ESB ecar need to rethink the announced charging plans, the €17 a month fee along 30c per 1 minute FCP usage will kill EV sales and push people away from EV

    This is Ireland , the fee will increase to an amount that will replace the tax got from Petrol and Diesel, the monthly fee will increase as the numbers of EV's Increases . Eventually driving an electrical car will be more expensive than petrol or diesel . Monthly fee whether you use the car or not , queues at charging points , and range anxiety 25 minute charge time, doesn't seem like a good deal to me !!

    I really think this is bad thing. It will force any new buyer to re-think buying an EV car or even getting a new one.

    I bought a ev in 02/15,a BMW I3. I would not mind to pay for the electricity used, but I object to the 17.00 Euro monthly fee, as I am charging mostly at home. As the car is mostly used for short trips, I might not even use 17.00 diesel per month. between 30 cents/min electricity and 17.00 Euro fee par month, more people will rethink buying evs.
