When it comes to electric vehicles, which ones are the cheapest to charge and drive per mile? Zutobi answered this question in its EV Miles report.

In Zutobi’s research, Tesla took the top three spots for the cheapest EVs to charge and drive. Tesla Model 3 (Standard Range Plus) claimed the first spot, followed by Tesla Model 3 (Standard Range Plus LFP) and Tesla Model 3 (Long Range Dual Motor). All these Tesla vehicles allow you to drive over 3,000 miles on $100 worth of electricity.

According to the report, the Standard Range Plus and the Standard Range Plus LFP cost $6.35 to full charge, while the Long Range Dual Motor costs $8.88 to fully charge. For estimated cost to charge per 100 miles, the Standard Range Plus costs $3.02, the Standard Range Plus LFP is $3.10, and the Long Range Dual Motor is $3.12.

Additionally, the report analyzed data to figure out which states were the cheapest to drive the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus. Oklahoma took the top spot with an estimated cost to fully charge at $4.46 and an estimated cost per 100 miles of $2.12. Missouri took second with an estimated cost to fully charge at $4.69 and an estimated cost per 100 miles of $2.23. Nebraska came in third with an estimated cost to fully charge at $4.71 and an estimated cost per 100 miles of $2.24.

What’s the most expensive state to charge this Tesla EV? That spot goes to Hawaii with an estimated cost to fully charge at $15.28 and an estimated cost per 100 miles of $7.27.

For this report, Zutobi took the usable battery capacity (kWh) and the real range (miles) to figure out the estimated cost to charge, the estimated cost per mile, the estimated cost per 100 miles, and how many miles per $100 for each vehicle and state in the U.S.
