• How much does it cost to drive an Electric Car?

    Typically you can charge your battery for less than $400 per year. In Ontario, the price of power is determined by ‘Time of Use’ - so you pay more when electricity is in high demand and pay less when it's in low demand. Charging at night or on the weekend when demand is lowest is best for the environment and usually cheaper in most jurisdictions.Here are three time-of-use scenarios to charge the Nissan LEAF in Ontario for a 100 km trip:

    • Peak: 11.7¢/kwh = $3.00 per 100km
    • Mid Peak: 10.0¢/kwh = $2.56 per 100km
    • Off Peak: 06.5¢/kwh = $1.66 per 100km
