Over 500k American people already made the switch.
Electric vehicles are the future of vehicle transportation. Plug-in electric vehicles are now feasible for most lifestyles and budgets. EV prices will continue to decrease while their range will continue to increase.
Besides the current financial savings on fueling a vehicle with electricity (which equates to approximately the same as gas at $1/gallon), electricity prices are much more stable than volatile gasoline prices and this allows EV owners to avoid the risk of future price surges of gasoline. For an average person that drives 12,000 miles/year – a gasoline powered vehicle driver will spend around $1,600 in gasoline verse an EV driver who would spend around $450 for electricity… or $5,750 in five years!
Externalities, or the side effect of pollution, resulting from emissions is a public health concern. EV’s have no tailpipe emissions such as carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide, (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM), formaldehyde (HCHO), non-methane organic gases (NMOG), or non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC), and therefore provide a real benefit to improving air quality for you, your family, and your community.
EV’s are more convenient than petroleum-powered vehicles and require less maintenance. Besides that fact that EV’s never require a trip to the gas station, charging can be done when you are sleeping at night, or during the day while at work, shopping or dining. EV’s are relatively simple machines and have much less moving parts than gasoline cars. There are a lot of fewer things to break which results in maintenance costs being less.
EV’s will improve our society, the environment, and our economy. EV’s have a smaller environmental impact than gasoline powered vehicles. EV’s put fewer greenhouse gases into our atmosphere compared to vehicles powered by gasoline. Greenhouse gases are associated with climate change and driving an EV will substantially reduce your carbon footprint.
