Great cost comparison: These electric cars are already cheaper than diesel and petrol engine
Imago Images / Andreas Prost Huge cost comparison: These electric cars are already cheaper than diesel & co
Driving an electric car is becoming increasingly favorable: A new, cross-border overview of the maintenance costs for cars shows that e-cars are sometimes cheaper in both mid-range and compact segment than diesel or petrol engine.
The fleet management and leasing provider LeasePlan has published its annual car cost index for 2020. This shows that the costs for driving an electric car in Germany are increasingly closer to those of a comparable combustion engine.
Analysts have examined the actual maintenance costs for cars in 18 European countries. The cost of fuel, loss of value, tax, insurance and maintenance flowed into the maintenance costs. The company has the data for Germany based on the approximately 110.000 vehicles raised, which they themselves look after in leasing.
730 euros a month: hardly more than a petrol engine on small cars
The results for Germany show: In the small car and compact class, the maintenance for an electric car with 730 euros a month is only ten euros above the diesel and 26 euros above the petrol engine.
It looks similar in the rest of Europe. The costs of electric cars in the mid -range segment are compared to vehicles with an combustion engine in 14 of the 18 countries examined "fully competitive". When "competitive" Defines lease plan electric vehicles that Nmore than five percent are more expensive than their counterparts with combustion engine. These 14 countries include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

In the compact class, electric cars are fully competitive compared to cars with an combustion engine in eight countries: Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The weighted average costs for driving a car are very different across all drive types in the individual countries. If driving in Hungary costs an average of 491 euros a month, it is 926 euros in Switzerland. Germany is in midfield with an average of 703 euros. In this country, the total monthly operating costs according to drive types are now 704 euros for a petrol engine, 720 euros for a diesel and 730 euros for an electric car already close together.
"A strong used car market is slowly developing"
"The good news is that the costs for electric vehicles are falling and we can see that a strong used car market for high -quality electric vehicles is slowly developing", says Roland Meyer, managing director of LeasePlan.
The bad news is that many governments are still failing to provide the necessary charging infrastructure in order to comply with demand on the market. Meyer: "Supporting switching to electromobility is the best investment that can make governments. Electric cars are good for the drivers, good for air quality and one of the most effective ways to combat climate change."

Stromer is already significantly cheaper in Norway
By the way: in Norway, driving a burner is even significantly more expensive than the use of a electricity. The difference to the cheap electric car is greatest compared to all other countries: Stromer costs 750 euros per month, while drivers from petrol engines pay an average of 851 euros and diesel drivers even pay 913 euros.
In Germany, too, electric cars can already be cheaper than comparable diesel or petrol engine – especially because of this, of course, Because they are cross-financed with billions of subsidies from taxpayers, about the 2021, now third CO2 tax for drivers.
The site cost calculator uses concrete car comparisons to show the time according to which e-cars pay off. You can choose the models for comparison from around 20 electric cars and 20 burners. Parameters such as annual mileage, electricity prices and fuel costs are freely adaptable. Site has set up the cost comparison for four particularly popular e-cars.

These electric cars are already worthwhile today:
1. Audi e-tron 50 against Audi Q7 TDI
Audi’s first electro SUV E-TRON 50 is worth it compared to the diesel SUV Audi Q7 50 TDI after less than a year. The E-Tron 50 is only slightly more expensive than the diesel Q7 and is also state-funded on top of that. In addition, the e-tron saves 242 euros annually in running costs for maintenance, wear parts, tax and insurance. The e-tron is also cheaper for the mileage costs.

2. BMW i3 against BMW 118i
You can also save in the compact class: for example with the BMW i3. With one of the list price of around 38.At first glance, the Bavarian electric pioneer was extremely expensive for a small car – after state funding, the price falls at the level of the comparable BMW 118i petrol engineer.
The running costs of the i3 are cheap compared to the 1 Series BMW: around 900 euros per year can be used for maintenance, tax and so on saving. A BMW i3 120AH pays off for the driver compared to the 118i after only one year. After ten years, the i3 driver saved around 8,000 euros compared to the petrol engine.

The i3 also pays back the investments with a range of up to 360 kilometers, premium flair and original eco interior. With his carbon body, it is lighter than all other compact class e-cars, with 170 hp it drives more freaky and accelerated to 100 km/h in around seven seconds. The design of the i3 polarizes-it is still noticeable years after its market launch in the street scene. The very narrow fund doors that open backwards are extravagant, but sometimes impractical.
Conclusion: The i3 is a high-quality and dynamic electrical alternative to premium small cars such as the Mini or 1 Series BMW.

3. Tesla Model 3 against BMW 320D
With an entry price of over 40.000 euros is Teslas Model 3 certainly not a cheap stream. Compared to conventionally powered premium competitors such as the 3 Series BMW with four-cylinder diesel, Teslas Model 3 is still cheaper away.

Thanks to the state environmental bonus of 9000 euros, the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus is almost 9000 euros cheaper from the start than the Bavarian Diesel Limousine BMW 320D. In the case of running costs, however, both are equally expensive.
More on the subject: Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus in the test: This can be the basic version
With 258 hp, the basic model of the Tesla Model 3 is not an anti-fun eco-run. The highway range of less than 300 kilometers makes long distances relatively planned. The strong charging capacity is right for this. Its complete equipment even makes the basic Tesla a hard competition-not only for electric cars from Japan and Korea, but also for the sporting combustion engineers from Germany.

