What is the cost of ownership of an electric car versus a gas vehicle?

Cost of ownership is much less because you won't have to pay for a lot of the usual maintenance you're used to with a gas-powered vehicle. Click below to use the cost of ownership calculator.

Because the 2019 Nissan LEAF doesn't have a traditional powertrain, it lacks a lot of the parts you'd find on a gas or diesel vehicle. There's no tailpipe, no transmission, and no gas engine. As such, a lot of services you're used to getting will become a thing of the past. You won't need to replace spark plugs or change your oil. And because there's no tailpipe emissions, you'll never have to get an emissions check. [[154]]
