  1. I drive almost 50k miles in a year and now have a Tesla model y and it’s the best decision I have made on a car. For me the gas savings per mile is significantly higher where the higher price of an EV still seems like a deal lol. I think I have saved almost $5k this year.

  2. Yet we exclude these users preferred vehicles from incentives.

    These drivers want power, luxury and huge range. Cars and trucks like that are generally excluded from incentives because “the rich can afford it”. This is true, but it’s the poor that can’t afford the climate damage.

  3. As someone who has always lived in an urban/suburban area in the south east, I’ve averaged 30k/yr for at least 18 of the 22 years I’ve been driving. The fuel cost savings — and I came from diesels which were always super efficient for mpgs — was north of $3k/yr back when diesel was $2.85/gallon and gas even cheaper. The savings have only increased with inflation.

    I think the smartest thing I did was get solar when I got the EV. I’ve had many EVs since the solar went up, but it offsets the energy use of my electric fleet by 80-90% every year. Anyone willing to cut down some trees could do what I did.

    The savings are huge, and that alone will sway this demographic. Doing it for emissions reasons is not going to win most anyone in this demographic over.

  4. I think the “super gas users” would definitely appreciate EVs if they tried. those people currently do a bunch of oil changes per year, visit gas stations all the time, have maintenance issues, etc. an EV would save them all of that time and hassle. not to mention the road experience. spending time in an EV is just nicer. as long as there are reliable chargers along their routes, the experience with an EV is superior.
