page title icon How much does an Electric Car cost to run?

Overall an EV is much cheaper to run than a diesel or petrol/gas car. A PHEV will also be cheaper to run but will depend on what % of miles you recharge and the % you run on petrol/gas.
Here are the main costs in running an electric car, van or truck:
  1. Depreciation (if you are buying outright – either new or used). 
  2. Fuel (charging)
  3. Maintenance/servicing
  4. Insurance
  5. Vehicle tax
  6. Consumables
  7. Other EV-specific costs
