We have a Prius prime and we set it to charge at 10:00 every night - I would be shocked if this wasn’t standard with any plug- in model

My Santa Fe PHEV has a schedule I can set, I only have a level 1 charger though so it takes 10 hours.

My power bill went up by about 35 bucks a month. Granted I only charge from 7 PM to 7 AM, Monday to Friday. In order to drive about 400 KM it cost me about 6 dollars. (64 KW times 8.2 cents a KWH)

Next month I start a new job where I will be driving to work everyday. But that parking lot (like a lot of parking lots in Ontario) has free charging, so my fuel costs should go down to basically zero.

You save your money on maintenance as well. Maintenance costs are significantly cheaper on an EV. The premium I paid on my vehicle was 18,000 compared to gas model, I think the overall cost increase after rebate was 15K. Made a little cheaper because I got 0 percent financing over 7 years.

Estimates on maintenance are that save about 40 percent on maintenance. This American study (link below) has EV maintenance costs at 6 cents a mile, gas at 10 cents a mile. You would save about 6,400 on maintenance if you drove the vehicle 160,000 KM. You would save about 18,000-20,000 on fuel over 160,000 KM. Add those together, along with my expectation that I will hit 160,000 KM by year 7, and I think I break even in my personal circumstance by year 6.

Tesla as jacked the prices again for the Model 3. The RWD version is up to $59,990 now and no longer qualifies for the subsidy. Elon is probably smarter than me but the Canadian markes isn't the same as the USA as we have less disposable income and $60k for a RWD model is just too much money IMO.

Demand far outstrips supply.

Do the maintenance formulas for EV vs ICE include new batteries after a certain number of years?

As long as demand outstrips supply, this is basic economics.

When there are more EVs on the market, when Tesla has more competition, etc. you may see this change but for now, electric prices are only going up due to the semiconductor shortage from covid supply chain woes.

On a properly engineered EV they aren't really necessary. Teslas with several hundred thousand miles don't show a lot of degradation.

Awesome, thank you. I knew it was a concern at some point with some EVs, but wasnít sure if the technology had changed.

The Nissan Leaf doesn't(or didn't?) have much for thermal management, so they would overheat and lose capacity. But I think all modern EV's have cooling and heating to keep them in an optimal temperature window to prevent damage.

I think the testing on the Teslaís show about 5% degradation every 100,000 miles. I saw a study where they drove it for 400,000 miles on a track and the range was 80 percent of what it started at (not sure if the rate was linear). That being said I think people will find that range is vastly overrated as they become more accustomed to EVís. My EV has a listed range of 385 KM (but you can get a lot more range in city driving). The average person almost never needs that much range in a single day and if you have a level two charger you can get fully charged overnight.

The only time range is an issue is on long trips. But even then if you have the ability to plan it is not that big of a deal. This summer I did Orleans to Niagara Falls (about 600 KM) in about 8 hours, with a lunch and charging stop in Cobourg (this included navigating getting through Toronto in weekday rush hour traffic).

Some cold weather testing. The batteries appear to well insulated but charging ability and the range drops in cold but this only shows 1 degree celsius. You call that winter? That's Calgary summer.

Here is a study from Norway on cold weather testing.

It basically finds range gets reduced by 18.5% on average and the vehicles charge more slowly.

Slower charging in cold weather will be an additional challenge for Canadaís electrical grid as the size of the EV fleet grows. Not insurmountable but a challenge none the less.
