EV FAQs

The time it takes to charge an EV varies depending on the type of charger used and the EV's battery capacity. Generally, charging times can range from as little as 30 minutes with fast chargers (rapid chargers) to several hours with standard home chargers. The specific charging time can also be influenced by factors such as the EV model and its current battery level. When you hire an EV from us, you will be provided with an EV charging guide to give you an estimate of the charging times you should expect. It should be noted that it is not recommended to use rapid chargers regularly as this can damage the health of your battery. Instead, try to charge your EV over a longer period, such as overnight.

The cost of charging an EV depends on several factors including the electricity rate in your area, the EV's battery size, and the type of charger used. On average, charging an EV at home can cost significantly less than refuelling a traditional ICE vehicle. Many EV drivers find that their charging costs are lower than the equivalent cost of petrol or diesel. For rapid charging, you can expect to pay slightly more for the increased electricity supply.

Each year we are seeing the range of EVs improving, with some vans offering up to an impressive 200 miles on a single charge. However, it’s important to note that driving range can vary based on driving conditions, weather, and payload. To find the right electric vehicle for your business call us on 0800 980 9966.

Driving an EV can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions compared to ICE vehicles. EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions, meaning they don't emit harmful pollutants like carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter. Additionally, as renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power become more prevalent, the environmental benefits of EVs increase even further.

Yes, most EVs are compliant with Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) regulations. Since EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions, they meet the strictest emission standards and are typically exempt from ULEZ charges in cities that have implemented such zones. However, it's essential to check local regulations and exemptions to ensure compliance.
