Many people want to drive electrically, but few individuals can afford to buy a new electric car. A comparison between the electric Cone and petrol Kona shows how much of a markup will be – closer to sek 200,000.
The electric-powered version is available in two versions. What differs is the size of the battery and therefore range. The larger battery can accommodate 64 KWh of energy and can handle up to 45 miles on a full charge. The less the battery has 39 KWh and a range of up to 29 miles.
to most customers choose the larger battery. Base price: 409.900 crowns. With the highest part of the Premium gets the 444.900 crowns. On this level is the most company that is.
Although it is included most in the utrustningsväg, but there is a lot of money for a relatively small car – 4.1 metres long and with feeling in the interior as a lower-priced standardbil. What that costs is the electrical powertrain with the battery is by far the heaviest item.
How much extra becomes clear when you compare with gasoline-Kona. With the strongest petrol engine is the 1.6 T-GDI (177 hp) and Premiumpaketet it becomes 249.900 sek. (Base price for the smallest engine is 164.900 kr).
All-wheel drive included. The electric car runs only on the front wheels. Petrol vehicle may draw a trailer, it may not be the electric car.
here 195.000 sek to the vehicle's detriment. How to be a private customer to be able to justify it strictly economic?
See the calculation in the longer term, it becomes a little brighter for the electric car. After six months, the buyer may return the 60,000 crowns in klimatbonus. Then the difference is 135.000 sek.
Loading you most at home delivery cost low, around two dollars, depending on the contracts. But then you need to install a laddbox for around 10.000 sek. (An electric vehicle shall not långladdas in common garageuttag).
the petrol version is cleared will cost you around 11 per km. Run you 2,000 miles per year, it becomes 22.000 sek. The electric car wins hands down this round with its around 4.000 sek. Now the difference already in the first year reduced to 127.000 sek. After three years and 6,000 miles, we are down to 91.000 dollars.
In fordonsskattesystemet bonus malus benefit from the electric car of the minimum annual tax: sek 360. The petrol version is cleared to be punished for their high emissions of carbon dioxide at 158 grams/km. It gives 5.976 per year during the first three years. It is closer to 18.000 sek to bensinbilens disadvantage.
is the difference down at 74.00 dollars.
the Electric car becomes 3.800 sek cheaper to serve the first of 6,000 miles, not, however, cheaper to insure, rather a bit more expensive.
Then we have pushed the difference to 70.000 sek. Now comes the decision: residual value. It is now the electric car is showing its create future strength?
Allowed us to do a time jump to the spring of 2022. The cars have rolled as far, of 6,000 miles and is equally well serviced and cared for.
What do you think attracts the most response to your ad? The electric car or petrol vehicle?
No one knows for sure, but most indications are that the electric car is worth more, probably much more in relation to the petrol vehicle. The explanation is the increasingly stringent emission requirements in the EU, which will provide an increasingly higher degree of electrification. Fossil fuels will be phased out gradually.
the Amount of renewable fuels is limited, which means that the internal combustion engine is squeezed from several directions. Several manufacturers have already decided to not develop more generations of diesels. Next in line is the gasoline engine.
until a growing market for electric cars.
But, and here comes the factor which may scupper the calculation of the electric car: tomorrow's models will be significantly cheaper than today's. Volkswagen has said that their upcoming electric cars should cost as a well equipped Golf diesel. Seat, which is included in the VW, going to take up even cheaper variants.
This means that the value of your electric powered Cone will be set in relation to what a similar new electric car then it costs, not what you gave for it as new. Today's rule of thumb to half the car's value is left after three years and 6,000 km then suddenly not anymore. Not by a long shot.
It makes to the fall in value of the sek is likely to be much more keenly felt for the electric car than for a petrol vehicle, even if it loses far more as a percentage.
It should be stressed that the comparison so far only applied to dollars and cents. To weigh in, even the environment - and the effects of climate change go petrol engines, of course, beaten.
buying a new petrol car today, do it with the knowledge that it will be a trip on the final. Those who choose an electric vehicle – yes the journey has only just begun. But the entrance is everything else than cheap!
