I went through and updated specs for these vehicles based on the model year 2022. I also updated the BMW offering from the i3 to the i4, and added the VW ID.4 to the list.
I wanted to also add pricing to the comparison, and then break that down by Price/mi. Not sure of the value there, but it can really show a wide difference. This is essentially saying “how expensive is it to drive this vehicle a mile”, excluding charging costs. (e.g. Tesla M3 is $156/mi, vs an Audi e-tron at $302/mi.)
- Tesla returns to the top in mi/kWh.
- Given pricing, Chevy Bolt’s offer a compelling argument. (Recent issues notwithstanding…)
- If you’ve been following the news, Rivian raised their pricing. Makes that already bottom-scraping mi/kWh metric even more hard to swallow.
- Ranges are getting better when compared to last year, and technology is improving. Hopefully this will mean we’ll soon see more affordable models being offered in coming years.
Compiling and tracking these metrics is a fun pastime for me, but I can see that I need to start segmenting out this into vehicle class. Look for that to happen with the next post.
Any thoughts on what to change or improve on?
