    How much do you believe the payments on your new electric car will cost you?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Owned a BEV for over a year and there's more things
      >save 15 minutes per week from gas trips
      >no range anxiety because car is charged every night
      >time and money saved from no oil changes or other maintanence except tire rotations
      There's a reason almost everyone who switches to BEVs sticks with them, and ICEV market share is decreasing worldwide. People rather have a quiet car that is less work to maintain.

      The same as a new rube goldberg machine.

      Not OP.
      I have solar and a battery, and get paid 12c per kw I sell back to the grid.
      So if I funnel that into my 50kw EV rather than selling it, it costs me $6 (in lost revenue) to completely charge it, which will go for 350km.

      And for the record I ain't some hippy gay that has solar/battery/EV to save the earth, it's purely a money saving thing.

        Honest question, with the cost of setup, maintenance, etc how worthwhile are all those things, compared to what they earn

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          This is Australia btw.
          Rebates and discounts and shit made it worth it for me. I bought the solar and battery through my power company, I did this for three reasons.
          1) Accountability, so incase it fricks up and burns my house down or should I need to make a warranty claim I'll have better luck than some random company that pops up on TV ads and shit.
          2) They offer a monthly payment plan with no additional cost, no account keeping fee or anything, literally just divided the total payment via X months, and that was it. I mean I had the money there to pay for it, but this way I was able to leave it in my home loan, to reduce my monthly interest payments.
          3) The offer a 2 year feed in bonus, where they will pay 20c a kw for whatever you sell back to them (I got 4 years because I bought the panels and the battery separately)

          I got a 6.38kw solar system, with 5kw inverter in 2020 for $5,500.
          And then a 10kw battery in 2022 for $7,500.

          I crunched all the numbers extensively beforehand. Basically they will pay for themselves within the warranty period with savings. I'm earning/saving about $1,500 a year, but that will go down now that the feed in bonus has run out.

          No maintenance costs, I just wash the panels if I notice a drop in average output compared to the same time last year, etc. Only done it once but I don't really think I needed to in hindsight.

    Step 1: Learn to drive to optimize mpg
    Step 2: Get a hybrid
    Step 1 is still necessary. It's amazing how many people on this board get shit mpg even with hybrids and it's because they drive like they are some sports car racer.
    Wouldn't go full EV for another 8-10 years. Still way to early outside of California not to mention long term maintenance / parts, infrastructure and pricing. Tesla abandoning the super chargers will only make it worse outside of cali. My area alone already has so few to begin with and people are always at them so you're shit out of luck if you need a charge outside of your home in most cases.

            >talking point
            It's the truth. Utilities are going to have to start upgrading services for people beyond your standard 200 amps and upgrading neighborhood power distribution soon enough at the rate things are going.
            Because it's not just the 30 or 50 amp electric charger you have to think about. There's a push to electrify everything. Furnaces, ranges, A/C, etc.
            I've done the electrical for new homes that will completely fill a 40/80 panel with a 200 amp service. That's going to add up eventually to a lot of extra draw on the power grid.

    They are indeed for city and suburban areas.
    I'm a Bay area californian, and I don't have a car at the moment.
    Work, stores, the train station, friends and family, many scenic locations, are all within 30 minute drives.
    My apartment has EV charging for $95 a month.
    The smartest thing by far would be to just get a tesla model 3. ICE cars don't even come close, really.
    But guess what, I have my eye on a v8 mustang going for $35,000
    I have the money to spend on the car, as well as gas, insurance, and maintenance.
    But if you weren't a car enthusiast or didn't want to spend so much money, then a new EV is absolutely the way to go in my situation. There's no doubt about it.
    At the end of the day choosing a mustang GT versus a tesla model 3 isn't what will keep you poor, it just means you will have a bit more cash on hand with the later, for arguably less fun in life. But real wealth is accumulated with broader career and financial decisions.

        So he bought an entire new car to save $6k a year, which, at 25mpg and $3.70 per gallon, would mean he drives 40k miles a year for his commute. At 260 weekdays a year, that's 76 miles each way so if he tops off at work, he basically can't drive anywhere after work or risk not having the fuel to drive back to work the next day. Not that you'd have much time to drive anywhere after work with a 76 mile commute.

          Depending on how far he drives, he could have just bought a used Leaf for $6k. Its not like EVs are insanely expensive or impossible to service.
          If it needs a $4k battery swap in a few years that's still significant savings, and the price of batteries is about to crater again now that sodium ion has arrived.
