How much does it cost to charge a battery-powered car?

It can be hard to figure out how much it will cost to charge an electric car at home or on the road.

For the four out of five people who buy new cars and can charge them at home, usually overnight, the cost per mile is almost always less than the cost of gas for a similar car.

It’s harder for people who live in apartments because companies that run charging points in shared parking areas may charge different prices.

Prices vary for DC fast-charging, which a driver will probably want to use on road trips longer than an EV’s range, but are usually about the same as gasoline prices.

Depending on whether you charge your Tesla Model Y at home or at a much more expensive Level 3 fast-charger

it could cost as little as $9 or as much as $40. The Model Y is currently the most popular EV.
