EDITOR's NOTE: Some people buy EVs thinking they will save money by avoiding the gas station. That is true but it doesn't happen as soon as you think. It can be between 15 to 20 years before you save one penny depending on when the batteries fail. You don't begin to save until the amount you don't pay the gas station equals the amount you did pay for your EV and any battery replacements. Always remember, saving money is not about who gets your money. Its about how much leaves your bank account.
