$0.44USD per kWh on that fast charge, FYI. That's$15.18USD gasoline equivalent (not including road tax).
But, yeah, it's a car review.  Don't get sidetracked by my post.  Just an observation.

So you multiplied 0.44 * 34.5kWh/gal to to get the equivalent energy cost per gallon, right?

Now can you tell us what the huge flaw is in that analysis?  I'll wait....
A 3.5 digit 4.5 digit 5 digit 5.5 digit 6.5 digit 7.5 digit DMM is good enough for most people.

the 2 yr mark is when the battery starts to show signs of age. loss of range. if your a in a daily charge cycle.
Im assuming that an electric vehicle is just another battery operated appliance but larger   cordless drill on wheels

The battery management strategies used in cordless tools are very different to those used in automotive. Standard warranty for an EV battery is 8yrs and has been for a while. There have been numerous discussions elsewhere on this forum...
