I'd like to know how much it costs in electricity to charge a electric vehicle, especially for people who regularly use one for commuting, etc. v. how much you would be spending on gasoline instead.

My Volt added about $10-15 a month to my electric bill. I had calculated that it should add $20, but it never got that high. It replaced a car that used about $150-200 a month in gas.

It depends on where your from and I don't know since your location has been hidden !!!

In some states, customers are allowed to charge their vehicle during the utility's off-peak hours between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. at a discounted rate. As an added benefit, the entire house gets the discount, not just the car.

Depending on the rate plan and time of year, these rates varies between 6.4 cents to 4.6 cents per kWh.

Time of use rates will cost between $16.00 to $24.00 a month by charging during off-peak hours.
