The cost of EV ownership is considerable, and Mathews Honda of Paris, Texas is here to help. If you have been thinking about the possibilities of owning an EV, there are several benefits to be considered. When looking at the average cost of electricity/fuel over a distance of 15,000 miles traveled, the EV wins out with a $546 cost versus $1,255 for fuel for the same distance. Right off the bat the cost of owning an electric vehicle is clearly lower, and the benefits bleed into maintenance cost as well. According to automakers maintenance recommendations, the cost of EV maintenance is $619 vs $949 for the maintenance of a fuel powered vehicle.
You might also be asking, how much does it cost to charge an electric vehicle? Natural question, and it does vary from location to location, and varies by time of day. National average cost of gasoline is around $3.70 for regular, and electric charging can cost anywhere from 7 cents per kWh to 43 cents per kWh - and does work out to be the cheaper type of vehicle to keep fueled/charged up. Fuel is a commodity that continues to rise in price as supply reduces, and owning an electric vehicle is your pathway to savings.
