 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%.
