WHAT ARE THE TYPICAL RUNNING COSTS FOR AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?
Maintenance and running costs for electric vehicles are much lower than a petrol or diesel equivalent. The cost to charge an EV is less costly than filling a car with petrol or diesel (and of course is none polluting!), but they also have fewer moving parts which means lower servicing costs and not as many things to wear or fail.
For instance, electric cars do not need oil or filter changes and the regenerative braking system on EVs mean that the brakes wear much more slowly too.
