How is this calculated?

Savings are an indicative estimate only and actual results may vary. Fuel prices have been sourced from the Western Australian Government’s FuelWatch website and are based on 140.4 cents per litre which is the average price from [01/07/16] to [30/06/17]. Energy prices are based on exclusively charging the EV at the EV off-peak rate of 19.7672c per unit. For more information go to the Products and Prices page on our website. Running costs sourced from the Green Vehicle Guide © Commonwealth of Australia (Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development) 2014. Maintenance costs are indicative only and may vary from vehicle to vehicle. They also depend on the type of trip and distance travelled. The calculator assumes an EV will have a 3 cents per kilometre saving over a non EV.
