Electric vehicles are affordable.

For real. With no belts and spark plugs, oil and exhaust, maintenance is a breeze. Plus, charging costs approximately 75% LESS than fueling up with gas. Electric vehicles make financial sense.

Electric vehicles are for everyone.

Not just luxury cars; there are affordable electric vehicles too. Not just for city drivers; rural communities have charging stations, too. Not just for running errands close to home; take a road trip.

Electric vehicles are easy.

Charge up at home, while you’re sleeping. Charge up at the grocery store, while you’re shopping. Preheat the car on a cold day without harmful and expensive idling. The electric life is the simple life.
