**Introduction:** Electric vehicles (EVs) have gained immense popularity due to their eco-friendliness and cost-efficiency. One important aspect of owning an EV is calculating the cost of charging it. To simplify this process, we’ve created an easy-to-use online calculator.

**Formula:** To calculate the charge cost, we use the following formula: Charge Cost = Distance (miles) × Efficiency (kWh/mile) × Electricity Rate ($/kWh)

**How to Use:**

- Enter the distance you plan to drive in miles in the “Distance” field.
- Input the efficiency of your EV in kWh/mile in the “Efficiency” field.
- Specify your electricity rate in $/kWh in the “Electricity Rate” field.
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- The estimated charge cost will be displayed in the “Charge Cost” field.

**Example:** Suppose you plan to drive 100 miles in your EV with an efficiency of 4 kWh/mile, and your electricity rate is $0.15 per kWh.

- Distance: 100 miles
- Efficiency: 4 kWh/mile
- Electricity Rate: $0.15 per kWh By clicking “Calculate,” you will find that the charge cost is $60.00.
