Making The Move to Electric Motoring Making the switch to electric is a huge step to reducing emissions and the release of them into the atmosphere. This reduction in harmful emissions also has a positive effect on human health, particularly in busy, built up areas. Zero emissions also means you don’t have to pay the London congestion charge. Although emissions are much lower per mile than petrol or diesel engines, you could go one step further and switch to Ecotricity, Britain’s greenest energy company. This would mean your electricity will come completely from renewable and sustainable sources, rather than a fossil fuel power plant. Recharging an electric vehicle costs much less than filling up with fuel. The cost of electricity at charging stations varies and some points are free, however charging at home can cost as little as 2p per mile. What’s more, the government offers grants to anyone making the switch, saving you thousands of pounds before you’ve even driven away.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the different types of Electric Vehicles?


    There are 3 main types of Electric Vehicle (EV); 100% Electric, Plug-in Hybrids (PHEV) and Mild Hybrids. 100% Electric does as the name suggests, runs completely off electric and will need to be plugged in to be re-charged. PHEVs also need to be plugged in to be recharged but as a hybrid they still use an amount of petrol or diesel to run. Finally, Mild Hybrids run on both electricity and petrol or diesel but don't require to be plugged in to recharge.

    How do I charge an Electric Vehicle?


    Electric vehicles can either be charged at public or private charging stations, allowing you to charge your vehicle’s battery regardless of where you are. Mild Hybrids (those that don't require to be plugged in) recharge on their own through regenerative braking without needing to be plugged in. This means the battery will recharge by energy produced each time you brake.

    What type of Public Chargers are available?


    There are 3 main types of Public Chargers; Fast, Rapid and Ultra-Rapid Chargers. You can find out more about Public Charging here.

    Where can I find Public Chargers?


    Fast chargers are usually found in supermarket carparks or leisure centres. Rapid and Ultra Rapid chargers are typically found at service stations. Several shops, restaurants, hotels, workplaces and car parks do now have electric chargers. You can search what type of chargers are nearby or on your route via ZapMap

    What are my Home Charging options?


    Home chargers come in the form of a normal 3-pin plug or you can have a wallbox installed. The 3-pin plug option uses a standard plug in your home, these usually take longer to charge your EV. There's many wallbox options on the market and they vary in charging speed based on their kW. They are fitted to your outside wall close to where you park your EV and allows you to plug you EV in and charge it. The wallboxes that we offer in partnership with Insight Energy can be found here. We will discuss which wallbox is most suited to your EV and your lifestyle and help arrange it to be fitted at your house.

    How long does it take to charge an Electric Vehicle?


    Ultra-Rapid chargers typically take between 20 - 30 minutes and Rapid chargers take up to an hour. Fast chargers take between 1 to 6 hours depending on the amount of kW your car can take. These charge times will differ depending on multiple conditions such as your car's battery size. A home charger can be used for overnight use, where the prices are lower. Please ask our team for specific charging times for an individual model.

    How often will I need to recharge my EV?


    The frequency of recharging depends on many factors that will be personal to your vehicle and your lifestyle. Each EV has a different mile range they're able to do on a single charge based on their battery size. Therefore, your EV will display how many miles you have left before needing to recharge.

    Is Electric Charging expensive?


    No, public charging networks allows you to reduce your annual fuel bill by around 35%. Additionally, charging an electric car at home is 80-90% cheaper per year than refuelling with petrol or diesel if you use a smart charge point to schedule your vehicle to charge overnight.

    How far can I travel in an EV?


    An EV's electric mile range will vary per each make and model. Please speak to a member of our team to find out about a specific vehicle. But with regular EV charging stations that are now available the distance you can travel is endless.

    What about Servicing an EV?


    Servicing an EV will be required at regular intervals, the same as a standard vehicle. We offer EV Service Plans to help you spread the costs via monthly payments over a set period of time.​

    Volkswagen Running Cost Simulator

    Estimated costs are calculated based on the multiplying the price of electricity per charge with the number of charges needed in a year, based on the vehicles WLTP range and energy consumption and 6,000 per annum (3 charges per year, 4 chargers per year for the ID. Buzz). Figures based on the Volkswagen Running Cost Simulator . Based on an average 27p/kw electricity tariff and only charging at home on this tariff. Based on average petrol/diesel costs at time of publication (03/10/2023), £1.57/L for Petrol and £1.62/L for Diesel, sourced from . Assumes charging from 0-100% and 100% of the battery's rated charge capacity (real world battery performance will decline over time). Reduced charging costs are based on Intelligent Octopus Go tariff of 7.5p/kWh during the hours of 11.30 pm to 5.30 am. Individual tariffs will vary - please consult your electricity supplier. For information and comparability only. Results should not be relied upon. Real world results will be different and will depend on multiple factors including actual specification (including options and accessories fitted and differences between UK and standard specification), individual driving style, use of heating/AC, variations in road and weather conditions, vehicle load, starting charge, actual charging/fuel costs etc. Comparator vehicles used for petrol and diesel estimates are ID.3 vrs Golf R-Line diesel, ID.4 vrs Tiguan Elegance, ID.4 GTX vrs Tiguan R-Line diesel, ID.5 vrs Tiguan Elegance, ID.5 GTX vrs Tiguan R-Line diesel and ID. Buzz Pro vrs Multivan Life 1.5 TSI 100 kW DSG. Actual fuel costs will vary depending on location and supplier. Electric vehicles are zero emissions while driving. Figures are subject to change due to ongoing approvals/changes in model specification. Please consult your retailer for further information. The vehicle specification used in the tool may vary due to review of the model range line up throughout the year.
