Yes, that $.14 is everything. I do not have to pay for Eversource to deliver. I’m on a municipality power provider and ever source doesn’t hit me with an extra charge.
Additionally, for me, I have a tax indebtedness that will allow me to get the full $7500 tax credit and I already received the $7500 state tax credit because my lariat extended range qualifies as a heavy electric vehicle. So, right off the bat I was $15,000 down on the price of my truck. I am a generation one buyer, so I have no price elevation or increase to consider. Additionally I had roughly $12-$13,000 equity in my previous lariat. So I don’t have the same factors to consider that you’re pointing out.
Point blank for ME it costs less to operate this vehicle than it did my previous gas vehicle. I realize that’s not going to be true for everyone nor am I pretending it to be. All I’ve ever said is that this vehicle works for me and it’s cheaper for me to use.
When I analyzed the cost of a full charge (I did the math elsewhere on the forum in another post) a full charge cost me less than $20. At the current gas prices near me, assuming that I was always gonna fill up at Costco, which I typically do, a full tank at 36 gallons in my old lariat lariat would be $130. I don’t need a long-term outlook to see the difference in the math. Even factoring in an increase in car payment, I’m still ahead. Car insurance was a negligible increase. Because I’m not driving hundreds of miles a day, my round-trip commute is about 30 miles, the electric bill has not increased to any significant degree. Also, factor in where I am in the state there is plenty of free charging to be had; it was a no-brainer for me.
