According to the website Slash Gear, the estimated cost to “fuel” the car annually is just $500, with the vehicle using 29kWh over the course of 100 miles. The cost is calculated by estimating the price of electricity over the course of 15,000 miles of travel distance, using both a mixture of highway and city ratings.
The car, which is set for a spring 2013 release, is also estimated to get a range of 87 miles when completely charged — it can be charged in under four hours with 240 volts — higher than all other electric vehicles in the U.S.
