Check your electricity pricing. This will be charged per kWh.
Then check your car's battery capacity. Work out how many kWh's and then it's easy to get a rough idea of price.

If you pay 15p/kWh and you have a 10kWh battery for example that's a simple 0.15*10=£1.50

On-peak at 15p/kWh my car costs about £1.12 to charge.
Off-peak at 5p/kWh it costs about 37p to charge.

So depending on when it is charged, between 5.6p/mile and 1.8p/mile (assuming 20 miles range)

Off peak on octopus its 13p per kWh on my current tarrif. If you are on the Go tarrif it's less than half of that you need a smart meter though which I am waiting to be installed.

To fully charge my car costs £2.80 ish for around a hundred miles or range 2.8p a mile.

Ultimately your charging cost is based on your tarrif, how efficiently you drive and how many miles you do.
