Affordable to Buy
Thanks to new technology, competition and electric vehicle tax credits, EVs are more affordable than ever, and can be less expensive to own than a combustion-engine vehicle. And, the growing supply of pre-owned EVs makes owning these vehicles even more affordable yet.
Keeps You Going
Many new EVs exceed 300 miles on a single charge and can drive coast to coast using an ever growing network of charging stations. If you want fuel flexibility, check out plug-in hybrids - which use electric for daily commuting and gasoline for longer road trips.
Affordable to Own
The cost to charge an electric vehicle is about one-third the cost to fuel a gas-powered vehicle - and even less with off-peak charging. Maintenance costs for an electric vehicle are also about one-third that of a gas model.
Easy to Refuel
Refueling at home or work happens in the background while you go about your daily activities or at night while you sleep.
What You Need to Know About Electric Vehicles
It's as simple as plugging in your phone. The most convenient places for electric vehicle charging are at home or work. Simply connect the vehicle to a standard outlet or a charging station. Then charging occurs while you go on with your life.
All electric vehicles come with a charging cord that can be used in a regular, 120-volt outlet. Some electric vehicles come with a charging cord that can be used in a 240-volt outlet (like a dryer outlet) for faster charging. A qualified electrical contractor can evaluate your home wiring to determine the best approach for electric vehicle charging at home.
Charging stations are available in your community and along highways so you can drive long distances. Many businesses, government offices and institutions like libraries, schools and colleges provide electric vehicle charging stations. Services such as Blink, ChargePoint, Chargeway, Electrify America, PlugShare and Tesla have websites and mobile apps to help you find where to charge an electric vehicle. They also provide information about how fast your electric vehicle can be refueled and whether the charging equipment is compatible with your electric vehicle.
Adding electric vehicle charging stations in a parking lot or garage can make a business more attractive to customers and employees. Installing charging stations is simpler and less expensive than you may think. Tax credits from federal and state governments also may be available.
