Lookers Electric Charge | The BEN Automotive Challenge 2018

To raise money for the automotive charity, Ben, we’re aiming to travel across the UK and Ireland, visiting each and every Lookers dealership, using only electric cars.

  • 8000 employees
  • 2000 miles
  • 31 brands
  • 1 fundraising goal


We want The Lookers Electric Charge to:


- Raise money for Ben
- Raise awareness of Ben
- Raise awareness of electric vehicles

Ben is a charity which works with the automotive industry to provide support to its people and their families, be it financial, physical, mental or social support. Last year, the charity helped over 3,000 people in the automotive industry and this year, we’re going to help them have an impact on even more! Read more about the charity and the people they help on their website here.

Follow our progress on social media at @LookersGroup and #LookersEC4BEN.

We’ll have our company mascot, Lucky, along for the journey and he’ll be helping us collect donations in our ‘Lucky Bank.’

There will also be a Lucky storybook, Lucky and the Electric Charge, coming to a dealership near you for children to learn all about electric, plug-in and hybrid vehicles as well as the environment.

We’ll be having some fun, sharing blogs, videos and even some ‘carpool karaokes’ from our journeys, all in aid of Ben.

Electric Vehicle FAQs

What are the average running costs of an electric car?

Close

The cost of running an electric car per mile depends on how much it costs to charge and the distance it can travel before requiring charging again (its range). In general, the running costs are much lower than traditional petrol or diesel options with average maintenance fees of about £99 a year. Any significant problems should be covered by the warranty.

The cost of charging your car overnight to deliver approximately 100 miles of driving is about £4 depending on your electricity tariff. To go the same distance in a petrol car would typically cost £15.


How long does it take to charge an electric car?

Close

The time it takes to charge an electric car depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point. It could take as little as 30 minutes for some models or up to 12 hours for others.

A typical electric car (Nissan LEAF 30kWh) takes 4 hours to charge from empty with a 7kW home charging point. A rapid charger at a motorway service station can fully charge your car in about 30 minutes which makes it ideal for long distance journeys.

You can also ‘top up’ charge your car at various car parks, workplaces and service stations to get you from A to B. Depending on your journey, it doesn’t always need to be fully charged, just like a petrol or diesel engine doesn’t always need to be full.


How many charging stations are across the UK?

Close

There are over 13,000 public charging points across the UK.


How can I install a home charging point for my electric car?

Close

With a government grant, home-charging points cost about £400 to install, while several manufacturers provide them as part of the sales package.


What are the main benefits of driving an electric car?

Close
  • Electric cars less than £40,000 have a zero rate of Vehicle Excise Duty.
  • Plug-in cars emitting less than 75g/km CO2 are exempt from the London Congestion Charge. A regular user of this zone could be saving over £2,000 a year.
  • Free parking available for electric cars in some urban areas.
  • A full charge (100 miles) of an electric vehicle costs approximately four times less than travelling 100 miles in a traditional petrol or diesel car.[2]
