    Thread: Considering a replacement vehicle - questions, recommendations etc

    You'll probably end up on a standard user plan with a lower per KWh and higher daily (like $1.80 vs the 35c of low user). So you'll need to factor in possibly needing to switch plans into your...

    True, but it's also the major factor when talking about range in a regular EV and is a directly comparable metric.

    Must be unlucky, my 2012 Minicab has a much smaller battery and is still getting high 80s now after 80,000KM. I do a 72KM roundtrip on 18 for work, mostly motorway.

    Really? I've never driven one but they say it'll do 50. I don't see why it wouldn't, it has an 8KWh battery.

    My 16KWh Minicab could do 150 when it was new (rated at 160). And does around 90 these...

    If you mostly drive around town, get an Outlander PHEV. Put the remainder on finance if need be.

    You'll save more in fuel than the interest on 10k of finance.

    Say 40KM/day (14,600KM/year)....

    Funnily enough, no.

    At $1500, though, you'd probably want to put it in a display case and admire it in the lounge. You risk damaging it if you use it.
