I enjoyed solving this case, however the only part I am confused is regarding the calculations of EV revenue; why was the 'charging cycle' discarded from the calculation of the economics of EV, which eventually added up to 300 Euros in revenue. It would have been more, had the charging cycle been considered.

In classic interview form, I don't think that information is relevant when calculating the total revenue of EVs in this case. To use it, you would also need the time it takes to charge an EV.

Cases sometimes throw in irrelevant information to throw you off.
