But if it ends up sitting unused in your driveway for days on end, there is a way you can make some money back - by renting it out.
We’ve teamed up with a new peer-to-peer car sharing service called Hiyacar. Using an app (so no car keys to lose…) to search, book and drive.
The range includes petrol cars but the company says the number of EVs is growing fast. To find out more, including how to get £20 off your first drive, read our interview with Hiya on our blog.
Alternatively, it’s also a way of hiring an EV to try one out.
