I'm getting tired of reading that a $33,000 or $40,000 electric car is expensive and only for "upscale motorists". If they would just make this comparison:
ICE car payment + gasoline cost + oil/etc expenses
BEV car payment + electricity cost
... they would realize these BEVs are quite comparable to an affordable ICE car.
Elon says the Model S price is equivalent to a Ford Taurus.

Guess that didn't quite work out, unless the price of a Taurus is going up next year.
He is correct if you factor the total cost of ownership, ie the cost of maintenance, fuel etc. over the life of the car.
Did he actually use those qualifiers in the original statement?
Yes he does.
There you go.
I think he said something like 'if gas was $5 a gallon, the car would become a $35,000 car in 5 years' or something like that.
From a newsletter I can't find on-line
That's quite a bit different than saying it's the same cost as a Taurus. Ownership costs of a vehicle during a lease period including driving expenses are not the same as vehicle purchase costs. However, looking at the cost of a Taurus SHO model, if you load it up with everything and compare it to a base model Model S with the rebate, you'd be pretty close. http://www.ford.com/cars/taurus/trim/?trim=sho So technically you could say the Model S will be the same price as a Ford Taurus since you aren't saying which Ford Taurus.
