Electric Vehicle (EV) Cost of Ownership  

Electric vehicles offer several advantages over traditional gas-powered cars. They're cheaper to operate and maintain, and they emit no pollutants. These factors make EVs an attractive option for consumers who are looking to save money and reduce their impact on the environment.

According to Consumer Reports, EVs can save drivers thousands of dollars throughout their ownership.

The report also found that EVs have much lower running costs than gas cars. For example, the cost of charging an EV is about one-third the cost of gasoline. EVs also have cheaper maintenance costs, as they have fewer moving parts and do not require tune-ups or oil changes.

Fuel Savings

The biggest cost savings from owning an EV come from fuel savings. EVs are much more efficient than gas cars, so they use less energy to travel the same distance. It means that you'll spend less money on fuel for your EV's lifetime.

Maintenance Savings

As mentioned above, EVs have cheaper maintenance costs than gas cars. It is because they have fewer moving parts and do not require tune-ups or oil changes. EVs also have regenerative braking, which helps extend the life of the brakes. On average, drivers save up to approximately $4,600.


Another factor to consider is depreciation. EVs tend to hold their value better than gas cars, so you can expect to get more money back when you sell your EV.
