Electric vehicles (EVs) cost less to operate than gas-powered cars 

EV operation can be three to five times cheaper than gasoline and diesel-powered cars, depending on local gasoline and electric rates.

EVs are environmentally friendly

EVs have no tailpipe emissions. The facility producing your electricity may produce emissions, but electricity from hydro, solar, nuclear or wind-powered plants is generally emission-free.

Never go to the gas station again

Electric vehicles do not require gasoline and can be charged at home with a standard 120V outlet or a 240V level 2 charger can be installed for faster, more efficient charging. However, a level 2 charger may require electrical upgrades to your home or the electrical service that feeds your home, creating additional costs. 

EV performance benefits shine

Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation, stronger acceleration and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered internal combustion engines.

EV driving range and recharge time are perfect for commute

An EV range is typically around 80 to over 330 miles on a full charge. The average American’s daily round-trip commute is less than 30 miles. Fully recharging the battery pack can take four to eight hours. A “fast charge” to 80% capacity can take about 30 minutes.
