Cost per mile
If recall the IRS mileage rate is $.56 per mile. I don’t think people realize how expensive it is to drive. We have mostly fully depreciated cars but I still figure $.50 per mile for easy math. My Daughter makes Starbucks run 6 miles RT. Sometimes I remind her that her $4 drink is now $7. Many people loose money driving a low MPG fancy truck.
Anyway how cheap will the Aptera be to operate?
ICE expenses in order of cost are usually in order
Major Maintenance Annualized
Lube oil filter
I am guessing the Aptera will be less than $.20 per mile.
Depreciation $.10 per mile – (very long lived body and drivetrain)
Energy $ .05 per mile on average with many free solar miles
Major Maintenance Annualized – $.02 per mile (very little brake wear, no transmission, no emission system, tiny cooling system)
Insurance $.05 probably the same as a new $40k car
Tires $.01 (only 3 wheels very light)
LOF $.0 NA
