why is no one including service costs in the running of a car?? The tesla would win that hands down.

$240 a year and it's optional anyway.

Huge savings compared to AN ICE vehicle, but everyone overlooks and and compares "fuel" consumption only
I love my car. Buy your own

I would point out that Tesla claims the $5500 (?) savings over the typical 5yr ownership and NOT as the annual savings.

I ran the numbers myself a while back. The Model S costs circa 25% of what it costs to run my Range Rover at 12.5 ltrs/100km @ $1.45 per litre. I factored the Model S electricity cost at 26c per kW from memory. A full charge is about $22.10 at those rates and it will take me about 430km.

Now those figures are for users who actually pay for electricity. I don't because I have a 20kW solar system with 48kw/h of battery storage.
So I am saving at least $7k a year running 2 Teslas for "free" and not paying for power at home.
I run a 60kw solar system at work with 48kwH of storage.  That  saves me about $40k a year of electricity at current prices. I worked it out earlier this week with the increased prices and was rather surprised.
Probably costs even less than that Scott if you set your Tesla charging to commence at 10pm as I do, when electricity only costs just under 11c per kWh  :)

Never mind the 20% price hikes due in July.
