Is electric driving cheaper?

Due to the expensive technology, electric cars are generally even more expensive to purchase compared to a comparable petrol car. But the difference is gradually narrowing, partly due to the continuing decline in battery prices. Production costs of lithium-ion batteries have fallen by about 90% since 2010.

On the other hand, you do benefit from all kinds of financial benefits when switching to an electric car. For example, electric driving is cheaper because electricity costs much less than petrol and diesel. With an electric car you can save a lot on your mileage costs. Here’s a calculation example:

Tax advantage and subsidy

In addition to the low mileage costs, an electric car is also cheaper to maintain . To further encourage the purchase of an electric car, there are additional tax benefits for private individuals, lease drivers and entrepreneurs, which further reduce the total car costs. Think of the exemption from road tax, a low addition and environmental investment deduction. Read all about the tax benefits for electric cars here .

In addition, private individuals can apply for a subsidy for the purchase of an electric passenger car. Entrepreneurs can apply for a subsidy for an electric company car. Read all subsidy schemes for electric cars here .
