The demand for electric cars has significantly increased, with sales up 180% last year compared to 2019. Plug-in Hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) also grew by 90% over the same period. With the price per mile of charging an electric car estimated to be around a third of filling up with petrol, choosing an electric car means you make considerable savings on your monthly fuel bill, as well doing your bit for the environment. Although, electric cars might seem more expensive, leasing is an affordable option that allows you to drive the latest models for easy to manage monthly fee.

In theory, charging an EV is simple; it’s just like a phone, plug it in and wait for it to fill. But, in reality, there are a few things you need to consider.

There are lots of questions, and we’ve developed this guide to give you the answers to some of the most common ones, and some of the ones you were afraid to ask!
