Electric Cars in Portugal

Has anyone taken the brave step of acquiring an electric car in Portugal. Be very interesting to know your experience on cost, ease of recharging and range available.

I would like to make the switch but concerned about the range available (range anxiety 🤒), the accessibility of charging points and the time needed to recharge when away from home. Also, very hard to find any information on the real cost to recharge from home and from a charging point.

Another option is a hybrid and again, it would be very interesting to know real life experience in Portugal with such cars.

My current car is a 2 litre diesel with a range of 1,030 km on a full tank and I estimate the fuel cost to be €0.082 per km. Plus when I need more fuel, it is readily available and a 10 minute job to fill up. 

I imagine I will need to make a lot of compromises to be greener!
