In my experience I bought a Leaf for $12,000, but only paid $9,000 or so for it because of the Colorado Tax credit (which was available for used cars that year.) Most of my driving was off of free charging (Colorado is has lots of free charging.) Even on my 400 trip to Rifle I didn't pay a cent on electricity.

Over a year later I sold it for $7,000. So I lost about $2,000 on it. About what I would have paid in fuel.
