will battery in the car last?

    Electric vehicle batteries are designed to provide up to 100,000 miles of performance at the very least. Many manufacturers, however, anticipate covering more than 150,000 miles before a replacement is needed.

    Where will I find charging points?

    There are currently more than 30,000 charging points throughout the UK, with locations including service stations, petrol stations, supermarkets and selected workplaces. Most electric vehicles will provide a charging point locator function to help you source the nearest charging point.
