Frequently asked questions

What does it cost to drive an electric car?

Tax benefits are associated with the purchase of an electric car. Electric cars are exempt from BPM and motor vehicle tax. Lease drivers pay 4% addition for al full electric car. Companies that promote electric driving among their employees and place public charging facilities can qualify for an environmental subsidy. Because of all these tax advantages concerning electric cars, there are many questions about the operating costs of the electric car.

The costs of charging depend on the amount of electricity used and the tariff used. Depending on the type of car and the size of the battery, between 6kW and 12kW can be charged  with a Plug-in Hybrid.

The electricity tariff depends on the location, provider and manner refueling. The business flow rate is approximately 12 cents per kW. The public loading tariff is approximately 22 cents per kW. The costs of the provider are comparable to the home rate. Fast charging costs between 40 and 69 cents per kW.

How long does it take to charge my car?vragen over Elektrische auto opladen

How fast your car is charging depends on the type of charging point and how empty the battery is. 

As a rule, the principle applies: the higher the number of kilowatts of the charging point, the faster your battery is full. The charging time of most public charging stations is 6 to 8 hours to charge your car from 1 to 100 percent. A fast charger can speed up this process to a charging time of 15 to 30 minutes to load 80%.

With the formula P (Watt) = U (Voltage) x I (Amperage) you calculate the capacity flow. The home charger can be charged at home via the wall socket or a home charging station. A standard house connection usually has a capacity of 3x 25A or 1x 40A. In order not to overload your energy network, it is best to connect the charging station with 16A. It is advisable to make a separate fuse group for the charging station (16A).

Is the charging process safe?

Due to the standard sequence of actions to charge your car, the risks are very limited. The plug is only energized when both ends are connected and the plug is locked in the charging station. The charge point is locked with your charge card. As soon as someone pulls the plug out of the car during charging, the charging process stops. This way nobody can make improper use of the power.

Is it possible to charge my electric car with an ordinary socket?

An electric car can be charged directly via the power socket with a home charging station or the RAY charging cable. Normal wall sockets provide 16 amperes. It is advisable to connect a home charging station to a separate group.

What is the road tax for an electric car?

As in 2016, in 2017 you will not pay a road tax for a full electric car. In any case, this has been agreed until 2012. Electric drving is encouraged by the cabinet.

What type of cable do I need for my car?

Which charging cable you need depends on the type of car you have purchased.
The contact point on the vehicle side sometimes has a different connection than the contact point on the side of the charging station. Currently, all vehicles with a Type 1 or Type 2 connection are being marketed. Type 2 is the most common connection therein.

See the diagram below for the type of connection for your electric car:
