For what it's worth, here's my auto costs:
I've owned 5 cars in my life. All mustangs. 1995-2018 so far. 4 I bought new, one I bought with about 15k miles on it. The new ones I buy when the next model year is coming out and the rebates on the old model year are high. I get the V6, but usually upgrade to the premium version with leather, upgraded sound system, etc.
I drive about 20k miles a year (70 miles a day to and from work). I trade in my car when it gets to about 4-5 years old and 80-100k miles. To get a new model usually costs me about $13k out of pocket after the trade-in value.
I spend about $1500 a year on gas, and maybe $200 a year on oil changes and whatever typical maintenance comes with that. I don't think I've paid for a repair since my first mustang. The newer ones have had a few issues like sensors going out, but those have always happened in the first 20k miles and have been under warranty.
So my all-in cost to drive a new-ish model mustang is about $5000/year for 20k miles and around 400 hours of use.
I work in IT in KC. My co-workers are the typical nerdy people you would think would be interested in electric vehicles, but I don't know a single one that has a Tesla or has ever even mentioned one. Nearly all of them drive SUVs. With commute distances so high, it makes more sense to fill up with gas for 3 minutes vs charge for an hour.
