Yes. You can seek HMRC reimbursement via the Advisory Electric Rate (AER), which is currently set at 5p per mile. However, many business users prefer to take advantage of Benefit-in-Kind (BiK).

This will depend on the size of the van’s battery and where it is charged. Charging an electric vehicle at home is cheaper during off-peak times than peak times – and either option is cheaper than charging at a public access point.
