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.
