Electric Cars Cost More To Run Than Petrol Cars

Is it now CHEAPER to drive a petrol or diesel car over an electric car? This has been a big topic of conversation recently and it’s time we find out by doing the math. Is it cheaper to drive an EV if you charge it at home? However what if you can’t charge at home is public charging so expensive that petrol is now cheaper than electric? We also look at the tipping point between diesel and electric.
