On a full charge, the new Vauxhall Corsa-E has a range of 209 miles, the Peugeot E-208 has 217 miles and the Hyundai Kona up to 300 miles. These are all similar to what you would expect from over half a tank of petrol or diesel. A typical electric vehicle takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW charging point. Most chargers that we have available on our website operate at around that mark, meaning you could get almost a full charge every evening through the use of a home charger.
The infrastructure and charging network around the country is also getting much better which should help reduce this ‘range anxiety’. Zap-Map, for example, is an app/website that displays over 20,000 public charge points across the UK and comes with a handy route planner for longer journeys. This way you can plan your route to stop off at rapid charge points to quickly charge your vehicle and get back on the road.
