Electric Vehicles,

a smart transportation choice.

Electric Vehicles (EV) Cost Less To Operate Than Gas Powered Cars.
EV operation can be three to five times cheaper than gasoline and diesel powered cars, depending on your local gasoline and electric rates.

EVs Are Environmentally Friendly.
EVs have no tailpipe emissions. When you choose an EV, you're likely producing less emissions than a traditional gas-powered car.

Never Go To The Gas Station Again.
Electric vehicles do not require gasoline and can be charged at home with a standard 120V outlet or a 240V level 2 charger can be installed for faster, more efficient charging.

EV Performance Benefits.
Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation, stronger acceleration and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered internal combustion engines.

EV Driving Range & Recharge Time.
EV range is typically around 80 to over 330 miles on a full charge. The average American’s daily round-trip commute is less than 30 miles. Fully recharging the battery pack can take four to eight hours. A "fast charge" to 80% capacity can take 30 min.*

Still Uncertain?

Not ready to go full speed into electric driving by purchasing a pure electric vehicle yet? You might consider a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle or PHEV. You get the benefit of around town electric driving along with the go anywhere ability of a gasoline engine. It may just be the best balance of eco-friendly driving and convenience. No range anxiety! Another plus of the PHEV is that it qualifies for federal tax incentives of up to $7,500. Check out the PHEV models available on the Choose EV site and remember to try out the savings calculator to compare to what you are driving now.



This website is designed to provide you with information about electric vehicles and to help shape a healthy electric vehicle marketplace. You live in an ideal place to own an EV. While a good portion of the electricity in our area comes from coal and natural gas generation, when you choose EV, you’re likely producing less emissions than a traditional gas-powered car.
