* EDF GoElectric 98 also has the special rate all weekend, 10 hours is based on weekday usage, Octopus Go Faster is currently an invite only Beta
Assumptions are based on the cost of a full charge (finishing battery % + 6.5% charge loss)
Some providers will require you to have a smart meter to use these tariffs
The total cost to charge assumes you took full advantage of special rate hours Avg UK Cost = 9kWh (avg UK household useage is = 8-10 kWh) * standard rate + standing charge – this will differ for your house size / usage
Range figures (to calculate cost per mile) taken from https://teslike.com/range/ and https://ev-database.uk/
