How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Car?
Updated June 2022
Calculating the Cost to Charge Your Electric Car is Easy:
1. Find your most recent utility bill to obtain your cost per kWh. The average rate in the U.S. is $0.1269 per kWh (December 2019), which is the cost we use.*
2. Find your electric vehicle battery size using the selector tool below or the vehicle manufacturer’s website.
3. Multiply the electric rate from #1 with your battery capacity from #2. This will be an estimate of the cost to fully charge your electric vehicle if it’s completely empty.
*Battery sizes were obtained using manufacturer websites. This does not take into account the usable battery percentage; it may cost less to charge your vehicle from empty to full if the usable battery percentage is less than the battery size.
Or simply enter the make and model of the electrical vehicle and the cost will be on the bottom of each EVSE. See EVSE Selector Tool below.
