DRIVING ELECTRIC...

  • Driving electric means you never have to go to a gas station (you can fuel up at home!) or get an oil change.
  • Powering them is convenient.  You can use any traditional 120V plug to charge most EVs or install a 24OV charging equipment to make charging quicker.
  • You can also charge your EV at public charging stations that are found on apps like PlugShare.
  • Electric cars will reduce our nation’s transportation petroleum consumption.  

  • No oil or gas means no oil spills on our coasts.

  • 20-45 million electric vehicles could offset any gasoline extracted from the currently
    protected areas of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Eastern Gulf of Mexico combined!

  • The quickest production car in the world is electric. The Tesla SP100D has a 0-60 time of 2.28 seconds

  • Electric vehicles must meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and undergo the same rigorous safety testing as conventional vehicles sold in the United States.

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE DRIVING ELECTRIC 

COST

The lifetime cost to own an electric vehicle is often lower compared to a traditional car because of lower maintenance and fuel cost. The purchase price of an EV or PHEV may be higher than a traditional car.  However, they qualify for Federal Tax Credits up to $7,500 based on the size of the battery. Some states have a State Tax Credit.