4. Renault Zoe against Renault Clio
Renault has been selling his first pure electric car, the Zoe. For a long time it was Europe’s best -selling electric car. Not wrongly: Especially with its attractive entry price and the high range, the Zoe scores.
Thanks to the environmental bonus, the Renault ZOE can compete with diesel competitors: there is a Renault Clio with a diesel engine for around 20.000 euros. The conveyed zoe costs around 1.000 euros less. The ZOE also causes far fewer costs than the Clio and saves its owner about 450 euros per year. This is how the little French power is paying off from the first year. Within ten years, ZoE drivers even save almost 5,600 euros compared to the Clio Diesel.
Zoe 2020: Elektro-Renault with 400 km range for under 20.000 €
Site Zoe 2020: Elektro-Renault with 400 km range for under 20.000 €
Renault’s lively compact is designed as a pure Stromer. This allows particularly efficient use of space. On the outside, the car is smaller than a Renault Clio, inside it even offers up to five passengers a little more space. With its 92 electric horsepower, the Zoe drives absolutely everyday 316 kilometers. The 41 KWH battery invites you to 80 percent of its total volume with an alternating current in just more than an hour.
Efahrer test conclusion: The zoe has matured well over the years. Traders and users report maintenance costs, which are less than half of a small car with an incinerated engine.

Are they currently only because they are co -financed by the community and, you really want to … Drive in an environmentally friendly manner, the big chunk "Battery exchange" after +- 10 years is not included here. If that will be possible at all because there will be no longer any battery packs in the current, fast development. It certainly has nothing to do with environmental protection and sustainability if you buy a new car every 10 years or earlier. The fact that the used car market collapses, we are not yet able to recognize it, will only be shown in a few years. Why do the car manufacturers only give that "crook" Guarantee of 8 years instead of rounders 10 years on the batteries.
How to come
As a taxpayer, I actually have your e-cart from my tax money through the subsidy as an environmental bonus without being asked. If you want a car, regardless of whether it is a fuel or e-cart, you should also pay it fully
Diesel tax reduction catches a higher vehicle tax
… not on.??? Have, as always, added up and lo and behold: it is vice versa. With a 2-l diesel car with KBA average consumption 7 l and 15.000 annual kilometers is the tax advantage from the diesel sprit higher than the additional costs of € 9.50 vehicle tax per 100 cc. So: first calculate, then ..
This childish joy of an e-freak
Is just cute. Everything that has a plug is cheered and celebrated. And of course everything is contradicted by what speaks against the E-marbstrasse.
Even if the e-car funding…
falls away, the price development will stop. The manufacturers will reduce the new prices of the vehicles accordingly because they want to continue to sell electric cars. The resulting oversupply of e-car batteries and the competitive pressure will ensure that the prices continue to fall. If you want an electric car, however (as the comparisons show in the article), you can already drive it cheaply and do not have to wait years.
…the home does not have a charging option, probably counts very differently….and decides according to his personal parameters. Not to forget, those who cannot or want to afford a car in this price range at all. So just counted nicely, no more and no less….
E cheaper than fuel? Nonsense high 10.
Almost every petrol engine is capable of lpg compared to "€-Karrenschlag" Are retrofitting costs of 2.0 to 3.5 Mille almost – good:! -peanuts. Depending on the place of residence, you can recharge 0.35 € /LTR. There holds u.A. flat share. Electricity costs in D No €-Karre with whose KW BAB Consumption beyond the 100 with a ratio of decreasing range grows in the square. LPG shows the E-Seln the taillights.
And nevertheless "Nothing is good for E-Vehikel"…
Compared to modern combustioners, they are "rangwit" still "hopelessly inferior" and become it "long-term" also stay. A battery, with its comparison "low energy density" Opposite petrol and diesel cannot replace a tank. The loading times are, especially at "Long -haul trips", still far too long, provided that one "functioning charging station" find and you too "the first" On this is. Every cent that you in this "BUV-Sackgassen-Technology" sunk is "burnt money". I hope that finally "Fuel cell" and the "Synthetic fuel" come and the "BUV uninemicity" Finally "In the orcus of automotive history" promote…
Repeat your arguments…
Even when electric cars have an average range of over 600 km and are charged in 10 minutes? It will take a few more years, but that we’ll get it is foreseeable. The fuel cell therefore has no chance (as a mass product in cars). E-fuel is not a solution anyway. Otherwise they would have been encouraged now.
Yes, a spade is also cheaper…
As an excavator. The question is: What do I need. The soh of the battery is completely disregarded over the time and its decline in value. Furthermore, fuel is occupied with over 70% taxes. I always ask myself how long it will take for the government to properly tax the charging current. Remains exciting….
Charging current is not taxed….
That would conflict with the desired environmental goals and is not feasible because electric cars can also be loaded on the socket, which would then be legal tax evasion. What will come is a route toll for everyone (when grown over the Scheuer toll grass).
Then also incorporate the subsidies into the calculation of the costs, this can be forgotten. Should the Germans actually subsidize the drivers and the state should at the same time forego the tax revenue without any problems? How can you get such weird ideas. The sufficient power supply is still missing.
The e-car premiums expire, the vehicles will certainly not become more expensive. Taxes for combustioners will continue to rise and a route will come for everyone. How do you come to the fact that the power supply is not sufficient? So far there are no bottlenecks and several million electric cars are also feasible.
When evaluating and comparing lifting piston with electric motors, the time should also be taken into account "Refuel" is required. Please always "fill up" Note and not 80 or 90%. According to the motto "time is money" a cost factor would still have to be calculated. The type of apartment of the driver: single -family house with a charging box or high -rise, 10 must of course also be distinguished. Stockwork, large settlement.
In fact, the charging time plays…
a much smaller role than combustion drivers as they think. The charging takes place (apart from rare long distances) whenever the car is standing anyway. In the future, this will also apply to people who do not have their own charging options through charging options when shopping. Nevertheless, you load electric cars to protect the battery I. D. Usually only up to 80%. Comparison of up to 100% is therefore pointless.
