Yes, you do. But the cost is much less than you were previously paying for Petrol. We'd recommend that you check your home electricity tariff, and consider switching to one which gives cheaper off-peak rates for charging your electric vehicle overnight. Public chargers vary in cost, but still the cost is less per mile than Petrol.
This is depending on many factors such as vehicle charging capabilities and charging port output. Most Ev's fully charge overnight, which is amazing if you're charging you vehicle at home. A public rapid charging port can charge most EV's from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes.
You can charge your electric car in the comfort of your own home if you have a electric wallbox charger. If you are on the go, you can use the numerous electric charging points all around the UK. In the UK there are more than 30,000 public charge point connectors at over 12,000 locations which allows you to charge your vehicle quickly on the go and these numbers go up every year!
A single charge range of a EV is dependant on the make and model. Alot of the modern EV's have a range that suits most people's daily journeys comfortably. Most EV's have rapid charging which means that you can charge your car quickly to keep you on the go.
Great news! EV's have a lower maintenance cost. This is due to EV's usual car parts like a gearbox, clutch, starter motor, exhaust and more. With EV's having regenerative braking, the brakes have less wear and tear which increases the time until they need to be changed.
Yes and No! You can be towed if you have run out of charge or broken down but this isnt advised due to the battery and motor could be damaged, reducing its lifespan. On the subject of towing in a EV, only some makes and models such as the Nissan ARIYA have this capability but this may change in the future.
