How much does it cost to charge an electric car?


It depends on the vehicle and its battery capacity. For example, it costs £17* for the Citroën ë-C4 to be fully charged at home.

*Please note: this is an average figure that is correct at the time of writing. The actual cost will be dependent on your energy-supplier tariff and other factors

How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?


Again, it depends on the car and the battery – and where and how the charging takes place. Let’s look at the Citroën ë-C4: at home using a three-pin (3kW) power supply, it takes about 16.7 hours. With a dedicated home-charging (7kW) wallbox, the time is reduced to around 7.1 hours. With arapid-charging (50kW) public connector, a full charge takes approximately one hour.

What is the range of electric and hybrid vehicles?


It varies from vehicle to vehicle. EVs offer greater range. For instance, the all-electric Citroën ë-C4 offers up to 219 miles. Plug-in hybrids provide more range than a hybrid; for example, the new Citroën C5 Aircross PHEV is capable of a 34-mile pure-electric range.
