Why so low? On average, ongoing EV maintenance is 35% less than for a traditional vehicle. However, be sure to factor in the life and warranty of your battery when choosing which EV is right for you.

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.

Learn about electric vehicles

Some people call them electric cars. At Synergy, we call them electric vehicles or EVs – and we’re here to help you make sense of BEVs, HEVs and PHEVs.

Whether you’re already driving an EV in Perth and want to learn more about other options or you’re just getting started, here’s our beginner’s guide to EVs.

FAQ

How far can an EV drive?

According to the Electric Vehicle Council, the average distance an EV can drive on one charge (based on the models currently available in Australia) is more than five hours, non-stop. That’s more than most of us need to drive around in one day.

Every model has a different driving range, from around 130km for one charge to more than 600km in one charge for some of the luxury models. It’s getting even easier to charge your EV in Perth with more charging stations popping up around our metro and regional areas. It’s also good to remember that your car is probably parked for a lot more hours than it is actually driving, which gives you plenty of time to top up your EV’s battery charge.

How EVs help the environment 

EVs help to reduce greenhouse emissions, air pollution and traffic noise. While the fully-electric models don’t emit greenhouse gases, EVs aren’t completely emission-free, especially if you charge your EV using traditional sources of electricity. They are still a much cleaner form of transport than cars which run on petrol and diesel.
