    EV calculator

    I've started an EV calculator here:

    EV calculator

    I'm looking to add all of the EV releated calculations into a single location. Please let me know your thoughts; what features can we add to it?

    Nice, I like that feature on savings and I could add CO2 over the lifetime of the var.

    Yes, NICE. I like the side-by-side "racing bars" between ICE & EV.

    Looks like CODA stipulates an average 354 Wh/mile of electricity used for the 2011 Sedan in their Impact Calculator ... which is pretty reasonable considering losses during charging, etc.

    Nice. I haven't gotten to play with it yet, but I notice the "" in the upper left corner. This is the UTF-8 BOM (byte order mark). It's such a nuisance that the web is full of information about it. Some editors allow you to save as UTF-8 without the BOM, some need to be tricked with a meta tag.
    HTML Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii" />
    If you can get the specifics on a number of cars, a drop-down list of presets would be a cool addition.

    Nice calculator. Maybe an overview of how many miles you drove in one year and the total number of CO2 you saved in that year can be useful.

    Nice job Michael.

    Do you know of anyone / any company that has developed a calculator to compare the cost of a Model S + estimated operating costs for the first 5 years compared with a lower priced ICE vehicle's cost + estimated operating costs for the first 5 years?

    (Purpose being to show in a spreadsheet format the comparative total cost (purchase & operating costs) of (example) a $55,000 EV = the equivalent of say a (example)$35,000 ICE vehicle?)

    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot, Michael. That calculator can expand into an invaluable tool to dismiss anti-EV propaganda.

    I understand that the CO2 calculation is lb of CO2 per mile driven?

    Would like to second the suggestion by jcstp and expand it a little: like many web sites have a language selector, make the EV calculator have a unit selector. It switches between SI, and imperial/US metric.
    consumption units: mpg (US) or mpg (imp) <-> liters per 100km
    CO2 mass unit lbs <-> g
    distance units miles <-> km
