Frequently asked questions about electric SUVs

Just like a car running out of petrol, an EV running out of charge will simply come to a stop. You’ll have to call for a recovery vehicle to tow you to an available charging point — it’s not quite as easy as bringing a jerry can along.
Keeping your electric car on charge at home overnight may be wise if you’re using it often and for longer journeys, particularly if you’re unsure when the next available charging point may be.
You can get a discount on the price of brand new low-emission vehicles through a grant the government gives to vehicle dealerships and manufacturers. This is called the Plug-in Car Grant.

You do not need to ask your dealer about the grant nor do you have to apply for it – the dealer will include the value of the grant in the vehicle’s price.

The grant means you can get up to a maximum of £2,500 off the price of an electric car – for EVs priced under £35,000. This grant was £3,000 for vehicles under £50,000 but was changed in March 2021 when the government announced it wanted to target less expensive models and allow the scheme’s funding to go further.
