Understanding Your Electric Vehicle

Why should you drive electric?

There are so many reasons drivers make the switch to electric vehicles. Here are some reasons why you should consider going electric:

  • Public charging options are more readily available and growing
  • They're less expensive to fuel because electricity prices are cheaper than gas
  • Fueling your car with electricity can reduce emissions to about 1/3 of conventional vehicles*
  • Reduced maintenance costs saves money on oil changes, tune-ups, and parts
  • Federal tax credits, local vehicle incentives, and a growing inventory of used vehicles help make EVs more affordable
  • They're smooth-shifting, quiet, and offer an energizing driving experience

Energy Saving Tip

Energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs may cost a bit more up front, but they can save big money over the life of the product. Plus, some energy-efficient equipment may be eligible for rebates to offset the initial cost.
