Full electric and plug-in hybrid cars are growing in popularity and now come in all shapes and sizes, from two-seater city cars to 4×4 off-roaders. Electric vehicle (EV) technology has developed greatly since the milk float, and as performance and range increases, purchasing an electric vehicle is becoming a very viable option for many people in Richmond-upon-Thames.
One of the main benefits of electric vehicles is their environmental credentials. Unlike petrol or diesel cars, electric cars don’t emit any of the gases that contribute to global warming, making them a great choice for anyone who cares about their carbon footprint. As one of 13 members of the Zero Emission Vehicle Alliance, the UK has pledged to make all passenger vehicles sold “zero-emissions” by 2050.
Make the most of your Richmond-upon-Thames electric car
To get the most out of your vehicle, a properly equipped electric car charging station at your own Richmond-upon-Thames home is essential. It is estimated that electric vehicle owners do more than 80% of their charging at home. A Richmond-upon-Thames home car charging point allows them to take advantage of the low, stable rates of residential electricity and the fast charging capacity of these specialised outlets.
A 32A charger will give 30 miles of range per hour, the size of your car's battery will determine how long it will take to charge, the industry leading Tesla Model 3 will take around 8 hours from empty.
If you’re looking into an electric car charger installation at your Richmond-upon-Thames residence for efficient and convenient car charging, contact us today.
How does it work?
Most Richmond-upon-Thames homes have single phase 230V supplies meaning the maximum power of chargers suitable are 7kw/32amps. Chargers are supplied by a 6mm cable wired directly from your fuse box/consumer unit and must be on their own dedicated circuit.
Depending on the condition and capacity of your fuse box/consumer unit an additional unit may need to be installed to supply the electric vehicle circuit.
What does it cost?
Suppliers now offer great EV tariffs with money saving incentives; scheduled charging enables the car to be plugged in and set to charge between pre-set times like midnight and 7am to charge when the EV tariff gives the lowest price of electricity. This requires a smart meter to be fitted by your Richmond-upon-Thames supplier.
A full electric Hyundai Ioniq costs much less to run than an equivalent petrol or diesel saloon, at around £4.80 to charge from empty to full, with a range of 193 miles, costing only 2.94p per mile (based on 14p/kWh tariff).
Tethered or Untethered?
9/10 customers go for tethered - a built in lead - as it is more convenient and allows you to keep your spare lead in the boot to use when you are away from home.
Some clients in Richmond-upon-Thames, however, prefer to have untethered - socket only - as they find the coiled leads untidy when not in use.
