Can I charge at home and do you have a big electricity bill?
Yes with a three pin socket or installed fast charger.
The cost for charging at home is very economical as shown below.
If your home charger is 7kW and you are charging a 40kWh battery it will take approximately 5.7hrs adding up to 235 miles (assumption of miles after a full charge) costing £5.60 (assumption is your domestic electricity costs are 14.0p/kWh) which equates to 2.4p per mile.
Did you know the average cost per mile for a petrol or diesel car is 12p which means it would cost you £28.20 to travel the same distance!
