EV 101

More information on EVs: how to charge, where to charge, and more.

All electric vehicles have an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. The vehicle uses a large battery to power the electric motor and must be plugged in to a charging station or wall outlet to charge. EVs have no tailpipe exhaust, and they do not contain the typical fuel components, such as a fuel pump, fuel line or fuel tank. This means less fuel costs and lower overall cost of ownership. If you’re thinking about an EV, here are some things to consider:

How much range you need

If your daily commute is 80 miles or less, most models will get you there on one charge. If you are going further, consider a model with ranges of 200+ miles per charge. Find your ride.

How to charge your EV

There a plenty of places to charge your EV, either at work, at home, or on the go. Your charging time will depend on the type of charger you use.
