Unfortunately it's not so simple, as the answer depends on your own setup and what you actually want from a charger.

As a ball park figure you'd be looking at 5-700 for a cheap charger and an easy install. Rising up to anything between 1500-2000 if it's a difficult job with a more premium model.

It's certainly worthwhile with a plug in hybrid.

Some people buy PHEVs, never charge them and then complain about their poor fuel economy.

I charged mine for quite a few months with the granny when I first got it, but it's not ideal really safety wise so got a hypervolt.

Plenty on Amazon such as:


It has to be a 'smart' type as the Wallbox above is.

An eelectrician will need to oo the install and should do a free survey first, since depending on the type of supply you have other parts maybe required eg PEN protection and/or an earth rod.

I charged my 2017 GTE on a 7kw box I previously used for my Leaf on a 5p, 4hr tariff from Octopus so it cost just 30p/day for upto 25miles (summer).
