It’s very interesting reading an article from the AA this week, the article highlights how the fall in petrol prices has resulted in a pence per mile saving over electric vehicles. A continued fall in the pump price of petrol now places the running costs around 14.45 p/mile4 meaning that a petrol combustion engine vehicle is cheaper to run per mile than an EV exclusively using the fastest types of chargers. However, and this is a very big however, most EV drivers will only use rapid and ultra-rapid chargers on longer journeys or as a quick top up meaning that electric drivers will save money when comparing overall running costs with a petrol car. As pump prices continue to fall and with electricity going in the opposite direction in may not be too long before petrol is cheaper on a pence per mile basis than even charging an EV using off peak rates.
