What happens when an Electric car runs out of charge?

Range Anxiety

When learning that the car they can afford has a much lower range than they been used to most people get very concerned. However, in most cases, they won’t need so much.


Electric cars provide an indication of the expected number of miles remaining.

No charge left

When the charge has expired, like a Petrol or Diesel vehicle, they will come to a stop. Generally they will need to be towed to the nearest charging point, although mobile chargers are starting to appear.


If the Insurance policy does not cover this situation then Breakdown cover is needed.

Incidentally Insurance for Electric vehicles is still all over the place, with prices varying considerably and difficult to compare.
