Electric Car’s Future Values
Electric car’s future values inevitably will increase with technological advances.
Again, TESLA is leading the way in an amazing technology.
Does a TESLA swap station eliminate future concerns of battery degradation?
Batteries replacement may cost a LEAF owner $5500 plus 3 hrs of labour available
by 2017. However, it is doubtful wether any one will actually replace a LEAF battery before 2025. The EVs would have accumulated more than enough in gas savings to pay for the new batteries. This beats buying a new car.
Now a TESLA on the other hand may just pay $50 at a battery swap station in order to get a new battery or reconditioned one. A great saving on your Tesla investment.
Electric car owners eliminate gas car charges from their credit cards and instead accumulate wealth. WE are in the 21st century and buying an electric car just feels right.
What happens when a used LEAF is only $2000 or less by 2025? Even though US used LEAFs are inexpensive right now
( due to high incentives ) this may actually not happen. More and more people finely realize the error of their ways in buying a gas car and higher demand may actually increase the value of our used EVs. New cars will cost more and more over time. A future loss of incentive grands and tax credits may also increase EV values.
The world wide carbon credit value increases every day and is being tracked.
Electrification will contribute to longer lives and decrease world wide casualties and health problems now evident by the use of fossil fuels.
Switching to solar charging, where ever possible is imperative in pre-emptying the argument of “coal power generation” as a dirty way to get our EV power. We aim to use only clean hydro power in British Columbia. China and the US are building lower and zero emission systems now.
Slowly but surely the world is coming around to greener sustainable energy sources.
