I am still looking for at the least one reason for converting a car to electric drive. Please, can somebody here

**help me to find one**?

Because, If I am calculating this "example situation" right...

- Gasoline costs $3.90 per gallon and a car gets 30 miles to the gallon, then the cost per mile is
**11 cents per mile for gasoline**.

- Electricity in North Carolina is about 8 cents per kilowatt-hour right now (4 cents if you use time-of-use billing and recharge at night). That means that for a full recharge, it costs $1 (or 50 cents with time-of-use billing). The cost per mile is therefore
**2 cents per mile**, or 1 cent with time-of-use.

**+**

for this car runs about $2,000. The batteries will last 20,000 miles or so, for about**Battery replacement****+10 cents per mile**.

**+**

on the beginning. It is about $4.000 If am I calculating exactly (without batteries). If you will drive 80,000 miles with this conversion than will be the price for about*Car conversion***+20 cents per mile**.

**+**

on it.*Hours of work*

The cost per mile is fully**22 cents per mile for electricity**.

**So, If I will let my car run on gasoline the price per mile will be twice (11 cents counter to 22 cents) cheaper on comparison with electricity.**

... I can not see any advantage of conversion.

Thank you for all new informations about this dilemma.
