Sure, and average vehicle ownership length is 6.5 years, so the original owners never "break even" on an EV.

Then there's the lost investment potential of paying more upfront for a vehicle, which is the opportunity cost.

EV's aren't at parity with ICE for the typical person yet. The earliest prediction I've seen is 2025, but I think that's still optimistic. I'll go with 2030 as a WAG.
