What you have to factor in Mike is the running cost for fuel, which for a BEV is 2p per mile or so, compare that to a fossil car costing around 15p per mile.
Even if the Tesla Model 3 works out £40k, if your doing the miles it's going to be cheaper overall to run than a fossil car costing £20k or so.
£40K!! 😳😳. That would mean annual road tax of £310.......Wouldn’t it?
The difference of 13pp per mile to run in fuel, and a price difference of 20K to buy the car. You would have to do around 155,000 miles before being better off, minus the road tax at £310 a year. My 4x4 pick up truck that can tow 2.5 tonne, carry a tonne in the back and five people is £100 a year less to tax.
Now I am not working, apart from running a small business which takes up about 6 days a month, my annual mileage is around 10k a year. It would take around 15 years for me to break even! Plus I would have spent over £4.5K in road tax.
Perhaps I am not getting the maths correctly, I must confess it was never a strong point of mine.......Unless there are ££££ signs in front! 😀👍
I am all for alternative power, totally, but it is going to be a long, long time before a sensibly priced BEV is produced, let alone one that can do more than tramp up and down a motorway or go to the shops.
If I had any intention of buying BEV in the near future, which I haven’t, Tesla would not be on my top 6 list anyway.
The ICE power private vehicle is going to be with us for a very, very long time yet, whether that Petrol or Diesel.
Not ALL Newts get p**sed.
