According to new information from RAC Charge Watch, the cost to charge an electric car on a pay-as-you-go basis at a publicly available “fast” charger has risen by 42%, or 18.75p per kilowatt hour, since May to reach an average of 63.29p per kilowatt hour.
It now costs EV drivers on average £32.41 to rapid charge a typical family-sized electric car with a 64kWh battery to 80%, which is up nearly £10 (£9.60) since May and £13.59 compared to a year ago. A driver who only uses a quick or ultra-rapid charger on the public network will now pay about 18p per mile for power, according to the RAC’s statistics. This compares to 19p per mile for a petrol vehicle and 21p per mile for a diesel vehicle. Therefore, the difference between charging an expensive electric vehicle that can set you back thousands of pounds and filling up your average petrol vehicle is only a difference of 1p per mile. Yes, 1p!
So what now? You want to help reduce carbon emissions and save money on fuel and now you know that electric vehicle are not worth the hype, what do you do?

I don’t own electric cars but I recently happened to be traveling towards Manchester airport and the chauffeur I booked from Airport Transfers Birminghamwas an Electric one. Really great experience overall with the electric car.
