Did You Know?

Savings

The average EV driver saves over $700 a year by driving electric.

Happy Cars

By 2040, roughly 1 in 3 new vehicle sales could be an EV.

Which EV Is Right for Me?

  • Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) run only on electric power from a battery.
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) have a backup gas engine and plug in to charge.
  • Hybrids (like Toyota Prius) have a gas engine that charges a small battery, so they don’t plug in.

Consider your price point

Plug-in hybrids start in the upper $20,000s new, and many all-electric vehicles are under $10,000 used.

Pick an EV that works for your driving habits

You can get from 25 to 250+ miles of electric range in a PHEV or BEV, respectively; a PHEV’s gas engine can help you take longer trips.

Look into incentives

There are many state and local rebates for driving electric.

How many seats do you need?

Consider an electric SUV or minivan if you have a big family.

There are more than 40 EV models available, from sedans to SUVs.
