This article compares the cost of purchasing and fueling a Tesla Model 3 vs. a Toyota Camry LE hybrid.

The Toyota costs $11,805 less, and the cost per mile of fueling it is 5 cents per mile, compared to 7 cents per mile for the Tesla Model 3.



For fuel prices, I'm using today’s nationwide average gasoline price of $2.59 per gallon and $0.28 per kWh that Tesla charges at its Supercharger stations.

Even if electricity were 100% free, it would take 20 years for the Tesla to pay off the Toyota’s $11,805 price advantage.

But of course electricity isn’t free, and the $11,805 also carries an opportunity cost, which at 5% is almost $600 per year or similar to the Toyota’s entire annual gasoline cost.
