So I started to look into how much it will cost me to use a model 3.
Just looking at my numbers...
I get about 48MPG with my prius. My gas is now about $2.70/Gal where I live.
My electric with taxes and such is about 0.22/kWh.
So with the prius I get about 5.6 cents/mile.
If I get a Model 3 and charge at home assuming about 260Wh/Mile then it will cost me about 5.7cents/mile.
So other than getting another ICE car off the road and the coolness factor... The gas savings, for me, is a push!
I might be changing my mind about a Tesla.. :-(
is 260Wh/Mile about right? This is what I've seen on videos and some forums...
