Depends how old you are and if you have any points on your license.

I get that but aren’t electrics more expensive than diesel/petrol?

If you need to ask, you shouldn't be driving one.

Just ring your insurance company/get an online quote, as you're asking a question no-one can answer for you*

As an aside, as in the last deal, I found most my local VW dealers (ended up with Vindis VW Cambridge) will match these deals. Guess cheap lease deals are being knocked out on the eGolf before the ID range land next year.


*I mean that in the nicest possible way, not in an internet snidey way. Run it through AvivaPlus, quite a quick online quote form.

Yes they are, both our Tesla's cost more & our Merc e-Hybrid, costs more than the same none electric standard model

e-Golf has a range of diddly squat

e-Golf has a range of diddly squat



150ish is easy achievable with a bit of regen/b-mode. If you are not doing any grand distances, and even if you are 100 miles between stops is perfectly reasonable.
Fair enough! Thought it was 30 mile crud.

You might've been thinking of the electric-only range for the Golf GTE hybrid.
I ran the numbers for a previous e-golf thread, so probably worth copying here in case anyone is interested (the link formatting didn't copy so let me know if you want any of the source links):

The e-golf gets approximately 4 miles per kWh. Each kWh costs 5p if charged off-peak (4 hours each night) on an Octopus EV tariff.

So the e-golf would cost approximately 1.25p per mile to run.

The average petrol/diesel car costs approximately 12p-15p per mile in fuel according to gov.uk figures.

So you save approximately 12p per mile, or to put it another way: you save approximately £1000 per 8,000 miles that you drive when compared with an average petrol/diesel engine car.

I'd imagine it's a lot different compared to your predominant driving type - much bigger savings if mostly urban, a lot less if mostly motorway/extra-urban.

To be honest it doesn't make as much difference as you think - even in an unrealistic scenario where you take the upper bound of the gov.uk fuel efficiency figures (12p per mile) and only get one-third of the number of miles per kWh (or triple the cost of electricity), you still end up in roughly the same ball park:

12p - 3.75p = 8.25p per mile saving.
(£660 saving per 8,000 miles)

Dunno, all I know is that I get twice the mpg on country roads to town ones so that's a big difference. Most modern cars would be similar I think with the small engine/turbo configurations.
