FAQ's

   

When charging your electric car at home, the cost to you will depend on your current energy tariff so it pays to make sure you're on the best deal.

To calculate the cost you could multiply the size of the battery (kWh) in your preferred electric car and multiply this by the electricity cost (pence per kilowatt hour). Some providers also provide special deals to electric car owners like cheaper off-peak electricity.

The length of time it takes to charge an electric car will depend on the size of the battery and the charging method and can be anywhere between 12 hours and 30 minutes.

For example, the Audi e-tron can be fully charged at 11kW per hour in 8.9 hours, while at a 150kW DC charging station it can be charged 100% in just 50 minutes.
Using a home charging point most cars will take several hours to reach 100% charge from empty, but if you charge overnight this shouldn't be an issue.
