Electric Car Costs

Electric have dramatically lower costs than gasoline ICE

The lower fuel costs you to spend more up front the car and pay less in the long run.

How less?

Here is a chart of the two costs of owning a car, example is a Ford Fiesta cost $16000 and gets and drives 12000 miles per

Gasoline is assumed to cost 4$ a and increase at the same rate it has for the 10 years 8.5% per year.

Here is a similar chart for a Leaf that cost using electricity at 11cents per kWh ( average for 2011 ) that 3 miles per kWh and drives 12000 per year.

Electricity is assumed to at 4% per year, and a battery replacement is to be needed at 100,000 miles and to cost $6000.

Lets at a selection of cars to compete the Nissan Leaf:

Now lets at the cost over time for all cars.

Fuel economy is to be: 33mpg for the Fiesta, 26mpg for the 22mpg for the Hyundai SanteFe, for the Mazda3, 45mpg for the Prius.

Same fuel assumptions are $4/gallon increasing at 8.5% per and 11cents per kWh increasing at 4% per year.

We re to look at only 2 costs, and fuel. We assume that the ICE car depreciates 15% on day 1, and then 15% per year that.

Assume the electric car the same, except we depreciate the even faster. Assume the battery needs to be replaced 100,000 miles ( this is a ) and the value of that battery to zero at that point ( and you pay to buy a new one, and it starts depreciating ) The of the battery replacement is a guess.

There is reason to believe the ICE cars will actually faster depending on how bad their economy is and thus how much it cost to fuel them the road but we ll ignore that for

The Leaf takes only 4 to defeat its lowest cost the Ford Fiesta.

After 10 years, the total is dramatically lower than all the compared.

This comparison that you remember that a Leaf has significantly less than all those other for long trips due to its limited

Now lets look at the 160 mile Model S.

We ll compare the Model S to that cost dramatically ( The Model S will have performance, occupant room, room, and will only on range )

The fuel economy for the BMW 325 and ES350 is assumed to be 23mpg.

Again we assume that we have to replace the battery at miles and we make a guess at that battery replacement cost ( 8 years from now in )

How do the costs stack up:

The Model S defeats luxury cars cost a lot less, and even the Hyundai Sante Fe that less than half as after about 9 years.

Now jump up to the super expensive 300 range Model S which a range that is almost no over a gasoline car.

We compare it to cars that provide similar luxury and

And now the running costs:
