How much money does it cost to use electric car charging stations and how much is it to charge an electric car (EV) at home?

There are often free charging points available to use at supermarkets or public car parks. Rapid charging points at motorway service stations will cost around £6.50 for you to charge for 30 minutes. If you're charging at home and using your home electricity supply, it works out to around £8.40 for a full overnight charge. It's definitely much cheaper than filling a car with a tankful of petrol or diesel - partly because those fuels have high levels of tax, with the fuel tax levy and VAT applied.
