I am curious how much an electric car will save in terms of servicing and maintenance costs? Assuming ownership over 15 years. I remember in the NRMA magazine they had a full breakdown of the cost of ownership of different cars with the cheapest around $100 a week to own over it's lifetime and the more expensive models around $500 a week over their lifetime. Also how much will it save of fuel costs? I guess this depends also on the state with some having a tax on electric vehicles.
Also, how far can we expect electric car prices to fall? There is a Chinese model expected to arrive next year for around $35,000. Over it's lifetime would it work out cheaper to own this car than a $15,000-$20,000 petrol model? Assuming petrol prices will go sky high when petrol cars are being phased out.
