Hi there,
New to the group as I haven't yet got my vehicle but looking to purchase shortly.
For those in the UK, which energy supplier do you use and on what plan to get the best value?
I've had a quick look and my mind is spinning with the numbers.

Electricity to charge is generally free in Scotland. But if you are not, then go for a supplier that varies cost by time. I think it is about 5p per kWh after midnight up until breakfast (as opposed to about 19p on an average daily rate). The car can be programmed to charge at that time. Have a look at "Octopus".

I am with British Gas, when I received my MX30 I switched to a peak and off peak electricity tariff with them, so from 00:00 to 05:00 the cost is 6.250 per kwh, I charge mine during this time and from around 1/4 charge in the car to fully charged it costs around £2.40, the tariff is Electric Drivers June 2022, peak rates are 22.654 pkw and a daily standing charge of 25.416, I have duel fuel my gas rates are 3.333 pkw and 17.406 standing charge per day. But, a month before my car was ready to pick up I had just changed my tariff and they gave me a 10% loyalty discount and I would have been paying a flate electricity rate of 18.746. With the lower off peak rate versus my old 10% discount it sort of evens things out, but over the long term I am hoping to have some small gains. Good luck with finding a supplier that works for you.
