I have reccalculated Terry's numbers comparing ICE cost per mile with EV cost per mile, for my own situation.

As a reminder, Terry's numbers came out to $0.08/mile for his VW Passat (35 MPG) and $0.03/mile for a Tesla M3 LR using home charging, with $0.07/mile for long trips out of town using Tesla superchargers.

My family uses a European-made mini-minivan with 7 seats (folding 3rd row), averaging 15,000 km per year, 9320 miles. 95%+ of the mileage is city driving, with lots of traffic and idling, and A/C on about half the time. Claimed fuel economy is 17 km/L (40 MPG, better for highway, worse for city), but in real life under these conditions it achieves a measly 9 km/L (21 MPG).

The candidate EV with very similar size and spec is the Tesla Model Y SR with the 7-seat option. Its energy usage is claimed at around 0.22 kWh/mile (worse for highway, better for city), but I am using an ultra-conservative 0.29 kWh/mile due to the A/C, charging losses, and other factors. I assume only home charging since all our trips are deep within range.

Gasoline here is $1.8 per liter, $6.80 per gallon, thanks to a taxation policy internalizing the harm caused by fossil fuels. Residential electricity is charged at $0.155 per kWh.

It turns out the fuel cost of driving the ICE car is $0.2/km, or** $0.32/mile**. The fuel cost of driving the equivalent EV is **$0.045/mile**. The ratio is over 7:1, as opposed to Terry's 2.7:1, due to the changed circumstances (high gasoline taxes, congested city driving).

The total savings of the EV over the ICE are $2560 per year in my situation.
