Running Costs

Always in saving mode.

Electric really pays off. Benefit from the low overall running costs thanks to government subsidies and cheaper service trips.

A smart investment. 

Naturally, it is not easily possible to compare prices of electric cars and cars with conventional engine. But when it comes to the actual running costs, the advantages are numerous:

 

  • The cost of servicing: it’s lower than that of an internal combustion vehicle. There are far fewer moving parts with battery powered engines and oil changes are not required.
  • Lower taxation: for example, in Ireland the tax rate is much lower for EV owners. Owners of new EV's registered before Decemeber 2021 are eligible for VRT relief up to €5,000. 

Smart decisions about charging.

The way you charge your battery can also make it more economical to own an electric vehicle in the long term. For instance, you can save money by using multiple opportunities of public charging offers to charge for free as a guest. If you have a smart wall box with a connection to the smart wall box backend installed at home, you can easily manage the time when charging is economically most convenient, depending on the rates of your energy provider or the integration in renewable energy facilities (might require additional hardware). And by using smartphone apps related to your vehicle or the smart wallbox it is possible to monitor and operate your charging sessions remotely, so you can always ensure efficient charging and be informed about your charging status.
