Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

This can depend on several different factors e.g. the size of the battery, the type of charger and even the make and model of the car. You can find out more about this here.

How many miles can I travel in my hired electric car?

This depends on the make and model of the vehicle hired and whether it is a battery electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid. The average range of an electric car in the UK is 193 miles.

Are all electric cars automatic?

Yes. Electric cars don’t require a clutch and don’t have a multi-speed gearbox.

Terms and conditions

*Relates to 64 kWh battery, dependent on driving conditions. ^From 10% to 80% state of charge, if charged at a 100 kW DC charging station. All figures calculated are under WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) regulations, which measure fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles in Europe. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. Range dependent on ambient temperature, battery state of charge and condition, driving style, vehicle payload, vehicle electronics, heating and climate settings.

**These figures were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
