How is this calculated?

Savings are an indicative estimate only and actual results may vary. Fuel prices have been sourced from the Western Australian Government’s FuelWatch website and are based on 140.4 cents per litre which is the average price from [01/07/16] to [30/06/17]. Energy prices are based on exclusively charging the EV at the EV off-peak rate of 19.7672c per unit. For more information go to the Products and Prices page on our website. Running costs sourced from the Green Vehicle Guide © Commonwealth of Australia (Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development) 2014. Maintenance costs are indicative only and may vary from vehicle to vehicle. They also depend on the type of trip and distance travelled. The calculator assumes an EV will have a 3 cents per kilometre saving over a non EV.

Charging your electric vehicle

“Range anxiety” (or worrying about how far you can drive your electric vehicle (EV)) is a barrier for many people considering an EV – but it doesn’t need to be. There are already hundreds of places to charge your EV in Perth and that number is growing.

Whether you have a fully electric car or a plug-in hybrid of petrol and battery engine, where and how you charge your EV will soon become a natural part of your driving habits. Here’s what you need to know about charging your EV at home, at work or at stops along your way.

  You can find your closest charging station using the Plugshare map show below.
