If you're looking for a new electric car then Colin Appleyard are here to help.
Electric cars are powered using rechargeable batteries which means they are better for the environment as they do not produce emissions like traditional engines. Electric cars need to be plugged into a charging point which can be fitted at your home. You can also re-charge your electric car using the increasing number of charging points whicha re available throughout the country.

The time it takes to charge an electric car vary and can depend on the make and model as well as the type of charger being used. It's always recommended to have a dedicated charging point installed at your home and these will typically charge between 10 and 30 miles per hour. Public charging points will deliver a charge equivalent to between 20 and 80 miles per hour but if you use a fast-charging point (commonly found in motorway service stations and public car parks) you could charge from empty to 80% in less than an hour.
The range of any EV is varied with some able to travel around 150 miles with other able to cover over 300 miles on a single charge. The make and model is a big factor along with the size of the battery not to mention how you drive.
Whilst electric cars are more expensive to buy they are cheaper to run than a traditional petrol or diesel car. It is important however to make sure you are on a tariff that suits your requirements (which may include a reduced rate for charging during off-peak times).
