Should I charge my electric car every night?

“You need not charge every night. The average distance driven per day is 37 miles/59.5 km, falling well within the driving range on a charge of the latest models.”

Range anxiety is the fear electric car drivers feel when they think the battery in their car will not be able to cover the driving distance, becoming the biggest barrier that discourages people from making the switch to go electric.

Most people, in reality, drive 37 miles/59.5 km  a day on average. Many of the latest new electric cars can complete a range of over 200 miles(322 km) on a single charge , which means these vehicles can easily cover daily driving. Most electric car owners charge their cars at home overnight. In fact, people with regular driving habits need not charge the battery fully every night. And automakers provide electric car batteries that hold their charge for long, allowing you to skip plug-ins for a few nights. Plus, there are more charging stations available outside your home than expected, so you can easily find one when your car needs a recharge. In short, there is absolutely no need to worry that your car might stop in the middle of the road even if you did not charge your battery last night.
