In the past six months of car sales, it can be seen that gasoline powered vehicles have continuously lowered their prices in order to maintain sales, resulting in a continuous increase in sales. However, the performance of new energy models is also very strong. BYD Motors sold 1.0983 million vehicles in the first half of the year, firmly ranking first in the sales chart. Its pure electric model Qin EV sold 2550 vehicles in the past June, with a cumulative sales of 16312 vehicles this year. So, how does this car perform? Is the cost of using cars high? Let’s take Qin EV 2021 Standard Edition as an example and analyze it together.

Qin EV adopts a family style design style, with a simple and youthful overall appearance. The horizontal front and middle grille effectively stretches the width, with a length, width, and height of 4675x1770x11500mm, and a wheelbase of 2670mm; The rear design of the car is simple, and there is a chrome trim connecting the tail lights in the middle. The interior features a 10.1-inch central control screen, built-in intelligent connectivity features such as car networking and OTA upgrades, and is equipped with a DiLink intelligent connectivity system.

In terms of power, the electric motor is equipped with a maximum total power of 100kW and a maximum total torque of 180N · m. It is equipped with a lithium iron phosphate battery with a battery capacity of 47.53kWh. The pure electric range of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is up to 405km, and the power consumption per 100 kilometers is 11.8kWh.

Next, let’s take a look at the cost of vehicle insurance. In the first year, we need to pay mandatory insurance of 950 yuan, including 2 million yuan, 1917 yuan, 2533 yuan for vehicle damage insurance, 150 yuan for personnel on board, and a total premium of 5550 yuan. There is no need to purchase a new car with purchase tax. Of course, the prices of different companies may vary, and in the absence of accidents, the premium will be reduced in the later stage.

Let’s take a look at the charging cost again. We calculate it based on driving 10000 kilometers per year, and the official power consumption per 100 kilometers is 11.8 kWh. Therefore, if we charge slowly for 8000 kilometers at 0.5 yuan per kilowatt hour, the charging cost is 460 yuan. If we charge quickly for 2000 kilometers, it is 1.6 yuan per kilowatt hour, and the charging cost is 377.6 yuan. The total charging cost is 837.6 yuan, of course, calculated based on the actual local electricity cost.

In terms of maintenance, pure electric vehicle maintenance involves checking the three electrical systems. The first maintenance is free, and the later maintenance involves replacing consumable parts. However, there are also parking fees, car washing fees, road and bridge crossing fees, and violation fines. In total, we calculate them at 300 yuan per year.

Summary: From the above analysis, it can be seen that the insurance cost is 5550 yuan, the charging cost is 837.6 yuan, and the maintenance and miscellaneous expenses are 300 yuan, totaling 6687.6 yuan, with an average monthly cost of 557.3 yuan. Is this maintenance cost acceptable to everyone? Welcome to leave a comment.
