I wish!!Thanks Duncan, good info.
I presume 16KWhrs gets you around 100 KM/60 miles? (I'm still learning sorry).
If you are building for economy - that is the way to look at it!How much do you spend on gasoline in a year? Now multiply that x10 for ten years. So that is the $$ number to compare with the price of the battery pack.
People find $50 per week (whatever) for petrol, while not everybody has a chunk sitting in their bank account for a one hit battery deal. You forgot to mention charging costs as well, some countries like Australia, electricity rates are murder.How much do you spend on gasoline in a year? Now multiply that x10 for ten years. So that is the $$ number to compare with the price of the battery pack.
Yeah, great innit, think of it as fuel tax being put to work to offset the damage they cause.15k$ includes the gummint paying for half of the price.
Promotion of EVs in these early times, and a little bit better localised air quality.What utility economy or practicality is there in a C cab resto hot rod?
No Brian, and yes, its the argument for people that tell me Im still burning non-renewables in the form of coal.So you have so much PV capacity that you don't buy any energy, and the energy for the EV would have otherwise been wasted? That's unusual.
