Fuel cost on my class c are 33 cents per kilometer or 53 cents per mile. A Bev is a factor of ten cheaper.


I'm curious to see your math. It seems exceedingly optimistic. From what I've read, to move an EV the size and weight of your motorhome at speed takes on the order of 1.5 kwh/mile. With an average cost in the US of $0.14/kwh, you're looking at a factor of about 2.5 cheaper, not 10.

Hi,

I don't think there are figures yet, not for 13750 lbs which is where I weigh in. But I think you are making a good point.
