    You need to take your whole Electric Bill and divide out the kwh. That 50 dollar utility tax and all the other fees were not in your calculations. Fuel charge is only a fraction of the bill. This is fake news for click bait dumb people.

  2. Hugh John on March 26, 2022 at 5:48 am

    Jesus Christ i gave up after 1 min , ever heard of get to the point !!!!

  3. Spirit Iam on March 26, 2022 at 5:48 am

    and what happens when the Grid goes down? What happens when an electric car gets flooded by water? How often do the batteries start on fire? how bad are batteries on the environment, compared to fuel? How much is it to replace a battery? Are there zones where there isn’t chargers available ? hmmm…

  4. Jon Sanchez on March 26, 2022 at 5:52 am

    At minute 7:15 you get the answer you’re looking for.
    Around $35 for 700 miles per month on her electric variables.

  5. Joey Johnson on March 26, 2022 at 5:53 am

    2,400kwh monthly usage is INSANE. Peak usage month for my (humid/hot/Kansas) 2,500sqft house (July/August) is usually no higher than 1,000-1,100kwh.

  6. Quinton Smith on March 26, 2022 at 5:54 am

    The price of electricity will eventually go up and surpass the price of gasoline due to increased demand!

  7. Deathstar320 on March 26, 2022 at 5:55 am

    100 miles is around 5$ or so

  8. Robert Smith on March 26, 2022 at 5:57 am

    On another note. I like the Austin area and surroundings to be a secret. Especially when people are moving there from other states. It’s getting too packed now. The opposite reason why people were moving there.

  9. Trevor Morgan on March 26, 2022 at 5:57 am

    This video was probably one of the most well thought-out and researched videos I’ve seen in quite a while. Seriously, there’s so much junk on YouTube now-a-days that finding an informative video like this where someone actually does their "homework" on the topic deserves an applause! Great job!👏

  10. don bon on March 26, 2022 at 5:57 am

    she uses her ass to pay for the electric bill, mouth for the internet/cable and the full works for her rent each week

  11. Luis astudillo on March 26, 2022 at 5:57 am

    Tesla is a fraud.

  12. F. Mako Koiwai on March 26, 2022 at 5:58 am

    Obviously depends on how much one drives. We’ve been using EV’s for over 7 years, using only 110V charging, at home. It costs us around $1/car/day. My wife drives a bit less then 10K miles/year, with her Volt. We rarely need to add gas to it. I’m retired and put 9,500 miles on my Tesla 3 over 20 months, including a 2,500+ trip from LA to Idaho and back. Huge Savings!

  13. ZEROKOOL-20 on March 26, 2022 at 5:58 am

    Most gas tanks are like 600 miles??

    WHERE?? Lol my car is 350-370 depending.

  14. Yair Val on March 26, 2022 at 5:59 am

    the rich enjoy, the poor, we pay for gas

  15. MCES LEX on March 26, 2022 at 6:00 am

    Tesla’s EV’s
    #1. No right to repair – this alone will make your repairs 10 times to 20 times more expensive than an ICEV, including maintenance, no EV parts at your local Auto parts store, Ouch! This one hurts, you have to mail order your parts from Tesla 😂
    #2. Your life revolves around charging your vehicle 😂
    #3. Tesla extremely poor build quality, they use glue to glue parts together and when you’re driving down the freeway it falls apart, WTF 👌
    #4. Elon Musk the politician he’s the biggest one there is 👌
    #5 you have to drive the car 30 years to recoup the money invested in an EV 😂
    #6. Extremely low resale value, expect to lose half the cost of your Tesla EV in a couple of years 😂😂
    #7. If 100% of the population goes electric, electric rates Will go up 10-20 times, there’s not enough electricity to go around, ask Texas, Texas doesn’t even have EV’s and they can’t manage their electricity 🤣🤣🤣

  16. theloniousMac on March 26, 2022 at 6:01 am

    You rent? You?

  17. Robert Smith on March 26, 2022 at 6:02 am

    So electricity use goes up. How is electricity made?

  18. RICK Carr on March 26, 2022 at 6:04 am

    If you go to bill prowse on YouTube he charges Tesla for free by using solar check him out.

  19. Not One on March 26, 2022 at 6:05 am

    FUCK electric vehicles!!! JOKE!! Just MORE government Bullshit meddling!! So in theory if everyone was STUPID enough and sold their beloved fossil fuel vehicles and all went electric. Well what happens when our SHIT Corrupt U.S. government cuts off ALL power grids!!!! Then NO ONE is independent and can go anywhere!!!! NO ONE has EVER mentioned or brought up THIS aspect!!!!

