Re: CleanMPG Previews the 2011 Nissan LEAF
After reading this article, I began to crunch some numbers
XCEL, you got 6.9miles/KwH, lets pretend I would get 6.
I paid $.11 per KwH on my last electric bill.
I drive about 1500 miles a month, and a 100mile range would handle all of my commuting needs. The LEAF would take $28 a month to run. My truck (averaging 21mpg and $2.79/gal) would take about $200 a month. If I was a hypermiling GOD with a honda hybrid (and able to get almost 120mpg), it would take $35 a month.
My carbon footprint would be another story. Maybe ya'll would have fun crunching the numbers.
According to the link below, Coal accounts for 46% of OK's electricity, NG about 45%.
