There are roughly 500,000 electric vehicles in the UK, and rising gas prices have encouraged more people to consider switching to EVs. The government will ban the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles in 2030, ten years earlier than expected. Today, a 47-liter family hatchback currently costs about £85 to fill its gas tank and £88 to fill it with diesel. Home charging frequently only costs half as much, or roughly £41, to deliver the same number of miles, despite recent rises in electricity costs. The cost of public charging varies. However, it may be around £48, which is still far less than regular gas. It is soon expected that the price difference between conventional and electric automobiles will disappear. However, a brand-new electric car still costs, on average, between £23,000 and £43,000 more than a gas or diesel model. But used EVs are becoming easier to find and more affordable. There are several second-hand five-seater electric hatchbacks available for between £8,000 and £21,000.
