Electric Vehicle Running Costs
Currently, petrol rates are hovering at around Rs 80 or more in some cities. Based on this atrocious rate, we have made the following calculations:
For an electric car, battery replacement costs only need to be considered after 8 or 9 years. For a lithium-ion electric scooter, battery replacement costs only need to be considered after 5 or 6 years. So, these numbers were not factored into the above calculations.
You always need to look at the total cost of ownership over many years for both ICEs and EVs. If you do that, EVs will always win because of the low cost of operating them.
