A number of recent events have pointed to the convergence point for electric vehicles overtaking fossil vehicles in a 5 year window between 2025 and 2030. The first tipping point will be total cost of ownership around 2025, the second tipping point will be when upfront cost of EV drops below fossil around 2030.
It is now exactly two years since I purchased my Mitsubishi Outlander Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. This is a good point to consider the long term ownership of the car, and whether my expectations and the promises made by the manufacturer were met.
Since my last update a month ago I've done some serious driving, adding 2500km to the odometer.
This allowed me to conduct two further tests;
Extended distance driving with battery + petrol
A full fuel cycle of petrol only
