EV Drivers Save Big When They Charge Smart

Drivers of battery-electric vehicles are more than able to move charging times to suit the grid and in doing so can save over $1,000 annually on charging costs compared to gas fueling. This is according to data from more than one million home charging sessions provided by ev.energy.

The power consumption of some battery-electric vehicles can be as much as some homes, with data showing vehicles with larger batteries consume more energy and drive further than those with smaller batteries. Indeed, Tesla models are estimated to drive further annually than the average gas vehicle in the U.K., and close to the annual distance of gas vehicles in the U.S. Electric vehicles are therefore proven to not limit total distance traveled.
