An EV will cost you less over the lifetime of ownership
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.
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 additional savings.
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.
The ACT government provides generous incentives for switching to an electric vehicle. Enjoy savings on stamp duty, registration and interest free loans.
Owners of EVs in the ACT can benefit from various incentives
As a result, the ACT has some of the most generous incentives in the country for electric vehicles which includes free registration, stamp duty exemptions, interest free loans and access to transit lanes.
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.
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.
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.
