Charging an electric car at home can vary in cost, it depends on the car itself, your home & of course the cost of your electricity.

You can figure out exactly how much your car costs to charge at home by using this simple equation:

Size of battery x pence per kilowatt hour = total cost from empty to full

Just as an example, if your car had 100kWh, just to keep things easy, and pulling an example price of roughly 14.37p per kWh at the time of writing the cost of fully charging this example car would be £14.37.
