When it comes to charging an electric car in the USA the value you get depends on the state you live in. Zutobi, an American drivers education company, carried out a survey to find which states offered the best value for money when it comes to charging an electric car.
For the survey, Zutobi used the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which they found to be the best value electric car to charge in the USA. This was then used to see which states were the cheapest and most expensive to run this electric vehicle (EV). They found the state that offered the best value was Oklahoma.
For $100 of charging, the Model 3 would be able to cover an impressive 4,709 miles (7578km). This averages out to a cost of around $0.021 per mile or $2.12 per 100 miles (161km). A full charge of the Model 3 would cost a mere $4.46. These figures are hugely impressive and offer massive savings compared to an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle.
Missouri was the second-best value state when it comes to charging, with Nebraska third. The most expensive state to charge up in was Hawaii, which is no surprise being an island in the middle of the Pacific. This was followed by Rhode Island and Massachusetts in New England, which were the second and third most expensive states to charge up.
