Re: The costs of owning a car in Switzerland?

Real world data for my (used) Tesla Model S 85 which we drove for 3 years and 95000 km

Purchase price (3 years ago): 63k

Annual costs:
Insurance, full casco Zurich: 2000 (we're in our late 20's)
Road tax: 750 (heavy car in BL, some cantons it would be 0)
Maintenance and repairs: ~700
Fuel: 0
Tires: 500/year (800 for a new set)
Annual cost w/o depreciation: 3950

Depreciation is the big bit which cost about 25k in the past 3 years.

Per KM cost ends up being extremely low across 3 years at 39 cents per km which as I calculate is on par with a golf GTD. We only managed to get about 200 CHF of fines in that time thanks to the cruise control.
Crikey, zero fuel cost ? Thatís amazing. Do you have a big solar installation at home or something ?
