According to the latest J.D. Power Electric Vehicle Experience (EVX) Ownership Study, Rivian owners really like their R1T electric pickups.
As mainstream customers enter the electric vehicle market, they are focusing on the same things that have mattered them in the past — styling, quality, reliability, safety, technology — according to the latest annual study of EV owners by J.D. Power.
Jack Ewing of The New York Times, makes the case that increased competition, government incentives, and falling prices for lithium and other battery materials are making electric vehicles more affordable, and could soon be on a par with more internal combustion (ICE) cars. Perhaps even by the end of 2023.
The battery-powered version of GM’s Equinox crossover, for example, will start around $30,000 when it arrives this fall, the carmaker has said. That is $3,400 more than the least expensive gasoline-fueled Equinox. But factoring in government incentives, the electric Equinox should be cheaper. Like all electric vehicles, the car will need less maintenance, and the electricity to power it will cost less than the gasoline used by its combustion engine equivalent.
The article also makes the point that the EV will require less maintenance, and “the electricity to power it will cost less than the gasoline used by its combustion engine equivalent.”
