The Cybertruck’s good looks have already made it a cultural icon since it’s launch in November of last year – but that’s not the only benefit to owning one.

A plethora of savvy drivers have taken to social media to share why buying a Tesla was a smart financial idea.

One X user, Bilal Sattar posted about his experience.

He even shared his electric bill to demonstrate the cost of running his Tesla for six months.

More specifically he showed how much he paid to recharge on the approximate 10,000 miles he drove – and it’s impressive.

Unbelievably, the total cost comes to $573.55.

That’s a snip compared to what it would’ve cost to run a gas-guzzling car for the same distance – around $2,392.

Sattar’s post also contains screenshots directly from the Tesla app.

This give a side-by-side comparison to underline the financial smarts of switching from a gas-powered car to an EV.

But, if the truth be told, Sattar has done a good job driving that distance at such a low cost.

A quick looks at his X feed suggests that Sattar is clever with his destinations, often picking stopping points where there are free chargers.

That alone is rare, as free chargers often only act as pilots for new charging locations.

In other news, Tesla owners have run into trouble amid freezing temperatures.

Nevertheless, the real key to Sattar’s success is evident in an electric bill his shared last October, showing he actually put wattage into the grid rather than taking it out.

It appears Sattar uses solar charging to offset his energy usage or even account for it completely.

It’s another case underlining how a home solar setup can have you driving around at little to no cost, which is likely to convince plenty of people that should add panels to their home if they can.

At the end of the day, if someone offered you the chance to rack up 10,000 miles and only pay $573 for it, you’d probably snap their hand off.
