Automobile giant: An electric car is cheaper to run than a petrol car

driving in an electric car, per year is several thousand dollars cheaper compared to running a comparable petrol - or dieselbil.

It shows Volkswagen's own calculations of the cost of owning and driving the new car ID.3 compared with the corresponding costs for the ownership and driving in a petrol-engined Golf.

This was stated by Volkswagen in a press release.

the Calculations are based on ownership and driving in the home country Germany and is based on the basic version of the ID.3 compared with the basic version of the new VW Golf.

ID.3-owners can in the comparison of the annual saving of 840 euro, equivalent to approximately 6300 kr.

It is due to, among other things, that one should not pay the green ownership tax, not to pay for the oil change, and that the ID.3 is cheaper to insure.

- the Price is no longer an argument against, but actually to a greater extent for the electric car, says Silk Bagschick from Volkswagen.

Volkswagen the calculation applies for ownership in Germany, so that way it can not be directly transferred to Danish conditions.

Fortunately, bilejerorganisationen FDM earlier in the year, counting on the type of car that is cheapest for the Danish consumers to own and run in.

FDM made-namely, earlier in the year a bilbudget for new cars in 2020, which shows what it costs to run in a respective body type, where all relevant costs associated with the bilejerskabet is expected.

Conclusion leaning against it, as Volkswagen has now come forward to - namely, that it is overall a bit cheaper to run an electric car than a comparable petrol - or dieselbil.

According to the FDM's calculations, it costs an average of 3,58 dollars per. miles to keep an electric car to 300,000 crowns running over five years and 100,000 km. It is somewhat cheaper than for gasoline cars in the same price range. It is particularly the cost of power (fuel) and ownership tax, which is lower for the electric vehicles, and which can be felt on the overall current budget.

Volkswagen's new calculation presents in fact also a less luksusudfordring for the car giant, for when ID.3 turns out to be cheaper to own and run, the risk of Volkswagen, that the electric car is going to steal many customers from the otherwise extremely popular Golf model.
