Comparison of maintenance costs of gasoline and electric vehicles in the long run

مقایسه هزینه نگهداری خودروهای بنزینی و برقی در بلندمدت

New research shows that electric cars are much cheaper in the long run than gasoline cars. For example, over a 36-month period, electric vehicles cost their owners an average of $ 514, compared to $ 749 for internal combustion models.

But in the short term the situation is slightly different. According to We Predict, owners of electric models in the United States spend an average of $ 123 in the first quarter and $ 306 in the first year to maintain their car; The average cost of internal combustion models in the same period is estimated at $ 53 and $ 189, respectively.

According to We Predict, the significant difference in the cost of electric and internal combustion vehicles in the long run is mainly related to maintenance costs. For example, an electric car will cost the owner only $ 77 to maintain during the first three years of ownership, but that’s $ 228 for an internal combustion vehicle.

We Predict data was collected from 13 million vehicles, including 400 different models. In the study, researchers extracted results from 65 million services in which more than $ 7.7 billion was spent on spare parts and $ 9.5 billion on wages. Other factors such as unexpected repairs, warranties and recalls, troubleshooting, software updates, factory-installed options, and service campaigns are also taken into account.

In addition, We Predict concludes that car maintenance costs are rising. For example, during the first three years of ownership of the 2018 models, automakers receive an average of $ 731 from the owners, which is an increase of 11% compared to the 2016 models. In addition, the cost of repairs increased by 4%, the cost of maintenance and service campaigns increased by 11% and 35%, respectively.

Another interesting point is that according to We Predict research, at present, the repair fee for electric vehicles is between two and three times higher than gasoline models. This is due to factors such as technicians not being fully familiar with the problems of electric vehicles and more time to fix defects. It is expected that with the training of new technicians and the expansion of their experience, this difference will gradually decrease.
