How Much To Charge An Electric Vehicle?

How Much To Charge An Electric Vehicle?

 

Canadian Governments have proposed new regulations that will require at least 20 percent of new vehicles sold in Canada to be zero emission (Electric Vehicles) by 2026, at least 60 percent by 2030, and 100 percent by 2035.  With These new implementations proposed it has many wondering, how much does it cost to charge an electric vehicle? This can greatly vary on your electricity rates (which will vary from region to region), and electric vehicle battery size. We at Traditional Electric have broken down the way to calculate the cost to charge an electric vehicle, as well as provided the costs to charge most EV vehicles on the market given the average electricity rate for Alberta in January 2023. So How Much Does It Cost To Charge An Electric Vehicle?

 

To figure out the charge for your exact situation you will need a few things:

  1. The cost of electricity for your area
  2. Your battery size in your Electric Vehicle
  3. The range for a full charge on your Electric Vehicle
The Cost of Electricity

To calculate the cost, EV owners should grab their most recent electricity bill and look for the cost per kilowatt hour, or kWh. This cost can range from $0.08 to $0.35, but Alberta’s 2023 average rate is $0.135.

Electric Vehicle Charging Cost Formula

The formula for the cost of charging an electric car is:

Cost to Charge = (CR / RPK) x CPK

  • CR is a car range
  • RPK is the range per kWh
  • CPK is the cost per kWh

 

Charging Your Electric Vehicle At Home Example

Example: Tesla Model X Plaid

Tesla Model X Plaid
  1. Review your electric bills to determine the cost per kWh.

                                                   For this example, we will be using Alberta’s 2023 average electricity rate of 13.5 cents per KWH (CPK)

  1. Fixture out what battery size your electric vehicle has in Kilo Watt hours (kWh).

                                                   The Telsa Model X Plaid has a kWh Battery of 95

  1. Figure out how many kilometers your electric vehicle averages per kWh.

                                                 The Range of the Tesla Model X Plaid is 455 KM per full charge

                                                 KM per kWh = Range in KM/KWH Battery  

                                               KM per kWh RPK 4.79=455/95

4. Plug Numbers into the formula:

                                                Cost to Charge = (CR / RPK) x CPK

                                               $12.83 = (455/4.79) X $0.135

 

Here is the list of some of the more common Electric Vehicle charging costs based on Alberta’s 13.5 cents per kWh average for 2023
