Cost of Ownership
Event ReportOne of the greatest misconceptions about EVs is that they're too costly and out of reach for moderate and low-income individuals. Our webinar delivers on helping to break down this barrier with streamlining access to incentives, rebates, and buying used and leasing options.

We’ll discuss electric vehicle basics: charging, battery range, new vs. used, and the following financial considerations:
- EV costs are going down and incentives are generous, making these cars a smart financial choice for more families – in many cases even more affordable than a gas car.
- Households making under $104,800 (for a family of 4) can qualify for $14,000 in incentives (which could pay the entire cost of a three-year EV lease) or get a $5,000 grant toward a used EV
- Other incentives are available for drivers of all income levels.
- EV fuel costs the equivalent of $1.50/gallon of gasoline.
- EVs have half the maintenance costs of gasoline vehicles.
- EVs are very fun to drive, convenient to refuel, have zero tailpipe emissions, and reduce carbon pollution by 75-100%.
