How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

Generally speaking, the cost of charging an electric car depends on the battery capacity and on whether you charge it at home or in a public parking area (different prices apply).


We estimate that charging an average-sized car at home in order to achieve a range of 100 km costs about €4.00. The cost of driving a gas-fueled car for 100 km is approximately €12.50*.


In addition, some charging service providers offer not only tariffs based on actual consumption per individual charge, but also flat rate packages for charging at public stations, allowing customers to save money.
