Plug-In Electric Vehicle Purchase Price Per kWh
Based off our Compare EVs data, the folks over at Plugless (makers of wireless charging systems for several different plug-in vehicles) have compiled this nifty infographic that compares plug-in electric vehicles based on price per kWh of battery.
On the BEV side, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is the clear leader with a price per kWh of just $610. Rather surprisingly, the updated 2017 Ford Focus Electric slots in the number 2 spot at $869, followed by the Tesla Model S 75 at $993.
Editor’s note: And yes, we realize the new Model S/X 100D Tesla offerings are not on the list. If they were, the Model S 100D (details)/Model X 100D (details) would ring the bell at $925 and $985 respectively.
Looking at plug-in hybrids (REx), the 2017 Chevrolet Volt is the leader at $1,805 per kWh, followed by the 21.6 kWh BMW i3 REx at $2,141 and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid at $2,625.
If you were buying based solely on battery bang for the buck, then this infographic spells it out for you rather well.
