This Is Why Electric Car Sales Are Blowing Up In The UK

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Wed, 08 Jul 2020 06:01:34 +0000

Well, there are a few reasons why electric car sales are exploding in the UK, where they now account for nearly 10% of auto sales. I think awareness still hasn’t caught up to the many benefits of an electric car or the potential for financial savings compared to a “similar” fossil-fueled car, but consumers are waking up to these matters. On the latter topic, I’ll try to do my part again to bring some insight to this matter to more Brits

Tesla Model 3 vs BMW 330i & Audi A4 — 5 Year Cost of Ownership

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Sat, 25 Apr 2020 23:00:43 +0000

It’s been a long time since I conducted some new 5 year cost of ownership comparisons between the Tesla Model 3 and other top vehicles in its class. The $1,875 federal EV tax credit for the Model 3 has gone away in that time, and we’re into a new model year. So, I decided to get back into this by comparing the the Tesla Model 3 to the BMW Series (the 330i xDrive Sedan, to be specific) and Audi

Plug-In Vehicle Sales Up To 3.1% In UK, 6.3% In December — But Look Around The Corner

The United Kingdom (not so united these days, but that’s another story) is becoming a hot electric vehicle market, but it gets very little attention in the EV world. I’m going to postulate that’s because people drive on the wrong side of the road there. (Just sayin’.)

Bank of America Merrill Lynch: UK Tesla Model 3 & Other EV 3-Year Total Cost of Ownership Analysis Shows EVs Much Cheaper than Fossil Competitors

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Sat, 07 Dec 2019 15:01:01 +0000

We’ve published numerous analyses of our own on the total cost of ownership of the Tesla Model 3 and Volkswagen ID.3 compared to top gasoline competitors. However, if you don’t trust research from CleanTechnica, perhaps you’ll find the work of a major international financial firm more palatable. A recently published report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) dove into this topic for the

There are several cost of ownership calculations out there between the Tesla Model 3 and the Toyota Camry, but there’s always room for more. In fact, as more and more Model 3s pop up around me week after week, I’m feeling like the Model 3 is the new Camry. Let’s take a look again to [&hellip

Tesla Model 3 vs. Mercedes C-Class & Audi A4 — 5 Year Cost of Ownership Comparisons

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Thu, 26 Sep 2019 06:11:02 +0000

I wrote earlier this week that I would conduct some new 5 year cost of ownership comparisons between the Tesla Model 3 and its top luxury car competitors. I’ve actually never before conducted an analysis comparing the Model 3’s cost of ownership to the cost of ownership of the Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4. I think the main reason is that it was just clear from the Model 3 comparison with the BMW 3 Series and 4 Series that the Model 3 would embarrass these other cars on a cost of ownership basis. Nonetheless, now seemed like a good time for a new round of comparisons
