    Russ, can you find out for your readers what the total cost of an EV’s ton-mile is? In short, given that today electricity still comes off the grid (fossil fuels, hydro, wind, solar), and that making electricity requires one more energy transformation step until it’s used to charge a battery (another step down), what is the fully burdened ton-mile operating cost of a battery powered car?
