Ok, I tried to find a thread about this, but other than some single posts hinting at the point I am looking for in various threads, I couldn't find anything about this. My question is, now that the Model S is around an quantity, how is it affecting the electricity bill of its owners. I know it is often stated how much money you can save when comparing the S to an ICE "fuel"-wise, but how is it in real life? I am asking this especially now that we know about things like the power drain in cold weather, which I am sure will factor in quite a bit into the equation. Also the often stated "advantage" of being able to plug in the S every night at one's own home to start each day with a full, say 200 to 250 mile, range will have an effect. Not having known a lot about EVs before I joined this forum, I quite naively assumed that an EV was somewhat like a mobile phone (or any other rechargable-battery-driven device). I.e. you charge the battery to full, then use the device until the battery is completely/almost completely empty, at which point you plug it in and recharge it to full and the circle of life begins anew. I therefor also assumed (when I did the simple math for my first cost comparison) that the Model S gets me 300 miles (ok now I know 265 miles under EPA conditions) per charge of 85 kWh. That way I also calculated without any losses, which of course I know now was completely unrealistic. But how does the S fare under realistic conditions? If I plug in the car each night, I never really know how much electricity it actually uses in total over a given period of time, or do I? Does anyone have an idea about what the real usage is, when plugging in the car (almost) every night? In other words, how much it "weighs" on your electricity bill - which can make quite a difference especially if that electricity is as expensive as it is over here in Germany. Thanks in advance for your input.
