All I can say is that the car is awesome!! Driving from Newmarket, Ontario to North York(Toronto) at a round trip of 104km a day. All charging done at home(no charging allowed at work)

drove 28715 km

$433.16 in electricity cost/year

76.21 liters of fuel used

3448 liters of fuel saved(approx) when compared to my 2005 Montana van using 12-13 Liters per 100km(if my figure is correct)

tell me if I calculated Liters of fuel saved incorrectly

The car is great. when I try to expalin it to my friends, they just don't get it! Oh well too bad for them.

We bought ours in January and wow my wife and I just love this car so much.

We are still on our first tank of gas and not at the halfway point yet. Previously we were budgeting 160 $ a month for gas for out Lancer which had low compression.

My quick estimate is that my 30 mile round trip to work 4 days a week is costing me 8.96 per month! Aside from that I have never driven a car that felt so fancy before. I drove my dads BMW for a couple weeks when I went on vacation to Florida and honestly it didn't feel as peppy or as premium.

Everything about this car just works for me and my family. This was our first new car ever and boy are we NOT regretting it!
