Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
One thing we’re all pretty sure about is that electric cars are the future!
However, anyone looking to get ahead of the game and go electric in 2021 will find that even the cheapest electric cars can cost quite a bit compared to their petrol-powered counterparts.
So with this in mind, we wanted to find out which electric car gives you, the buyer, the best value for money! We know that, on average, electric cars will offer approximately 86% of the manufacturer’s claimed range, so we’ve put together a list to find out which electric car gives you the cheapest cost per mile compared to what you pay for it when brand new.
It won’t come as a surprise that your Teslas or Taycans will come in towards the top of the list, but can you guess which will take the top spot? Let us know in the comments!

The very concept of price per mile of "range" is not a very good indicator of real world usability, a much better and practical metric would be to measure the average running cost per mile of operation. Considering the vehicle cost, average average life of battery, average maintenance costs, overheads, charging costs, distance covered per full charge etc for each one separately and then determining the rough running cost per mile would be more appropriate (probably just make a top 10 list since this could take time). Thoughts coming from a data scientist btw :)

This is very confusing. Why would it cost that much per mile? Does this assume I'm going to charge my card only once and then discard it? This is just a lazy summary. More interesting would be an article based on a 5 year ownership, comparing overall costs, assuming a travel distance of about 15,000km per year, charge costs of XYZ, service costs and leasing costs. Now THAT would give some useful information.

A fun way to compare the cars but it makes no sense in any way. The actual range estimates doesn't feel right (at least for some of the cars) and it's not a logical way of comparing EVs In my opinion. Sorry Mat. 😔

So, you penalise those manufacturers that are honest with their ranges... because most aren't? I mean, Kia/Hyundai are pretty much the only ones that perform better than their claimed ranges, yet you give them 85% of their claimed range, whereas the Jaguar iPace performs below the 85% of its claimed range. I know that the Kia/Hyundai cars do very well in this comparison, but this is still unjust because they have done far better than the company's claims in every test that I have seen, so you should not be penalising them by that 15% reduction. Add that 15% back on to the figures and you get a very different result.

The Zoe is genuinely a great little car. It's nothing on a Mercedes in terms of quality but, it's good fun to drive, available with decent kit and, is no more expensive that similar petrol/diesel hatchbacks. I'm surprised more people don't buy it.

This is lame... instead you could compare the no.of miles for the same category picking one from electric and one from petrol or diesel cars and then review the total cost including the fuel prices and electric charging prices for their range. Or you can do is compare the both segments for a certain time period, let's say 5 years and compare all the average miles that they would travel and fuel/electric expenses and everything. That would be really useful

Good video, but I think to make a more fair comparison and to have a more accurate €/mi it should have took in consideration the battery power bank of each vehicle because two cars with the same mile range and different battery power banks should have this reflected on the price per mile.

Hillo Mat good to be with you.

Idid receive the alrert as idid hit the supscripe but ididnote hit the balls icon. Remember in southafrica wedo have issues of electric wedo halve it but we really doubt halve it. Our politics people are of the variety of theft and so theydid steal all the money we had to fix the power. No problem wedo have sunshine and for entertainment there is a lot of crime wedo see people getting shot or something is stolen or thereis a explosion no problem. Atome in my house you will see when you comethrough Ido have a 8.5kW generator for when the electric does push off. Assuch is the question can I put the generator in the bag of a Tesla car assuch soas when Iam driving and itis lower on battery alride can I use my generator to charge it? Ido know this is a genius question please donut share this infoamation with anyone as iwill soon be going to the liars soas to patient it so nobody else can use my idea. I like you. A day without your words in my ears is suchwhat as alride don’t forget to email the bird packs to the board of trustees and confirm that the investment committee has the review on the agenda what are you talking about Mr.Scobbles you are a toilet cleaner off cause idid forget then please make sure I have the bleach. If you come to my house Mat we can sit next to each other no problem but please wear a musk and gloves.

You know what would be interesting as well? The average operating costs of all these cars. Cause two cars might be able to travel the same distance, but one might have a smaller battery than the other one. I actually expected that this list would have provided those costs and not the purchasing costs per mile of range.

Matt, are you sure about the 22k price for the Zoe? Does this include the battery? It seems to me too low to be true...

David M
David M Prieš mėn
Not worth bothering. It is well known that the real range relative to the WLTP varies massively from car to car. The Korean makes, for example, get very close. Many of the luxury brands like Jaguar and Audi get nowhere near. You would have been better comparing the cars EPA range, a much more accurate measurement of real world range. the 87% average has no value at all in relation to each car.

EV's just do not make financial sense. They are expensive to buy compared to their petrol/diesel counterparts and the savings are simply not enough over the life of the vehicle to make it worth it. Sure you could buy a cheap EV but why would I want an entry level one with a poor range when I can have a much better conventional petrol/diesel car for less? I'll be sticking with my Lexus IS hybrid for as long as I can, the equivalent car to that is a Tesla Model 3, I've ran the figures and it wouldn't be saving me any money for the first 5 years of ownership.

This is wrong. The Zoe isn't the cheapest electric car. The cheapest electric car is the BMW GT3 Replica 12V ride-on car for toddlers aged 3+. It has a range of 4.52 miles (assuming 87% of max range) and costs £ it's £55 per mile.

This is total BS. What assumptions were made with regards to total mileage, charging costs, maintenance, residual value, insurance, road taxes, etc.? None, you say? Ah, so you just divided the list price by the estimated miles on a charge. That figure has no practical value at all. You might as well rank those cars on curb weight per cup holder.
