State of charge: The long answer

In the context of car-related terminology, "state of charge" refers to the amount of electrical energy stored in an electric vehicle's battery. It indicates the percentage of battery capacity remaining and helps drivers understand how much driving range they have before the battery needs recharging.

The higher the state of charge, the more distance the electric vehicle can cover. For UK drivers, being aware of the state of charge is crucial to plan their journeys accordingly, ensuring they have sufficient battery power to reach their destination or locate nearby charging stations if needed.
