As of my last fill I'm at 107 gallons for 5019 miles for $239, just under 5c per mile. And $66.01 in maintenance cost.

That's the issue in the US, with such cheap fuel, an EV could actually cost more to run V's a high MPG car. In most parts of Europe, an EV will nearly always work out far cheaper to run.

Yes, we aren't taxed to death as you are. Yet. Not for lack of trying on their part though.

We actually pay a tax on the tax we pay! We pay fuel duty on the petrol/diesel and then they charge VAT (sales tax) on that.

Tesla just reduced the prices of the model 3, all the models in fact, getting closer to that £35000 dream. Also I noticed that pearl white is now standard instead of black, which is a bonus as I hate black, but like white.

Seemingly £35,000 is the average price paid for a new car, here in the UK(!). Seems a bit rich for me, but that is the official number.

Expensive cars are tough on us guys who were born so good looking instead of rich, right JockoT?

Exactly. Most of the cars I have owned cost less than £500.

Yea it's a lot of cash to part with, but then a base Model with no options is still over £5000 cheaper than the most expensive Hyundai kona electric for sale currently, and the 3 is a much better car I my opinion. If I had safe parking I'd actually be tempted, like I said, I can get one for about £270 a month with my trade ins, but people are constantly damaging my cars here with their poor driving/parking so I wouldn't want my investment ruined by other's stupidity.

So I configured a 3, a standard range model in white with no options comes to £10 less than the luxury car tax threshold. Coincidence? I think not. That's before the £3500 government grant. So chose any colour other than white and you'll be paying a luxury car tax for the first 5 years!
