Uswitch create electric vehicle buyers’ hub

To answer common questions drivers have around electric vehicles (EVs), Uswitch have created a hub for everything anyone might need to know about EVs and their home before, during or after purchasing.

The buyers’ guide features such information as:

  • home considerations before installing an EV charger
  • will switching to an EV really make a difference to the environment?
  • will an EV save me money?
  • how much does it cost to charge an average electric car?
  • is it expensive to install a home charger?
  • could installing a home charger affect the value of my home?

The guide also features a jargon buster, such as: ‘NGC Rating: Stands for “Next Green Car Rating” and is the environmental impact of specific cars’ makes and models according to NGC’, and information on different charging types (CCS, Type 1 and Type 2).

EV Expert at Uswitch, Ben Gallizzi, said: “With an increasing number of environmentally conscious consumers, more accessible technology and government incentives to reach the UK’s 2050 Net Zero carbon emissions target, the EV market is projected to grow significantly.

“However, with more electric cars on the road, there’s no guarantee that a public charging point will be available when you need it. In 2021, research found there were 19 cars for every Plugin Electric Vehicle charging point.

“For many people, the most convenient way to charge an electric car will be at home. Not only will a home charger ensure you always have access to a charging point but it could increase the value of your property.”
