Right. This is the last time I respond because CLEARLY you have no idea what you are talking about. As it turns out it is £19 when I just got a link. It was £17 once thoughhttps://pod-point.com/guides/driver/cos ... ectric-car
It is you that hasn't a clue. Charger installers do not set your electricity rate.
Here is my electricity tarifhttps://octopus.energy/smart/intelligent-octopus/
The cost for charging the car is 7.5p/kWh
My battery is a fairly typical 58kWh
7.5p * 58 = £4.35
Taking your link the quoted battery is 60kWh so within 2kWh of mine, on this tariff it adds 15 pence.
Cobalt and Lithium mainly.
Cobalt is already being phased out of the current batteries, with most now being LFP and cobalt free.
Lithium isn't rare and lower end cars are starting to use sodium batteries.
Yeah, but the UK would have to restart all these coal plants up like we would have had to do if we had a cold winter this year.
Those standby coal stations barely run and cannot be restarted because they are already being dismantled. We have one left at Radcliffe on soar.
The only needle Sunak moved is a political one to pander to a section of his party. If manufacturers are fined for selling you an ICE they will add that fine to the price you pay.
The irony of someone with clearly no first hand experience telling someone who drives 15,000 miles a year in an EV is just amusing and sad.
