Running costs and Maintenance of electric cars

This can be attributed most of the costs of  operating an electric car for maintenance and replacement of the battery because the electric car only about 5 moving parts in the engine, compared with gasoline-powered vehicle that contains hundreds of spare parts in the engine, internal combustion electric cars and batteries expensive that must be replaced, but otherwise incur maintenance costs very low .. Especially in the case of the designs of Li current list.
To calculate the cost per kilometer of electric cars and so it is necessary to assign monetary value of the resulting wear on the battery. This can be difficult due to the fact that it will have the capacity of a little less each time they are charged and this is only to be at the end of his life when he decides his performance that he is no longer acceptable. Until then, the 'end of life battery is not completely worthless as it can be intentional or recycled or used as a reserve.
Since the battery monitor from many individual cells that do not necessarily wear evenly periodically replace the worst of these can be set to keep the car.
It is expected that the car Tesla battery pack is too large to the last seven years with exemplary leadership and the cost of U.S. $ 12,000 when the day before the purchase. Driving 40 miles (64 kilometers) per day for seven years or 102,200 miles (164,500 km) leads to battery consumption, cost the United States $ 0.1174 for every 1 mile (1.6 km) or the United States $ 4.70 for each 40 miles (64 km). The company provides the best place to another compared to the costs it expects to meet its contractual obligations to deliver the batteries as well as clean electricity to recharge the batteries at a total cost of $ 0.08 per 1 mile (1.6 km) in 2010, the United States $ 0.04 per kilometer by 2015 and U.S. United $ 0.02 per kilometer by 2020. 40 miles (64 km) of driving the United States will cost $ 3.20 at the beginning and the fall more than once for up to $ 0.80.
In 2010 the U.S. government estimated that the battery with 100 miles (160 km) range will cost about U.S. $ 33,000. There is still concern about the durability and longevity of the battery.
April estimated the cost of coca will be operating 5 Year U.S. $ 1.800 compared to U.S. $ 6,000 car for gasoline. The documentary film Who Killed the Electric Car? A comparison between the parts that require replacement in gasoline powered cars and EV1s, with garages stating that they provide for electric cars in every 5000 miles (8000 km), and rotate the tires and fill the windshield washer fluid and bring them back again.
