What does an electric car cost?

New electric cars tend to cost more than a conventional car to purchase, however used electric cars generally have the equivalent price of a used petrol or diesel vehicle.

Electric cars have significantly lower maintenance costs due to their fewer moving parts.

EECA calculates charging up your car costs the equivalent of 30c per litre. You can also charge up for free.