  20. DasShape on March 26, 2022 at 6:06 am

    Until they produce electricity without fossil fuels, this is all bullshit.. and gas is cheaper. These cars r not for anyone that makes under 100k a year. I’d love to own a ev. I made 83k last year and in no way can I afford a ev. I got a 96 accord that gets 30 mph on highway and and I can fill it up for 15 bucks and get 250 miles per tank. It’s my beater car and I drive it to work. Until these ev’s come way down its not gonna be mass adapted.

  21. RJM on March 26, 2022 at 6:06 am

    $5.875 per gallon today in California x 13 gallon tank = $76.38 for about 380 to 400 miles or about 19¢ per mile for gasoline.

    Just Googled gas price, the average tank size, and mileage numbers.

    A kilowatt hour is the equivalent to a 1000 watt heater running for an hour. E=IR… Volts = Amps x Resistance. Watts is Volts x Amps so for 1000 Watts at 120 Volts it takes 8.33 Amps and 1000 Watts on continuously for an hour equals 1 Kilowatt Hour.

    For household single phase power using a plumbing analogy:
    Volts are the Pressure.
    Amps are the Flow.
    Watts are the Volume.
    Watt Hours are the Volume over Period of Time.

    Volts times Amps equals the Watts.
    Watts are the Quantity of Energy.
    Watts divided by 1000 times the Hours equals Kilowatt Hours.

    A 10ft x 10ft x 8ft high room is going to get pretty warm for only 11 to 32 cents worth of electrical stuff.

    An electric oven set at 350°F for an hour uses about 2 kilowatt hours of electricity or 22 cents worth at a good cheap rate.

    Hope that somehow helps someone somewhere someway someday.

  22. MAK Kal on March 26, 2022 at 6:06 am

    Now it’s cheaper then ever.. Right?

  23. MCES LEX on March 26, 2022 at 6:08 am

    What are you doing in your house, growing weed? The bill is so high, you probably have a mansion 👌

  24. paulie walnuts on March 26, 2022 at 6:11 am

    I must say I don’t gaf about those junk cars I like the lady😘

  25. william killingsworth on March 26, 2022 at 6:11 am

    Stop stalling you shouldn’t take 10 minutes to describe something so simple… Ain’t nobody got time for that

  26. Eliminate Cellulite Kates on March 26, 2022 at 6:12 am

    That’s for now until electric companies especially in California, where the electric companies keep coming up with reasons to increase the individyal kilowatts price. Who is owning and who are the investors what kind of returns will they get for their investment, Let’s Go Brandon! Will America pay China, for energy?? Don’t trust any of the liars.

  27. Yair Val on March 26, 2022 at 6:13 am

    btw talked for an hour non stop, got bored after a few hours of waiting i turned vid off

  28. Bic Lighter on March 26, 2022 at 6:17 am

    $36 a month instead of almost $200 in gas I’m gettin a tesla

  29. Flaming360Spider on March 26, 2022 at 6:20 am

    We are getting screwed by gas prices now for sure 😭

  30. kenny powerz on March 26, 2022 at 6:24 am

    Im already having problems paying my electric bill off on time every month. Living in SF Bay Area cost of living is crazy….fucca electric charge for 400 a month….ill stick with gas. But when i sell a couple NFTs ill be shopping for everything lol😃😃

  31. Brad Boychuk on March 26, 2022 at 6:24 am

    i live in canada on a cold night at minus 30 celsius you will loose 2 per cent battery an hour not plugged in .

  32. Don Vindicare on March 26, 2022 at 6:24 am

    Also if you do not know how or where the batteries come from. I suggest you look it up lithium is not recyclable either. Hint its not good. If you think your doing something great for the environment good luck

  33. Texas Pride on March 26, 2022 at 6:26 am

    Great video. Nice to hear honest numbers without a bias spun in.

  34. Tony Szemereta on March 26, 2022 at 6:28 am

    "uses a regular outlet like in your living room" well actually. I was asked to install an outdoor outlet for a customer who just bought an electric powered car. I had to ask, so how much 120volt power (wattage) does it take during charging? She didn’t know, called the dealer, didn’t know, call the manufacturer, got out the manual… Well it took like 14amps at 120volt if I remember correctly. As a licensed electrical contractor for 35yrs, please folks, if you buy or own an electric car, and plug it into a regular outlet, MAKE SURE THE CIRCUIT CAN HANDLE THE LOAD. So I installed a dedicated 20amp crt for the customer and with a 20amp rated GFIR and enclosed cover. And thats how you do it right

  35. FT N on March 26, 2022 at 6:30 am

    Holy shit, 2,397 kWh in the month of June in LA? Edit: Oh wait, that was 58 days.

