Electric driving

Electric driving
Running costs

Low charging costs, reduced service costs, minimal mileage costs. By nature, an electric car keeps your vehicle expenses in check. Add potential government grants and incentives, and buying one makes even more sense.

    Full charge for a low cost

    On average, charging an electric car is cheaper than refuelling a petrol car. Plugging into a fast DC charger at a motorway charging station is more expensive than power supply at home or work, but most EV drivers will only do so a fraction of the time.

    Low maintenance

    Electric cars have far fewer moving parts when compared with conventional cars. Therefore, the service intervals are further apart, and the amount of maintenance that needs to be done is relatively limited. EVs such as Polestar 2 even allow remote diagnostics through their onboard internet connection, meaning that potential technical issues get noticed before becoming costly repairs.

    Minimal wear and tear

    As electric powertrains are less complicated and more efficient, wear and tear become less of a consideration. Electric motors and battery packs are built to last, and regenerative braking ensures that brake pads and discs endure well. Essentially, tyres, wiper blades and washer fluid are the parts that require the most attention. Nothing compared to all the items that can add to the maintenance costs of a conventional car.

    An interesting leasing alternative

    The lower running costs of an EV make them a compelling lease option. The monthly rate is usually lower because there’s less risk of high maintenance and changing fuel costs. Another plus is that performance EVs like Polestar 2 tend to be more resistant to depreciation (source: Driving Electric).

    Government grants and tax incentives

    Plug-in car grants, lower tariffs, subsidies for home charging points. Many governments have already introduced incentives to promote electric driving.
