Check Out Incentives
There are many incentives that can make purchasing an electric vehicle cost-efficient. Possible available incentives include, federal, state, and local tax incentives, HOV lane access, as well as insurance, parking,
home charging station and utility incentives. These incentives, combined with potential savings on fuel and maintenance are a few reasons that make electric vehicles (EVs) a financial no-brainer.
Going The Distance
The latest electric vehicle models boast sporty acceleration, nimble handling, and more range than ever before. Some of today’s EVs have a driving range of over 250 miles per charge. With a variety of body styles to choose from, there should be an EV that is designed to go the distance that fits your lifestyle.
Some current electric vehicles models allow a nearly full charge on a DC fast charge station that could be completed within 15-30 minutes1, depending on the size of the vehicle’s battery. Improved technology on both electric vehicle
and fast charging stations will allow charging at speeds up to 20 miles per minute, so a vehicle charge could be completed in approximately the same amount of time that it takes to fill a gas tank2.
You Can Feel
With responsive torque from standstill, EVs accelerate quickly, and offer a quiet comfortable ride. The acceleration and the quiet cabin are just a few reasons that make EVs fun to drive. Link to EV driver stories below. Go see for yourself, test-drive an EV at a dealer near you.
With over 17,500 stations sites across the nation, an EV charge is closer than you may think. Multiple websites and charging station location Apps make finding a station easy, so you can have peace of mind knowing when a charger is nearby.
On the Way
Many vehicle manufacturers offer EV models, so finding the perfect match for your lifestyle is easier than ever before. From compacts to full-size sedans to SUVs, there are now EVs for many lifestyles.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have comparable range and performance to their gasoline counterparts. The reasons to consider hydrogen-powered vehicles are that their range and refueling times are often
comparable to internal combustion vehicles, and these vehicles also feature the power and performance of an electric drive-train. See the availability and specifications of hydrogen vehicles in the link below.
