The cost difference between conventional cars and electric cars is decreasing and is anticipated to nearly vanish. A typical new electric car, however, still costs between £23,000 and £43,000 more than a comparable gas or diesel model. However, there are more and more affordable used EVs available. Several old five-seater electric hatchbacks for between £8,000 and £21,000. Another choice is leasing.
