Is Electric for me?

With record sales of electric cars it’s safe to say the electric revolution is here to stay. And with the government ban on petrol and diesel vehicles in 2030, it’s no longer a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’.
.

Why go Electric?

With lower running costs, less maintenance and being better for the environment, these vehicles embody genuine hope for the future plus they are fast and fun to drive.

Functioning at 90% plus efficiency, as opposed to internal combustion engines at 30%, electric motors are set to help solve many of the critical climate and energy problems the world is now facing.

Yes, it’s time to make the switch.

More awesome please…

 

When we set out on this mission one of our early guiding principles was:

‘How we can we make the experience of charging an EV, over refueling a petrol car, more awesome, in every way?’

And it’s fair to say that it’s not just us thinking like this; the emerging EV world is a new and exciting domain, the drive experience is modern and thrilling, the technology is slick and sophisticated, the cars have more room and are really quiet.

Quite simply, going EV, is stepping into a world of better.

POWER UP 589

Power up

You will need to understand some basics about EVs and a good place to start is vehicle charging. At first, it can seem like speaking a whole new language but it’s actually super straight forward.

The make and model of your vehicle will determine how fast you can charge your car, and how far a full charge can take you.

At GRIDSERVE’s Electric Forecourts® we have installed future-proofed chargers that will charge your vehicle at the fastest speed possible.  

Power up

Hybrid EVs are looking increasingly like an interim technology and with recent range and charging performances from the new BEV models, the ownership case of PHEV/HEV is narrowing further.

HEV
HEV means Hybrid Electric Vehicle. These cars integrate a battery and an electric motor to enhance the efficiency of the engine. The battery is charged by a regular engine and they are ultimately still powered by fossil fuel.

BEVBEV stands for Battery Electric Vehicle and is the term used for vehicles that are 100% battery operated. Often the ‘B’ is dropped which is how we arrive at EV. These are the cars we love at GRIDSERVE.

PHEV
Designed a little like a HEV, a PHEV or Plug In Electric Vehicle has a bigger battery pack that can be charged by plugging in. Short journeys can be made with electricity, but on longer trips, they switch back to using petrol.

WHAT IS A KWH image 589

What is a Kilowatt-Hour?

A Kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a measure of electrical energy equivalent to the power consumption of 1 kilowatt for 1 hour. This measurement defines the amount of energy delivered as a result of a charging session.

Also, pence per kilowatt-hour is a common metric to calculate how much your charging session will cost.

How much does GRIDSERVE charge?

We are obsessed with helping to drive the adoption of EVs in as fast a timeframe as possible.

In support of this, we are offering two fantastic deals:

Charging Included – Anyone who leases a vehicle through GRIDSERVE will have all their charging included.

UK’s Cheapest Rate – And for others who already have an EV or bought it elsewhere we offer our contactless high power charging at 24p / kWh.

That’s how we can say we’re leading the charge!

HOW FAR ON A FULL BATTERY Image 589

How far on a full battery?

An EV battery can hold enough power to drive between 80 and 285 miles depending on the make and model. The Tesla Model S has a range estimate of 348 miles while the Renault Zoe clocks in at 233 miles.

The range also depends on how fast you are driving, the time of year and the type of terrain.
