Great ride! I think you’ll be quite pleased with your EV selection when you start road tripping up north! The cost of charging your car can depend on a variety of factors, such as the time of day and what type of charger you use.
Here’s what we know about how much it costs to charge an electric car in Ontario:
  • The typical electric vehicle battery costs about **$0.78 a day **to charge at night. A plug-in hybrid costs about $1.92 a day when you factor in the cost of electricity _and _gasoline.
  • Per year, it will cost the average driver less than $300 to charge their EV. A plug-in hybrid driver will pay closer to $700.
  • Many Level 2 charging stations are free-to-use. As far as the pay-per-use stations, they’ll cost you about $1.00 per hour, or $2.50 per charge.
  • Level 3 fast-charging stations with direct current usually charge by the minute. This evens out to about $15 per hour.
