When comparing electric cars, look at both the size of the battery (measured in kWh) and how efficient the vehicle is. These determine the range - how far the car can go between charges.

How to go electric
Check out the costs and savings
Electric cars may cost more upfront, but running costs are much lower. An EV can easily save you over £1,000 every year in fuel, tax and servicing.
Lease or subscription avoid upfront costs and remove your worries about technology or depreciation. An EV lease may cost less than just filling your old petrol car each month.
Think about your driving patterns
Forget overall mileage. Day to day patterns are what matters when it comes to battery size. Our EV match tool finds the right car for you, maximising savings from home charging and minimising purchase cost.
Most EVs now do over 200 miles, making an average week a piece of cake. Try our longer journey checker to see what different EVs would mean for a journey you make less often.
Compare cars by range but also look at the on-board max speed. The difference can be huge on the fastest chargers. A 130kW car adds 160 miles in 30 minutes, but a 300kW model can add 430 miles in the same time.
What about charging an EV?
If you have off-street parking, charging an electric car at home can be the most convenient thing about driving an electric car, and it's cheaper and greener to charge at home. A home charger is best, but you can even charge using a household plug.
On the road, there are rapid chargers in over 3,500 locations across the UK. These chargers mean you can refill and get back on the road in around 30 minutes!
The real range you get for any journey depends on lots of factors. Your speed and driving style have a big impact. You'll also get around 10% more miles over the summer than in the winter months.
