Cost of driving I-pace

Got my first 1100km under my belt. According to Juicebox i've used 302 KWh so far charging at home. Did have some free charging at various stores - longos, Oakville mall, Toronto premium outlets - likely <5%. I only charge during off peak times. In Ontario, electricity cost is 10.1c per KWh. So I spent $30.50 driving 1100 km. My Subaru Outback 3.6L ICE would take 2 tanks of gas to go 1100km = about $150 here. It's not the most fuel efficient vehicle. Driving about 18000km/yr.

Over a year I would save about $2000 in energy - $166 per month. I'm hoping maintenance will also be less - my LR4 is costing between $3-5k a year to maintain. Brakes and oil changes mostly - the occasional incidental fix like headlights ($400 a pop). I'm assuming an ICE Jag might be similar.

So hopefully saving about $300 a month depending on what maintenance costs on the I-pace. I'm still justifying the cost of this car to my boss/wife.

Yep - that's how I roll. A lot of justification for these sound economic choices. I learned that from my wife - she's an expert.

The I-Pace costs me stress, as in my stress melts away.

It costs me time, as in the time to tell people what it is.

It costs me discomfort too and impatience.

Oh yeah, and money.

Photon FE, 2013 FR-S, 2014 Forester, and maybe going to get a Fiat 500e

Low cost would be a five year used Corolla. They would still ask why you drive it.

Ask the boss when the company will be getting on the program and installing charging stations.....

The economics sound so much better with low priced hydroelectric power, and heavily taxed gas prices. Those of us in the US are jealous. &#x1f600;
That said I was anticipating a similar argument with "the boss", justifying $70k vs her $55k BMW. I asked her to test drive the I-Pace, and we ended up walking out of the dealership with an FE based on the driving experience and the quality.

Factor in the car price. I had a $90k Lexus RX450h and and now a $100k iPace, so the $100k does not go towards the electric cost/savings part of the math. The Jaguar/Lexus vs. Corolla is a different discussion and equation.

My Chargepoint charger tells me I'm getting, on a cost basis, the equivalent of 70 mpg. In fact, because I have a 10kw solar array, I'm driving for free.

Don't kid yourself that there is any savings driving an I-Pace. My $86,000 MSRP vehicle got an offer from Carmax for $55,000 after only 1500 miles. I could buy 12,400 gallons of gas which would take me 300,000 miles for that!
