A Vauxhall electric car's range will vary depending on numerious factors such as road characteristics, weather conditions, driving style and the weight in your vehicle. Knowing what can change your range will help you get the most out of every single charge and extend your Vauxhall electric cars battery.
The two factors that affect your range the most are your speed and your acceleration. To drive like an electric pro try to avoid harsh braking, drive in eco modes, avoid unnecessary acceleration and try to plan your journey to avoid large inclines and drive at constant speeds.
Tyre pressure is also a contributor to energy consumption as flatter tyres burn up energy and decrease the range of your vehicle. Check your tyre pressure once a month to ensure it matches the figure in your handbook.
There are multiple charging options available for your Vauxhall electric vehicle including accelerated, domestic and rapid charging, each with varied charging times and capabilities. Many charging stations are located around the UK which can be operated by registering with the network, downloading the networks app and some now have card payments built in.
Accelerated charging was specifically designed for electric vehicles. It’s faster to charge than using a domestic plug. With power levels commonly at 7kW, your vehicle would fully charge in 7.5 hours. Domestic charging uses a standard household 3 pin socket. This method of charging can take 22 hours from a typical domestic household and can be risky if the socket has not been properly checked. Therefore we would always recommend that you have any socket you plan to charge from checked for suitability by a certified electrician. Rapid charging uses direct currents to charge the battery quickly. They charge the first 80% as fast and efficiently as possible and then stop or slow down charging for the final 20%.

The cost of charging an electric vehicle is fully dependent on where you charge and the cost electricity. Some public chargepoints are free, and others have variable charges.
Electricity is priced by kWh (kilowatt hour) - so for a full battery charge you multiply the price per kWh by the battery capacity. This is the same way you would multiply the price per gallon, by the fuel tank capacity.
Average UK electricity cost is 12.5p per kWh
Vauxhall electric vehicles have a 50kW battery
So a full charge would cost 12.5p x 50 = £6.25.
If you then drive the expected WLTP range of 217 miles, this equates to 2.8p per mile.
An electric car has a lot of torque which means it accelerates quicker than most petrol or Diesel cars and is much more responsive when you use the throttle. The reduced noise is also noticable the first few times you drive the electric car as the engine is almost silent and is only noticeable when driving at speed.
Many pure electric vehicles are not currently charged Vehicle Excise Duty (VED). However, an electric vehicle costing more than £40,000 will be subject to the £310 Premium Rate for years 2-6; as will PHEVs, which cost the flat rate of £120 (Standard Rate minus £10 Alternative Fuel Discount) for sub-£40,000 models. First year rates are usually zero, and BIK rates are much lower than petrol or diesel models.
