The latest electric cars are now capable of offering 150 – 200 miles of range on a single charge (some even more). Whilst this may not compare to some petrol/diesel cars with a full tank of fuel, it’s plenty for most journeys and it’ll cost you a lot less in fuel costs.
For longer journeys, you can plan your journey with a stop to give your electric car a little extra charge by plugging it in whilst you take a breather and have a coffee or snack. There are now around 7,500 charging points across the UK and Ireland that allow you to charge your electric car.
Electric Car battery technology is continually evolving - with future releases like Porsche’s Taycan offering ranges of over 310 miles per charge. All of the manufacturers in the Agnew Group are investing significantly in electric battery technology so we expect significant improvements in range, new models and charge point availability.
Other factors also impact the battery range, such as driving style and the use of internal instruments such as air-conditioning.
