If you are trying to minimise the cost of ownership, or even cost per mile, I’m sure there are much cheaper solutions than a PHEV but I’m not sure how BIK would skew the calculations as it did not apply to me.

Quite a lot! As an example my previous car was a Volvo V70 D4 SE Lux, and I save over £200 a month in BIK alone with the 2019 4HS. Based on my usage pattern when unleaded fuel and electricity costs are taken in to account, I save £25-30 a month on fuel running costs.

So combined it's similar to a £5k pa pay rise.

Are there electricity plans for the home that are better suited to charging a car overnight - this isn't something i've ever needed to look into before, but it seems sensible to consider?



Yes, Ecotricity, has discounts for its customers on the Rapid chargers at motorway service areas etc. Octopus Energy has a specific EV tariff and, of course, the standard Economy 7 will save you money depending on how much you use the higher day time rate.

I use EDF 20:20 tariff as I am rarely in during the day and the "cheap" rate is longer than Economy 7 - 9pm to 7am and all day weekends. :mrgreen:
