Do we have any data to support this statement? Do we know what the long term maintenance and operating costs are for a BEV? Let’s face it, the ICE components on a modern car are pretty bullet proof for 20+ years and 200-300K miles. Can we say the same for a BEV? What’s more likely to fail are the electronic nanny features, and other high tech gizmos that are now present on both ICE and BEV cars. I’ve had a 1999 GMC truck since new. Other than fluids, filters, brakes, tires and a 12V battery, the only thing I’ve had to replace was a parking brake cable. How many Cybertrucks will be running around in 22 years still performing as they did when new? We also have a number of owners who operate and charge the battery, exclusively on gas. In some cases the cost per mile using gas is half of what it would be on electricity. The difference could easily be $500-600/yr, depending on miles driven. That’s more than enough to offset a few oil changes. Who know where the price of either gas or electricity is headed? I don’t see electricity costs going down as demand increases and infrastructure is enhanced. I also don’t see “free” charging as a sustainable operation. Sure, some employers will offer it as a perk, but there is still a cost involved that has to be recovered one way or another. There’s also the issue of a fuel tax equivalent for BEV’s that will eventually increase the operating cost. It may be all rainbows and unicorns now, but be prepared for changes.
