Nissan Leafs Bring $110,000 In Annual Savings To Houston City Government | CleanTechnica

Originally published on EV Obsession.

We’ve written about it many times: electric cars are much, much cheaper to run. Based on the average price of electricity in the US, gas at $3.50/gallon, and the average miles driven per year, the Nissan Leaf costs $473.98/year to fuel while the Nissan Rogue costs $1,965.25/year to fuel. Furthermore, there are big maintenance savings — no oil changes, no busted tubes or valves, no transmission problems, etc.

If you’re a person who drives a lot, those fuel savings from driving electric can add up fast. If you’ve got a fleet of quite active vehicles, you’ll be seeing even bigger numbers. Houston is now testament to this. The Texan city has 27 Nissan Leafs in its government fleet. It estimates that these super-efficient electric cars will save the local government about $110,000 a year.
