How much does it cost (HK Island) to charge the 85kWh battery? What about Kowloon?
In HK it's about 110c/kWh from memory. It will take about 20-30% more electricity than capacity to "fill up". I worked out a while ago with CLP it will cost $124 to fill an 85.
Presumably you are talking HK$ here?
Thank you so much! Irresistible!
Yes those prices are from CLP. Don't forget there is wastage, so putting in 50kw of energy might take 70 from the grid.
You expect a 40% wastage?
Honestly, even at 100% wastage, it will still be a bargain!
This image does not seem correct from the CLP website on first glance.
My rough calculation, from 3 years driving a Roadster, is about 1/4 the fuel cost of the Prius it replaced. Half of that is EV efficiencies, and the other half is 0% tax on electricity and 100% tax on petrol. That was based on what was taken from the wall, including some free public charging, as well as charging (cooling) losses.
What doesn't look right to you? They are claiming that their price is USD$0.14/kWh while New York is USD$0.30/kWh.
Yes, I guess that converts properly. They should have used PGE in California at $.58 /kWh (max summer peak rate). Appologies if I inferred the graphic was innacurate.
The graphic says it uses Tariff rates for 275kWh/month. PG&E E-1 is only $0.1323/kWh at that monthly usage level (Below Baseline). Charging an EV 1,000mi/month will probably consume 390kWh/month though, so it's not really that relevant.
Does anyone in the US stay below baseline?
Doubtful. However, that is reasonable for a typical HK flat.
Does any one know? Will Tesla answer that? HK Electric current tariff is HK$0.602 per kWh therefore to fill 85kWh it'll cost me $52. I don't know about wastage and I have heard that last few % of battery pack is hard to fill. Unless someone has a private meter and read kWh off after a charge I think this is still mystery.
You could check by charging at an EV Power charger (e.g. at IFC Mall Car Park). It shows you the kWh used.
also who cares about the cost as long as we all save our planet and only drive electric cars.
So I've been asked a few times by friends and family and finally decided to calc it. The cost I get is approximately HK$100 to run 284KM. Which is close to what Lext had before on HK$120 to fill a the 85 battery (the 85 battery at 90% charge gives me 344 KM average range).
So $120/344 = $0.35/k, doesn't matter as long as it's zero emission. I would certainly do a long term tracking of the actual cost per km when I have my Tesla. I presume Tesla's supercharging station is free in Hong Kong?
Of course it is free.
I suppose those EV power chargers are also free.
We have had our car for 1 month now (1100 km)... and not once charged at home... total cost: HKD 120,- in parking fee's...
