And the best part is that in 8 years the focus will still keep getting the same milage per tank and an EV will need a $30,000 investment to not be a huge paperweight. I think this is the part that most people lose sight of. I hear a lot of "well ill just trade it in before that" comments and this makes me think the resale for this junk will be next to zero as it will be hot potato to get out of the vehicle in time before the next $30,000 battery needs to be purchased.At $4/Gal it’s roughly half the cost to run the Lightning as it is my focus. But the focus only costs me about $100/month to fuel.
$50/month savings isn’t that impressive considering the cost of the Lightning.
I really want to reserve these discussions for when we got hard numbers but as of right now, the math doesn’t work. And math is math. It doesn’t change and it doesn’t care about politics or feelings.
