HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CHARGE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?
The cost of charging an electric vehicle depends on where you charge the vehicle and the cost of your electricity. Although the majority of customers install a charge-point at their home, using public charging stations is another option, some are free to use, others have variable charges.

WHAT PLUGS DO THE ELECTRIC VEHICLES USE?
New generation vehicles are equipped with CCS (Combined charging system) sockets, so they can be charged from a standard Type 2 chargepoint, a domestic plug socket, or a public rapid charger. Our plug-in hybrids have Type 2 sockets - as they don't need to be rapidly charged.

Unfortunately, you cannot benefit from the government's Homecharge grant scheme, however there are numerous ways to charge your vehicle if you don’t have off street parking including at your workplace, the government offers grant funding for workplaces to install a charge point. The second charging option is public charge points or selected local councils provide charging points for residents that must park on the street. Some London boroughs have introduced lamppost charging already.
