3. EV Tip: Claiming back the electricity cost of charging
If you use an EV for work, you may want to claim back the charging cost for the miles you do from your employer. In theory, it’s possible to claim the price of the electricity, but in practice it’s very complex to track and report. As a result, many employers prefer to use the official HMRC Advisory Electricity Rate (AER) rate, which is currently set at 5p per mile.
Please note, though, that these rates apply to fully electric cars. Plug-in hybrids use the standard business mileage rates for petrol or diesel, depending on their engine.
4. EV Review: What Car?
MG ZS EV Review. The problem with electric cars – especially electric SUVs – is that while they're cheap to run, they're usually expensive to buy. The MG ZS EV you see here is the notable exception. Click on the link to read the full review.
5. EV Video: Fully Charged
The super cheap solar-powered car is finally here! Who wants a cheap, simple EV that charges itself by the sun? Oh and you also want some moss on the dashboard? Well, you're in luck.
