Buying and owning an electric vehicle

Whole life costs, which include purchase price, fuel and running costs, could be cheaper with an electric car. Grants, exemptions, plus local incentives like free parking and charging also help you save when you switch.

Charge at home or on the road

If you have off-street parking, you can install a wall box charger at home through using the Electric VehicleHomecharge Scheme.

From April 1st 2020, the scheme offers a 75% contribution towards the cost and installation of a charging unit (up to a maximum of £350^). When you’re on the road, find your nearest charger using Zap-Map.

All about charging

Cost of Ownership

Electric car maintenance and fuelling costs

As a rough guide, you can fully charge an electric car overnight for as little as £5.30*. As well as being easier to run, electric vehicles are also simpler to maintain because they have far fewer parts than traditional vehicles.

Congestion Charge

Eligible electric cars are currently completely exempt from London’s Congestion Charge. Based on a £11.50 daily cost Monday to Friday, this could save you up to £2,990** per year for cars entering the Congestion Zone on a daily basis.

Vehicle excise duty

Electric vehicles that have zero-emissions are currently completely exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), also known as road tax.
