How much cheaper is it to drive a mile on electricity vs gas?

    It depends on the mpkwh of the EV, the cost of electricity, the cost of gas, and the mpg of the cars you are comparing. Generally, driving an electric car costs about 1/3 to 1/10 the cost of driving a gasoline-driven car. That’s before the cost of batteries, though. Given that electric cars don’t need oil changes and require only minimal maintenance unrelated to the motor, one could fairly assume that the cost of replacing batteries every five years would equal the cost of internal combustion engine maintenance. Electric cars don’t have fuel injectors, complex coolant systems, or any of the other annoying things that cause internal combustion engines to malfunction.

    Hope that helps 🙂 Please let me know if you have any more questions!
