If you want to know how cheaply can BRITISH drivers travel in their cars the answer is for just one penny a mile for the first time since the early 1970s according to a newspaper article just published.
This publicity from EDF assumes drivers can charge at home and are OK with energy from Nuclear power plants.
EDF Energy’s new electric tariff offers a charging rate of 4.5p/ kwh which is equivalent to 1.3pence per mile. Experts say this is the first time drivers can travel in the UK for just a penny a mile since 1972 when petrol costs were just 35p per gallon.British drivers can travel for just 1p a mile for the first time since 1972 – Daily Express – June 2021
The new go Electric 35 Tariff also allows drives to fully charge their electric car for less than a fiver.
EDF said a survey from them shows the majority of drivers still believe it costs around 34p per mile to drive an electric car.
Meanwhile, only a quarter of those surveyed were aware they could save money in the long run by switching to an electric car.
Over a third were not aware it was cheaper to fully charge an electric vehicle than to fill up a petrol or diesel tank with fuel.
