You can make stats up to support anything you want. Here's a fact -
Since we bought our M3P we have paid $432 (as of today) to charge our car. The car has 9,688 miles on it. Easy math shows that is $4.50 per 100 miles. This is with the performance version of the car running 20 inch wheels that is driven like a performance car. In other words it is the least efficient version of the car you can buy. MOST EV drivers are WAY more conservative than we are with their car on how they drive it. So we are the outlier on the HIGH side.
Now, if you have solar panels (growing trend in the US) then your cost go even further down.
- Edit - After reading the article it's even worse than I thought. Not once did they advise on what cars they were using in their test. Tell me one reputable "study" that doesn't advise one a critical piece of info like that. Sure, take the absolute worse EV and compare it to the absolute best ICE and maybe things get close. But look at average vs average and it's not even close. Another one that I have to LOL about is they equated nearly 25% of the cost to charge an EV as the "cost of the chargers". This study was done in 2021. Charges for ALL EV's were FREE. Let me say it again. Cost of all EV chargers was FREE to the buyer of the car. Tesla was the first to remove the free charger in 2022 and if you want to buy one it's $200 bucks (one time fee). Just a couple of easy to spot issues with this so called study.
I'm not going to argue the pro's and cons of EV's with a bunch of gas lovers (I'm one of them) but just be careful what trash you read. Yahoo seems to be one of the worst sources for info these days which is saying something with the current state of our media....
