NISSAN LEAF CALCS
100 miles for full charge of battery (24KWh)
sudval.org commute for one year:
7200 miles/year (10 miles one way x 4 a day)
so that’s 7200 / 100 * 24KWh = 1728 KWh / 12 = 144 KWh per month
$28/month (at $0.20/KWh) vs $66/month for gasoline (at 26MPG and $3/gallon)
And no oil spill guilt (just solar. and/or mountain top removal type guilt)
I doubt we’d buy a LEAF. Probably a plug-in hybrid instead. But who knows.
