Discovering Electric Drive

March 6th, 2018 by

Most agree that electric cars are a way of the future, but a lot of drivers wonder if the price of charging your vehicle electrically is equal to fueling up with gasoline. smart has tackled the question for us. Check out what the leading electric-car brand has to say!


Do I have to pay for electricity like I paid for gas? “Yes, but it’s much cheaper. Electricity in the US is typically about 12 cents per kWh. If you drive 15,000 miles per year, that’s about $540. A year of gas, on the other hand, can cost around $1,400. On top of that, the price of gasoline can fluctuate wildly, whereas the price of electricity is relatively stable. To see the average price of electricity in your state, visit the Energy Information Administration website.”
