Make Your Next Car Electric

Driving electric saves money, improves your community’s air and health, and is an impactful way for you to take part in our transition to clean energy. Whether you’re planning to buy a car in the next week or the next five years, make it electric.

The ‘Going Electric’ pledge:

“I want to help accelerate the transition to 100% clean energy. I pledge to make the next vehicle I purchase an electric car.”

10 Reasons Why You Should Drive an EV

 

  1. EVs are simply better technology. Electric vehicles are more fun to drive and are far more efficient machines than traditional gas-powered vehicles. Direct drive motors (think instant power) have all the quickness of a sports car in your favorite comfortable sedan and SUV styles. 
  2. It’s American innovation at its finest. American manufacturing and technology are at their best when presented with a big problem and an emerging technology. Electric cars are one of the most exciting advancements in tech, and America can take a leadership role in the world by embracing innovation and an electrified future.
  3. EVs are cheaper to own. While some EVs have a higher sticker price than their gas counterparts, they often have lower total ownership costs because they require minimal maintenance and are cheaper to “fill up” compared to gasoline. The federal government offers tax credits of $2,500 to $7,500 per vehicle, and many states also provide rebates and tax credits for both EVs and charging infrastructure.
  4. EVs are popular. Nationwide, EV sales are expected to hit more than half a million cars sold in 2021, an increase of nearly 70%. Even in light of the pandemic, all across the globe, electric vehicles are increasing in total sales and in market share, even while traditional gasoline car sales were plummeting.
  5. EV options are exploding. With more body styles and price ranges arriving every year, EV choices are expanding rapidly. Right now, at least 56 plug-in hybrid or battery-only EVs are on the market, and almost all major automakers have committed to investing in or producing new models in more categories over the next decade.
  6. EVs require less maintenance. If you’re like most car owners, you dread heading to the dealer and forking over your life savings to replace the timing belt, transmission, or other engine parts as they age and break. Compared to conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, EVs have around 80% fewer moving parts. This translates into fewer trips to the mechanic and lower maintenance costs overall—as well as, of course, no more pesky oil changes.
  7. EVs save (a lot) on fuel costs. The average U.S. household spends a sixth of its total yearly expenditure on transportation. With an EV, you get the advantages of fueling up with electricity, which is less expensive than gasoline or diesel and generally has a more stable price. EVs are also far more efficient. Driving an EV is roughly equivalent to fueling a conventional car with gas at $1 a gallon.
  8. EV charging is getting even easier. Some battery-only EVs can reach more than 300 miles, but most range around 200-250 miles on a single charge. That’s much further than most of us drive in an average day (since most owners charge overnight at their home). Meanwhile, new charging stations are being installed all across the country, and extreme fast chargers are under development that will make refueling even easier.
  9. EVs help clean up our air. Compared to fossil-fueled vehicles, EVs release fewer net emissions of nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds. Driving an EV can help urban areas meet federal air quality standards for ground-level ozone, the principal component of smog.
  10. EVs make gas stations a thing of the past. By buying an EV instead of a gasoline-powered car, you can take real action on climate change and lead by example. Over its lifetime (from cradle to grave), an EV today causes 54 percent less carbon pollution than a comparable gas vehicle. And that number is only going to get better as our electricity grid sources more of its power from wind and solar.
