The 2022 Nissan LEAF and Nissan Armada are on winning streaks when it comes to KBB.com’s annual 5-Year Cost to Own Awards – five years in a row for the LEAF electric vehicle and two years in a row for the flagship Armada full-size SUV.
Interesting article that spans the non-pickup market - from an actual useable EV to the large luxury SUV. Having an oldie but goodie Suburban as the work horse hauler and the SV+ as the go-to any other time is working well for me.

Another good article with some data points on ICE vs EV "refueling" costs...

Hummm, just today I drove 105 miles can consumed 28.63 kWh which at our off peak rate of .0603 turns in to $1.73 to go approx. 100 miles. And that is at 266 Wh/Mile or just under 4 miles per kw in Leaf speak :) If I would have had to supercharge it would have been about $7
2013 S W/QC 131k miles - 51.33Ahr - 78.48SOH - 68.70Hx - 223GID - down 2 bars
2018 Tesla 3 SR+ 60k miles - 238 Wh/mile
2012 Volt 112k miles
3.3 kw solar pv - XW6048 - eight L16's
4 ton GSHP - 1 ton ASHP
2003 VW TDI 230k miles - 49 mpg lifetime
