2022, after two years of pandemic and a war that broke out in the heart of Europe, brought i skyrocketing fuel prices and there are not a few Spaniards who have decided to switch to electric cars - or will soon. But how much does it cost to recharge a car in Spain? How are we compared to the rest of Europe?
Helping us answer these questions is a new study from Switcher.ie, which has revealed the cost of charging an EV in Europe from the cheapest to the most expensive countries. We thus discover that the Top 10 of the cheapest countries sees, starting from the bottom, Montenegro, Hungary, Albania, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey, Serbia, Georgia, Kosovo and the Netherlands. In the Netherlands in particular, 100 km cost an average of just 0,80 euros, with a average cost of top-up of 2,74 euros.
Among the 10 most expensive countries we have Romania, Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Spain, Spain in fourth place, Germany, Belgium and finally Denmark. In our country it has been calculated that to travel 100 km by electric car you need an average of 5,54 euros, the average cost of a single recharge is 18,89 euros. In Germany the average cost is 19,89 euros, in Belgium 20,48 euros, but Denmark is the most expensive country ever: an average of 27,65 euros is spent on top-ups.
As we always remember, the cost of top-ups (both public and private) can vary greatly from type of contract we have. If we use pay-as-you-go tariffs at the columns, the costs can be really high, the distributors instead aim to make you get monthly subscriptions with "reduced" tariffs, only in this way can you really save something on top-ups. At home, on the other hand, it is good to stipulate convenient contracts, perhaps designed specifically for EVs.
