    In Michigan the insurance rate for EVs is triple that of a gas car and double that of EV rates in other states. That alone makes EVs in Michigan more expensive than gas cars. Need to pressure the state congress to reduce those rates.

    when you are presenting costs that are in the tens of thousands you really don't need to mention the numbers after the decimal point ... for example, just round to $63,180 which will make it easier for you to articulate, but more importantly will cut the monotony that the listener has to endure

    Don't forget in your cost of ownership to include the increase in equity in the vehicle, if you're making payments. You paid $8k in principle over those 12 months, depreciation will eat some of that, but it still lowers your cost of ownership substantially.

    This was a good honest review. I did my own math for a Cybertruck purchase, and found that the total cost of ownership on a Cybertruck over 10 years will not exceed what my actual costs were for a 10 year cost of ownership of my VW GTI. It's just the up front buying costs of an EV, rather than the distributed cost of owning, fueling, and maintaining a gas vehicle. Some people just can't afford an 800/mo car payment for the first 6 years.

    Add to that the fact that the RAV4's 31 mpg would likely be on the highway (when you're doing the Supercharger) and probably closer to 21 mpg in the city (when you're fueling through your home and more fuel efficient with driving), your fuel savings were probably much greater.

He charged his car half 8,000 miles with Super Charger and the other half 8,000 miles with home charging. He saved nearly 900 dollars total and the gas price in LA now is well over 4 dollars per gallon so ev will save lotta money in long term

    you are escaping State and federal road use taxes that will need to be addressed as EV's become more common. Allocation for those your savings on gas will decline drastically especially as it is forecast that Ca will be facing increasing energy costs.

    Good comparison but you left out some other things. You spent 63k for that car, if you get similar gas car you would pay about half of that. So you save 600 per year on gas, it would take you 50 years to make up the 30k that you spent on the Tesla. Taking out, say maintenance around 15k, you still have 15k to make up, which is 25 years.

    Want cheap? Nissan Leaf, 9000, 700 insurance, 300 for 15,000 miles electricity. Done. battery is 85% and covers everything in the city, second car is our little Mazda for long trips. Don’t worry I’m buying a Tesla , just not yet, waiting for the massive price drops inbound in one or two years as competition closes in. it’s a gamble the old leaf, but have a track record of insane reliability. Discount the early models with the shit battery chem. Buy 2015 onwards. I so wish the model 3 had a hatch like the Y though.

    This is no way cheaper than a Rav4 when comparing total cost (sale price, payments, gas, insurance, maintenance, repairs). The Model Y is less expensive on gas and maintenance but it's more expensive in every other category. Compare the model Y to a competitor like the BMW X3 xDrive30e.

    You left out the power lost during charging. The power that the car says you used is not what came out of the outlet. "Unlike conventionally fueled vehicles, electric vehicles experience a loss of energy during “refueling,” with an energy loss of about 16% from the wall power to the battery during charging"

    I don't consider the amount down and payments as a cost.....If you could sell the car for 95% of the value then those monies come back and didn't cost. Payments and down payments I consider only on the depreciation part. I didn't just buy a $50K car....I am paying a rental of about 10K to drive it a few years.

    I'll just buy used gasoline or diesel car (the engines from around 2000-2007 used to be solid enough, especially TDI), which in my country costs around 1120-2400 euro. Yes, some potential repairs there, but usually not that much if you're careful and avoid the usual traps (Audi, Volkswagen) and stick to the brand that are good and less popular (Seat, Skoda, Peugeot, FIAT, old Volvo). Yes, I'll be polluting the environment. And I don't give a fuck. Let those who CAN AFFORD IT worry about the environment.
