We have had our Nissan Leaf for 8 days and covered 256 miles. The on-board computer tells us that we have covered 3.6miles for every kWh of electricity used to charge the batteries.
So how much has it cost to run?
- Our electricity costs us 11p/kWh so as 71.11 kWh have been used to charge the batteries, the cost has been £7.82.
- However, if we consider the Solar PV Panels we have on our roof have provided 50% of that energy then the cost is £3.91.
- We do get paid via the Feed-in Tariff for generating the electricity so at today’s rate we would get paid £5.11.
- Real cost means we are “in pocket” £1.20.
