You even almost lost me with your post full of actual values, it was not very readable, but hey! who am I to criticize... 🤔Yep - comparing EVs via MPG is pointless (as it relies on cost of petrol or diesel to be useful). But if you want to figure out how an EV will (or wont) fit your use case, knowing how much it might cost you (or save you) in todays prices can be useful. Thats what Parkers miles per pound is attempting.
Now for some clarity, unless you are using MPG to mean something other than miles per gallon, how can the cost of electricity change an MPG? A mile is a linear distance and a gallon is a statutory volume. I do acknowledge they may have differences under different weights and measures around the world.
And a side note for Roger,
These differences do mean that for example an MPG quoted in the USA is not the same as we would get in old blighty, because both the American Mile and gallon are different to our imperial measures.
