Three years ago I ran across some information that helped me understand the true cost of owning a car, and I was shocked to learn that over the years I have spent anywhere from 15-25% of my income to own and operate a vehicle. According to one website, the yearly cost to operate my car was just over $14,000. However, I suggest calculating your own unique set of metrics, then ask yourself what benefits you might realize if you purchased an electric bike. Try running these calculations yourself on either one of these links: Kelly Blue Book, or the True Cost of Driving to broaden your knowledge base, and remember to always remain open to the possibility of change.
I love sharing my passion for electric bikes, and I wish you the very best in your own passionate journey.
