Electric cars - EVerything you need to know

Electric cars are becoming more and more popular, as people become increasingly interested in saving money on fuel and being environmentally friendly.

While electric cars have been around for a while, they have typically been less affordable than traditional petrol-powered vehicles. However, this is changing, as electric cars are becoming more affordable for the average consumer.

In addition, electric cars have many other benefits, such as being much cheaper to operate and maintain than petrol-powered cars. Electric cars also emit less tailpipe emissions than fuel-powered cars, with many consumers considering EVs an environmentally friendly option.

As more people become interested in electric cars, it is likely that their popularity will continue to grow. If you’re new to the world of rechargeable cars, we have all the information you need to make the decision to switch.

Frequently asked questions

on an electric car subscription

Yes, all electric vehicle subscriptions come with a slow (trickle) charger that can be connected to a general-purpose outlet, or household power point.
Charging your car with these chargers can be slow but they can safely charge the battery all day, or night without damaging it.
Most feature automatic cycles that turn off the charger when the battery is at its optimum capacity.
While home charging may be cheaper and easier to use day-to-day, it won't always serve you on longer journeys.
Like a phone, your car will need to be charged after a certain amount of use. So for long trips, you'll need to turn to the growing number of public charging stations to recharge.
The Electric Vehicle Council provides a map of charging stations across Australia. While recharging is not the same as refuelling, it is important to note however, that some charging stations may require a fee in the same way that you pay for petrol.
If you subscribe to an electric vehicle and run out of charge when you’re not home, you will have access to 24/7 Roadside Assistance Australia-wide.
As a carbar subscriber, you will have unlimited callouts for flat batteries (charges), key lock-outs, flat tyre changes, breakdowns, towing and more.
An electric car subscription excludes tolls, infringements and home chargers.
Costs to buy and install home chargers vary depending on where you live, which charger you purchase, and whether it is hardwired to your home or portable.
JET Charge is our preferred partner, offering globally recognised turnkey electric car charging infrastructure.
