Tesla Math

.367 kWh of electricity to drive a Tesla one mile.

National average for kWh is 12 cents.

I can't do the rest of the math (insert emoticon denoting pathetic behavior).

It seems like about five cents a mile.  Maybe a little less.
Really?  So to go twenty five miles, which is about what the Batmobile gets on the highway per gallon, we're talking a buck twenty-five.  
That's my guess.  Although for reasons that may be obvious, I'm just as bad at math as you.
I hear ya, brother.
Still, that's $1.25/mile vs. about $4.  And if you charge at night, with rates lower ...
Dude, you should totally be buying one of these things.
