Lower Cost

An EV will cost you less over the lifetime of ownership

An EV owner saves around 70% on running and maintenance costs each year

While the initial purchase price may be higher, when you consider the lower running and maintenance costs and the other benefits and incentives, the lifetime ownership cost of an EV will be less when compared to petrol cars.

A lower cost option - good for you, good for the environment

01.
Save on fuel costs

EVs provide 70% lower running costs and with the rising costs of fuel, these savings are likely to increase. Further, charge in off-peak time and use solar for further savings. 

02.
Save on maintenance costs

Less moving parts and an enclosed motor means less maintenance and repair costs. There are no spark plugs, leads, air filters or timing belts. Fewer liquids to maintain means no coolants, filters and pumps. Longer lasting brakes and tyres. 

03.
Government incentives

The ACT government provides generous incentives for switching to an electric vehicle. Enjoy savings on stamp duty, registration and interest free loans.

Save with smart financing

While electric vehicles provide savings over the long term, the initial purchasing costs can seem prohibitive. That’s why we’ve partnered with Plenti to provide ActewAGL customers with low rates.

Save with smart charging

When it comes to charging, you can plug straight into your wall or plug into a smart charger. A smart charger is 3x faster than a wall plug, and allows you to charge your car during times when energy rates are lower – saving up to half the cost of recharging.

Save with lower energy costs

ActewAGL has special offers on energy plans for owners of EVs. Benefit from savings across your entire household electricity use with our evEnergy Saver Plan.
