Is Electric right for me?

The facts you need to know about converting to an electric vehicle.

Where is your main charge point?

A range of electric vehicle (EV) charging options are available, from home charging for convenience to public fast chargers for quick top-ups. Read on to discover the best solutions to keep your EV powered and ready for the road.

Steady access to charging. Home charging options for EVs include standard Level 1 chargers which connect to regular three-pin power supplies, and faster Level 2 chargers that require special installation. Both provide convenient, overnight charging, ensuring your vehicle is ready each morning.
Occasional access to charging. Occasional charging solutions, like workplace chargepoints, offer convenience and flexibility. This allows employees to recharge their EVs during work hours, reducing range anxiety and ensuring vehicles are ready for the commute home.
Reliant on public charging Across the UK, EV drivers can access a growing network of public charging stations, including rapid chargers at motorway services, supermarkets and urban car parks. These access points ensure convenient, quick top-ups for longer journeys and daily commutes.

How far do you drive daily?

Range is the distance an EV can travel on a single charge, and it varies based on battery capacity and driving conditions. Understanding your daily driving distance is crucial for choosing the right EV to meet your needs.

Short Trips. EVs are perfect for short trips because they easily cover daily commutes and weekly shopping expeditions – indeed, any EV can handle short distances on a single charge.
Medium Trips. For medium trips, EV range is sufficient, typically covering distances like regional travel or weekend getaways. With many models offering ranges in excess of 250 miles (the Renault Megane E-Tech 100% Electric included), most medium-length journeys can be completed on a single charge.
Long Trips. An EV such as the Renault Megane E-Tech 100% Electric offers a range of up to 379 miles, making it very suitable for long journeys. Otherwise, EV range requires strategic planning; however, with motorway fast chargers available, extended travel with minimal charging stops is easily achievable.


Owning an EV brings environmental benefits, lower costs and reduced maintenance. Modern charging infrastructure offers convenience, with home, workplace and public charging options making it easier to keep your vehicle powered and ready to go.

Cost of daily use EVs significantly reduce daily expenditure with lower fuel costs, decreased servicing expenses and tax incentives, making them a cost-effective and eco-friendly choice for everyday use.
Cost of maintenance EVs offer reduced maintenance costs due to fewer moving parts, no oil changes and less wear on brakes, resulting in lower service expenses and increased reliability, saving you money over time.
Government-backed electric schemes Publicly subsidised schemes include grants for purchasing electric vehicles, financial assistance with home chargepoints, and incentives such as reduced road tax. This helps to promote eco-friendly motoring while making EV adoption more affordable.
