Gas Cost: $4/gallon average over period.
Efficiency: MPG = EPA Combined City/Highway; Watts/mile = EPA rating.
Electricity: $0.11 per kWh average over period.
$0.15 per mile over 12,000 miles per year additional lease cost.
Maintenance: Not included. Lower for PEV.
Home Charging Station Costs: Not included. L2 plus installation would add ~$1,000 initial.

Energy efficiency provides benefits by
reducing load, while transportation
electrification provide benefits by increasing
load.
Increasing the use of electricity for
transportation provides net benefits for both
society [petroleum displacement, GHG
reduction, PM reduction, NOx+ROG reduction]
and utility ratepayers.
