Similar to petrol/diesel vehicles having multiple engine options, electric vehicles have multiple different types of batteries, charging capabilities and methods of charging. If you throw into the mix the fact that the average consumer doesn’t understand charge rates, charger types and battery capacities – then it can become very confusing.

This guide has been designed to make it easy for you find out the battery and charger information for each EV and PHEV on the road in the UK.

If you’re looking to purchase an EV charging cable, then SaveMoneyCutCarbon have multiple options available that all comes with a 5 year warranty.
