Using shorthand, the lowest cost per mile range in the chart is $124 for the Chevy Bolt and $146 is the lowest price for a Tesla – the Model 3 long range. Most are higher than these examples and they range from an average of about $300 to a maximum coming in just under $1000 (Porsche)
Comparing the lowest priced Aptera – 2wd with 250/mile battery, it comes in at $100/mile while the top-priced Aptera with 1000 mi range comes in under $50.00/mi.
The metric (purchase price) ÷ (range in miles) is included in the last column of the table and the rows (vehicle makes/models) are sorted by this metric, from best (lowest cost per mile of range) to worst (highest cost per mile of range). Note that in this table, the vehicle price is reduced by the Federal Tax Credit for all vehicles listed.
Guess which vehicles come out on top? And it’s not even close!
I’ve included the “interesting” start of the table as a graphic, but you can see the entire table in this pdf file.
(Oh, and please no snarky comments about the model year values I used for the Aptera configurations! Always the optimist!)
