Cost of electric cars
How much does an electric car cost?
That depends on which one you buy, but whichever you choose, there are some government incentives that make it cheaper to buy a new EV. There is a government grant for electric cars called the Plug-in Car Grant – this reduces the price of a battery electric vehicle by ￡3,000. So a new Kia e-Niro costs just ￡34,995 after the Plug in Car Grant. There is also a ￡350 homecharge grant to help you with the cost of a home charger.
