Sure, if you drive very long distances every year, then EVs make a lot of sense provided that you can afford to buy a suitable one. So, the point I was making was that, if you buy a nice new Hyundai 64 kWh Elite model which costs $79,999 plus a special charger for home of about $2,000, then this is a big investment, even for a reasonably wealthy person (and most Kona EV buyers seem to want the $80,000 Elite model).
I found a spreadsheet online and tried to tweak it for NZ ( i think it is about right?) - and compared a couple of ICE and EV options - and an EV stacked up for me and my use case:
I drive a V8 so want similar performance - which the 3 can provide.
Admittedly - New EV vs 2nd Hand ICE would not come out the same - but that aint a like for like comparison.
Anyway - was fun to mess around with....
How did you work out the Model 3 NZD price?
