Updated: Jul 9


The cost of charging electric vehicles around the world has been revealed, with the UK coming 10th in a list of 50 countries ranked from most to the least expensive according to new research from Uswitch.com, the comparison and switching service.


To calculate the results, the research looked at the cost per KWh for 50 different countries, the average mileage per driver and miles per full charge, revealing the most expensive country to charge an EV is Denmark, followed by Germany and Belgium.

The table below shows the top 10 countries by EV charging cost, giving the annual cost per vehicle associated with travelling 10,000 miles:

Sarah Broomfield, energy expert at Uswitch, said: “The use of electric vehicles has clear environmental benefits but for many consumers, the choice to move to EVs can be hindered by perceptions about how much it will cost to charge.


“This research shows that, while the costs are not insignificant, the UK is in a strong position compared to countries like Denmark where the price of electricity makes the cost of a charge so much higher.


“Of course, as well as the cost savings of rapid charging points, we also encourage consumers to regularly review their own energy tariffs to ensure they’re getting the best deal possible.”
