Additional things to consider.
Total Cost of Ownership
In addition to significant fuel cost reductions, keep in mind, EVs don't need oil changes and have far fewer parts to maintain than traditional gas/diesel-powered cars. This can save a lot of time and money over the life of the vehicle.
Cold Weather Performance
It's important to note that EVs will experience significant range reductions in extreme weather conditions as energy from the battery is used for heating/cooling and running auxiliary equipment, such as windshield wipers and seat warmers. This degradation will vary substantially across makes and models and weather conditions. Consult manufacturer websites for additional details.
Used Vehicles and Battery Life
As any vehicle ages, performance degrades. In the case of EVs, battery life is something to consider when evaluating used options. The federal government mandates that electric batteries be covered for a minimum of 8 years or 100,000 miles. Some manufacturers and offering warranties beyond that.
