I found my original delivery post. Today is my nine year anniversary of taking delivery. The replacement battery still has all its bars and it is still my daily driver. It’s been a great car and the cost per mile over its life is orders of magnitude cheaper than an ICE vehicle.
It's great that your LEAF is serving you so well, but the "order of magnitude" term has a fairly well understood meaning, at least in engineering circles, and it's somewhat unlikely that your $/mi is even ONE order of magnitude cheaper, let alone several. How about just saying, "much cheaper", and let it go at that?
Sorry, I didn’t know this was an IEEE conforming site.
So I probably added an ‘s’ to “orders of magnitude”
I haven’t owned and driven a car for 9 years since forever.
Every time I’m a passenger in an ICE I feel like I’ve taken a step back.
It also costs a lot of energy and money to have built and then buy a new car every three years. I’ve driven this for 9 years almost daily.
Maybe “cost of ownership“ is a better term, but thanks for your negativity.