    Your average temperature was 64°F at night and 75°F in the day. The square footage on your apartment can’t be -too- large I wouldn’t think.
    As a comparison, the average temperature was 91°F in the day and 61°F at night where I live (much farther north, with 2 more hours of daylight than LA) and my 2,050 sqft HOUSE only used 1568 kWh (with the thermostat set excessively low at 68°F) in that same 58-day period.

    You could probably cut down **significantly** on that energy bill. (For that matter, I could set my thermostat to 74°F and also save more, but I like it cold.)

  36. T'Rell Hamburg on March 26, 2022 at 6:32 am

    I’m just confused as to how she’s saying it’s so cheap but the electric bill is almost $600

  37. Kevin Sartin on March 26, 2022 at 6:33 am

    Wait until California starts taxing you a road use tax based on miles driven.

  38. Craig Francis on March 26, 2022 at 6:33 am

    Can I be ur friend

  39. Heesa Noice on March 26, 2022 at 6:33 am

    All those numbers aside , the premise is that using an EV is better for the environment, which remains blatantly false.
    Comparing the environmental impact of making an EV to the mostly unremarkable addition of carbon to our atmosphere that gas engines contribute and concluding that EV’s are less damaging is a demonstration that you know nothing about these EV cars.

    Plus we’re approaching a shortage of lithium , and that market is controlled by a small oligopoly that will own the human race once it goes full EV.

    Count me out. I don’t give a shit how little it costs to charge. That’s just the distraction.

  40. BubbleF on March 26, 2022 at 6:35 am

    6:25 A 10 minute video to tell how much a Tesla charge cost. Thank you for the video!

  41. stude1953 on March 26, 2022 at 6:39 am

    More worried about the price of using it while the car looks like a pos. An electric jellybean

  42. Eric G on March 26, 2022 at 6:41 am

    Believe me, being able to connect to your car is not special. Tesla is not doing anything revolutionary here. They have been putting computers into cars since the early 80s. Every single car made jn the last few decades is being run by a computer. Cars haven’t been mechanical for a very long time

  43. submechanophobia on March 26, 2022 at 6:41 am

    When you’ re flush enough to buy your own house, you got the perfect weather there to cover the roof with solar panels and perhaps a wind generator, if your in a breezy area. It could be possible cover most, or part of all your charging costs and be "green" at the same time. With 1.7M subs and some patreons, it should be doable.

  44. Walter Tomaszkiewicz on March 26, 2022 at 6:44 am

    Remember people once this is the norm prices will adjust for lost revenue.

  45. Wayne Bakker on March 26, 2022 at 6:45 am

    Just like any other commercial adventure before you even realize it the honeymoon will be over. Way back when I remember propane was all the rage, clean burning, efficient etc the price was a third of gasoline. After a couple of years the price shot thru the roof and actually went to double the price and now actually costs more than gasoline. If I was younger I would bank on hydrogen or solar for much higher sustainability.

  46. Nicole C on March 26, 2022 at 6:45 am

    But the car cost you 30.000 dollars more then a gas car. There not going to let you get ahead.

  47. Franklin Werren on March 26, 2022 at 6:45 am

    I expect the federal/state government will try to add a road use tax in the future for electric cars. The road use tax now is added to the gas cost now which most people do not know happens. Most money for roads comes from gas revenue stream. I hate to be the devils advocate and I like the idea of electric cars and trucks. In my house during the summer its only about 6 cents a kilowatt, in the winter its a bit higher at about 13 cents. Electric heat in the town I am in and I heat with it as well and being in the rust belt and lots of snow!!! But even if it adds 25 cents it is still cheaper than a gas car at 4.30 a gallon and maintenance for the wear parts like brakes and other stuff like the oil changes!!!

  48. Andres D on March 26, 2022 at 6:46 am

    Wow, you must no drive your Tesla a lot if you can survive charging on a 120VAC outlet. 😂

  49. Justin ayres on March 26, 2022 at 6:46 am

    £46k for a tesla model 3 if you pay back £300 a month will take you 12.7 years BEFORE you make any saving on electric v petrol or diesel as you’re up front paying £46k, by then you’ll need a new battery at £15k at least! And you damage the planet more so with lithium/cobalt and all the other stuff to make a battery, plus the damage to the environment charging the battery chugging out ethylene, carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas!!! Clean and green eh, definitely not, glorified electric shopping trollies for folks that have more money than sense!!! And clearly do not have a love for the good old clean and green ICE! Using crude oil from the ground where it’s decomposition is natural!! 😁

  50. Angela Tucker on March 26, 2022 at 6:46 am

    That power bill is 2 high! So if you get the power shut off.. then u can’t even drive anywhere..
