EVs are becoming more affordable thanks to federal tax incentives and a growing vehicle inventory.
It’s cheaper to charge the battery than to fill up the gas tank. With fewer tune-ups and no oil changes, vehicle maintenance costs less, too.
With an EV, you’ll save time by eliminating trips to the gas station.
When considering both direct and life-cycle emissions, EVs outperform conventional vehicles.
