Electric cars are typically more expensive to buy than regular cars, but this cost is offset by their running costs, which are significantly cheaper.
Yes. It’s cheaper to top up an EV with electricity than it is to fill up a fuel car with petrol/diesel. What’s more, EVs are more affordable to maintain because an electric drivetrain has fewer working parts than a combustion engine, which means it’s less likely to go wrong.
It depends on the battery and the charging method.
Let’s take the Ford Mustang Mach-E as an example. Assuming its battery is at 20 per cent and is charged using a public connector, it’ll cost about £27 to achieve a 100% charge
Again, it depends on the make and model. A 0-100% charge for the Mustang Mach-E – using a three-pin power supply or dedicated wallbox – will cost approximately £26.
EV batteries are usually covered by an eight-year warranty, but many last at least 10 years.
