Electricity for the electric car is more expensive than petrol, say the Germans

At the end of April, the Norwegians said that electricity for electric cars is as expensive as diesel. Now the Germans say that electricity is more expensive than petrol.

Electricity is not necessarily cheap.

If it has to come from a publicly available lightning charger, the electric car owners are often allowed to pay expensive judgments for it.

This is the conclusion of the German electricity provider Lichtblick in a new, annual report .

Electric car owners should therefore not count on their economy being protected, simply because the EU is increasingly imposing more taxes on fossil fuels and in 2035 will completely ban new petrol and diesel cars.

According to Lichtblick's figures, normal AC charging at a 22 kW charging station in public spaces now costs up to DKK 4.10 per kilowatt hour.

That is one and a half kroner more per kilowatts, than what the current in a home charger costs. Or a difference of 56 percent. It gets even wilder if you choose a fast charger.

The so-called DC charger makes charging 87 percent more expensive compared to charging from home. In an average medium-sized electric car with an electricity consumption of 22 kWh, it now costs 13.11 euros, equivalent to 97.5 kroner, to cover 100 kilometers on electricity.

In a petrol car with a consumption of 16.6 kilometers per liter costs the same distance 10.38 euros – or 77.40 kroner – in fuel.

If you look at the overall calculation – i.e. the one that takes into account maintenance costs, taxes and insurance – the electric car still wins.

According to Auto Bild, the Volkswagen Golf 7 with a combustion engine (it is also available as an electric car, ed.) is twice as expensive to keep running overall as a Volkswagen ID.3.

Something else is the depreciation. Because it hurts electric cars. New figures show that electric cars have never been worth less used than they are right now. Read more about it here .
