How much does an electric car cost to drive and charge?

Electric cars are typically much cheaper to run when compared to their combustion engine alternatives. 

Pod Point estimate a cost of £8.40 to fully charge your electric car at home. If you want more convenience, a 30-minute rapid charge worth around 100 miles of range can cost around £6.50 a time. This will of course vary depending on the size of the battery in your electric car.

Electric cars can be more expensive to buy or lease, but you certainly save money on running costs throughout your time behind the wheel.

The Hyundai IONIQ is one of the more efficient electric cars to drive, with the Electric Vehicle Database estimating that it costs £3.75 per 100 miles.
