Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Convenience Factor

Imagine never having to dash around for a fuel station ever again. That is what an electric vehicle can give you. Cars that run ON electricity are usually charged with EV charger at home in a garage or other charging port setup location.

They can also be charged, usually with free parking, at electric vehicle specific ports in most supermarket car parks.

Low Maintenance

Fewer parts go into the physical makeup of this type of vehicle, which translates into fewer repairs to be made throughout ownership and fewer maintenance requirements overall.

They will still require the standard MOT test, and it is recommended to get a garage-certified service too.

Lower Fuel Costs

The amount of electricity you’ll use for a full charge on an electric car is like-for-like cheaper than you’d spend on a tank of fuel to go the same distance.

If you’re able to charge at home, that difference will be even more pronounced. Public rapid chargers will be more expensive than topping up at home, but still noticeably cheaper than petrol or diesel.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the quickest charger on the market to charge my new car?

All home EV chargers charge at the same rate, on average most cars charge at a speed of 25 miles per hour. 

If a buy a 11KW or 22KW home or office charger, can I charge quicker than normal?

Most home electric charges in the UK have a single-phase power supply. To access these higher charging speeds, you will need to have a three-phase power supply in your house. 

How much does it cost to charge my car at home?

If you were charging a car from empty to full and the range on the car is 250 miles. At a new average unit cost of electricity (October 2022) of £0.35 per unit. It will cost £25.90 to fuel a car for 250 miles.

Why is my car less efficient in the winter?

During the winter months the EV batteries range is often reduced. This is primarily caused by a combination of factors the first being EV batteries do not respond well to cold weather. Add to that the car heater or air conditioning are on too, the range is consequently, severely affected. You will see in very cold weather the cars range is reduced by anything up to 40%.

When I am buying an EV car what should I check to ensure I get fast charging.

A) Most cars now use a CCS Type 2 charger port. Essentially this is a piggy back system that allows home charging from an AC power supply at home but also allows rapid DC charging from motorway service stations. We would recommend you check that you can charge your new car using a CCS connector.

B) If you have a three-phase supply at home, you will want to use the faster charging ability.
However, if the car’s on board (charger/ inverter) is only 7.4 KW you will not be able to access the faster charging speeds. It’s very important to check that the car you purchase has the correct on-board charger, which suits your power supply at home or at work.

Should I choose a tethered or untethered car charger?

Ultimately this is a personal choice, untethered chargers do not have a large bulky cable attached permanently to the charger. So, if you want the home EV chargers looking as discreet as possible or you have concerns with vandalism or theft, the untethered version should be right for you

By contrast the tethered charger is more convenient to use, and saves the hassle of using a separate charger lead.

Who should I use to install my home EV chargers?

We obviously would suggest you use Elite Vehicle Chargers but why is that? Whilst there are some very good charger installers there are equally some appalling companies out in the EV market, that we come across daily. Most of the bad examples are from the dealer or utility company incentive deals. In most cases these companies us sub-contractors who are on a very tight budget and as a result the installations are rushed, poorly installed and sometimes dangerous. Most don’t bother with a pre install survey and rely on a customer to supply a few pictures.

Even If you don’t choose us, make sure you check that the electrician you choose is qualified specifically to install car chargers, has carried out a free survey and then check their reviews before you have an EV charger at home installed.
