How I saved more than Rs 66,000 after buying the Comet EV

Driven over 11,000 km with the EV and have spent less than Rs 9,000 overall.

BHPian ALTIMAed recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

11K km in one day short of 4 months of ownership. That too considering it was standing still on two occasions comprising of 21 days!!

With the price reduction and AC FC option available, it really is a hoot-shoot 4-wheeler. It's my primary car and has a daily running of 75 kms.

Service costs I have incurred to date:

  1. 1,000 km - FOC
  2. 5,000 km - Rs 920 (rear reducer oil change)
  3. 10,000 kms- Rs 320 (a/c filter replaced)

One could compare the service cost of a similar-priced ICE vehicle

With fuel/energy costs the picture is just short of being dramatic

For 11K kms considering a mileage of 14 km/l, I would have burnt Rs 75,429/- on petrol. In the Comet, considering a range of 180 km (I am extracting much more), I have just spent Rs 8457.77

A whopping saving of Rs 66,972 using it for just 11K km!
