# Electric Cost Per Mile Calculator

The cost per mile will be displayed here.

Introduction: Understanding the cost of running an electric vehicle is essential for budgeting and making informed decisions. The Electric Cost Per Mile Calculator helps you determine how much it costs to travel a mile in your electric vehicle based on electricity rates and consumption.

Formula: The calculator multiplies the electricity rate (in dollars per kilowatt-hour) by the electricity consumed (in kilowatt-hours) to find the total cost of electricity. It then divides this by the distance traveled (in miles) to get the cost per mile.

Total Cost (\$) = Electricity Rate (\$/kWh) × Electricity Consumed (kWh)

Cost Per Mile (\$) = Total Cost (\$) / Distance Traveled (Miles)

How to Use: Using the Electric Cost Per Mile Calculator is simple. Follow these steps:

1. Enter the electricity rate in dollars per kilowatt-hour (\$/kWh).
2. Input the total electricity consumed in kilowatt-hours (kWh).
3. Specify the distance traveled in miles.
4. Click the “Calculate” button.

The calculator will provide you with the cost of traveling one mile in your electric vehicle.

Example: For instance, if you consume 20 kWh of electricity at a rate of \$0.15 per kWh and travel a distance of 100 miles, the calculator will display a cost of \$3.00 per mile.

FAQs:

1. What factors affect the cost per mile? The cost per mile is influenced by the electricity rate, the efficiency of your vehicle, and your driving habits.
2. Does this calculator account for charging losses? No, it assumes 100% efficiency in the charging process. Real-world charging may have slight losses.
3. Can I use this calculator for other electric vehicles? Yes, you can use it for any electric vehicle as long as you input the relevant electricity consumption and distance traveled.
4. Can I change the currency for cost inputs? The calculator is set to work with dollars, but you can use it with any currency as long as you’re consistent in your inputs.

Conclusion: The Electric Cost Per Mile Calculator provides an estimate of the cost associated with traveling one mile in your electric vehicle. It’s a valuable tool for budgeting and understanding the financial benefits of electric vehicle ownership. Keep in mind that this is an estimate and actual costs may vary. Use this calculator as a starting point in your electric vehicle journey.
