The Government is encouraging as many people as possible to buy electric vehicles as part of their environmental policies. So, if some people are prepared to pay $80,000 for a 64 kWh elite Hyundai Kona, then this is a good thing because their Konas are likely to be sold within a few years at a considerably reduced price, which means that they may then be more attractive to a wider group of buyers.
So, even though new EVs are very expensive at the moment, we should encourage as many people to buy them as possible, rather than to continue investing in petrol vehicles (which are harmful to the environment), merely because they are cheaper than EVs.
... I am not saying don't go spend your hard earned cash on one, but you might want to go and take a really good hard look at the numbers.
If I'm silly enough to pay $80,000 for a NZ-new 64 kWh Elite Hyundai Kona EV, in say 2 year's time, someone will probably be silly enough to buy it second-hand off me for $50,000 resulting in a net cost to me for owning the Kona for 2 years of $15,000 per year (which isn't too bad).
Now lots of people are prepared to spend $15,000 per year on overseas trips etc, so you have to look at the numbers mainly from the point of view of the likely depreciation over the period you own it. Sure, you lose interest on the $80,000 you had to fork out to buy it in the first place, but with interest rates being so low, it's not such a big factor these days (IMHO).
If you look too hard at the numbers, you wouldn't do anything, particularly travel and the purchase of luxury items!
