FREQUENT ASK QUESTIONS (FAQ) FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES
An electric vehicle runs on completely electricity. EV’s have a electric motor so there
is no engine, which means it does not require petrol or diesel. With them running on
electric you are able to charge at home or at an electric car charging point.
Most new EV’s have a range of around 150 miles, although some can go up to 300 miles on
one charge. While up coming EVs according to some EV manufacturers will have a range
that is from 350 miles to 750 miles on a charge. The battery technologies are improving.
The cost of running an electric car is very low compared to the equivalent internal
combustion engine (ICE). This is a real-life example; Driving a Kia e-Niro using
250kW monthly which will cost you approximately (250kW x 0.31per kW) £77.50
monthly. If you then drive an equivalent ICE vehicle for the same miles monthly, it
will cost approximately £240. In a year, you save approximately £1,950 by using an
In addition, there’s also no congestion charge with an EV. As well as no road tax,
lower maintenance costs (due to far fewer moving parts) and lots of priority parking

Fully electric cars have zero tailpipe emissions making them greener, cleaner and
better for the environment than petrol or diesel cars.
Charging your EV at home is cost efficient, easy and fast. Once installed, you will
be able to charge your EV by plugging in the charging cable. It is as easy as
charging your mobile phone. Using a 7kW home charging point, most EVs can
charge to full capacity in around 5 – 8 hours. Rapid chargers can charge most
cars to 80% in 30 – 45 minutes.
