    Is there a standard price for a fast charger or does it totally depend on the different manufacturers? Don’t really want to be paying circa £600+ for one.

    Different suppliers, different ratings, different prices but several of the manufacturers on the scheme offer free or subsidised chargers I believe

    bmw i3/i3s i know the charger is included as that is the ev i was interested in.

    as far as i know the evs on the scheme include the home charger at no cost.

    but a quick call to motability ref the model your interested in should confirm.

    If you can get one cheap enough it’s worth having but a 3-pin external socket will do just as well, it will be slower but overnight charging should still see you to 100%

    I have been studying home charger over the past 12 months, the Chargermaster as subsidies by the dealerships has very poor reviews and customer services, for PHEV you only get the 16 amp model for £250 – £300.

    The earlier Rolec again had some issues with poor quality relay, hopefully the later ones are better.

    The Podpoint has come out with very good reviews and reliability £229 for a 16 amp teether or non teethered and £279 for the 32 amp version, I am going to go for the 32 amp to save upgrading the charger in the future.

    As regards charging points you can always sign up to Chargermaster/BP to use there network.

    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    If Motability put some of it huge reserves and subsidies the Chargemaster monthly membership fee’s,  I think its around £7.00 per month, It would encourage and help Motability customers into EV vehicles.
