Tesla Model S Fuel Cost

Posted: 27th May 2013 by admin in Uncategorized

My driving style averages around 330wh per mile, or ~3 miles per kWh. Electricity in my area is $0.0749 per kWh net, or $0.1176 per kWh gross (including all delivery charges, fees, taxes, etc). So the car costs about $0.1176 x 0.33kWh = $0.0389 per mile to drive. Multiply that by about 1300 miles I drive each month, total monthly bill comes out to $0.0389 x 1300 = $50.57. No other maintenance is required.

My Infiniti FX50S gets 16mpg. At $4.00 per gallon for gas, it costs $0.25 per mile in fuel, plus other maintenance costs.
