  • EV Benefits


    High Fuel Economy, Low Fuel Cost

    • Today's EVs (or PHEVs in electric mode) can exceed
      100 mpge (miles per gallon electric).
    • Estimate $1 per gallon when charging with electricity.

    Flexible Fueling

    • Most charging happens at your home every night.
    • Workplace and public charging are becoming more readily available.

    High Performance

    • Today's PEVs are state-of-the-art highway vehicles ready to match or surpass the performance of conventional gasoline and diesel vehicles.
    • PEVs are much quieter than conventional vehicles.
    • PEVs produce minimum torque and smooth acceleration from a full stop.

    Low Emissions

    • PEVs that are driven in all-electric mode produce ZERO direct emissions.
    • PHEVs running on gasoline do produce emissions, but because their operation is more efficient than gas or diesel, they yield direct emissions benefits even when relying on ICE mode.
