How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Car?
Updated September 2021
Below you will find our updated “Cost to Charge” charts with most of the electric vehicles on the road today (USA). Not only do the charts illustrate the cost to charge (per hour), but also how many miles of range can be added (max) per hour of charging as well. Share with friends and family who don’t drive electric cars yet!
Calculating the Cost to Charge Your Electric Car is Easy:
1. Find your most recent utility bill to obtain your cost per kWh. The average rate in the U.S. is $0.1269 per kWh (December 2019), which is the cost we use in the chart below.*
2. Find your electric vehicle battery capacity using the chart below or the vehicle manufacturers’ website.
3. Multiply the electric rate from #1 with your battery capacity from #2. This will be an estimate of the cost to fully charge your electric vehicle if it’s completely empty.
*Battery sizes were obtained using manufacturer websites. This chart does not take into account the usable battery percentage; it may cost less to charge your vehicle from empty to full if the usable battery percentage is less than the battery size.
