Don't forget that it takes far more than 10 ampere-hours of charging current to achieve a 10 ampere-hour level of charge in a battery. When you figure out how much fossil fuel the power plant has to burn to charge your vehicle you come out behind.

Also, the batteries will only give that 112 mile figure for the first few weeks. Then they begin to deteriorate. Then there's the problems with hot vs cool weather.

You may feel better thinking that you are saving the environment by using an EV. It's self-delusion. No EV is more efficient in using fossil fuel than a Hybrid or even a TDI diesel.
