EV Information

Electric vehicles (EVs) are fun to drive, cheaper and easier to maintain than gas-powered vehicles, and contribute fewer emissions into the air. With tax incentives available and a fast-growing network of charging stations, find out if owning an EV is the right choice for you.

Which EV is Right for Me?

BATTERY ELECTRIC

Fully electric cars offer the smallest environmental footprint and the biggest savings on maintenance and fuel.

PLUG-IN HYBRID

Plug-in hybrids have a rechargable electric motor and a gas-powered engine to extend range if needed.

TRADITIONAL HYBRID

Powered by an electric motor and gas-powered engine, Hybrids recharge as you drive. Tax credits and other benefits may not apply.

CHARGING MADE EASY

Charging is so simple, it will fit seamlessly into your routine. Electric vehicles offer great options for charging - all of them as simple as plugging in your smartphone.

Understanding Charging

Charging times vary depending of the type of charger used.

Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.

Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible.

Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.

Recharges When You Do

While some days you might spend hours on the road, commuting to work or running errands, often the vehicles we drive are simply parked. And that's a lot of free time to recharge. Whether you use at-home or public charging stations, simply plug in and let it power up while you power down.

For plugin hybrid vehicles a standard outlet (Level 1) will be enough for overnight charging. For battery electric vehicles, a Level 2 charger will require professional installation by a licensed electrician. If you live in an apartment or condo, consider talking with the property owner about installing a charger or use a nearby public charger. Talk to our sales staff to find out more about charging from home.

Advantage: Battery Power

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number will continue to increase. If you can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged most days and avoid extremely hot temperatures, you can expect your maintenance to be minimal.

Electric batteries can be repurposed toward the end of their life cycle, while gasoline is a finite resource. EVs also use regenerative braking, which results in increased brake pad life and fewer brake pad and rotor replacements during the lifecycle of the vehicle.

    Common Questions

    A federal tax rebate of $7,500 is available on most EV models. Depending on where you live, state and local rebates and incentives may also be available. Check with your sales associate to find out if the model is eligible for rebates and incentives. Click Here to learn more about EV Tax Credits.

    Other advantages of owning an EV include:

    • Eligible EVs may also qualify for HOV lane access, which are normally restricted to vehicles with multiple passengers.
    • Many electric companies offer lower rates based on the time of use. With EVs, you can save money by charging during off-peak times.
    • If you're able to charge from work or home, there's usually no need to stop to refuel like you would in a gas-powered vehicle.
    • EVs produce zero tail-pipe emissions resulting in cleaner air and better health.

    This will vary depending on the local price of electricity and gas and where you are charging (at home or public charger), but most EV owners can expect to save on fuel cost. A recent Consumer Reports study found the “typical EV owner who does most of their fueling at home can expect to save an average of $800 to $1,000 a year on fueling costs over an equivalent gasoline-powered car.”

    A recent Consumer Reports study found “maintenance and repair costs for EVs are significantly lower over the life of the vehicle – about half – than for gasoline–powered vehicles, which require regular fluid changes and are more mechanically complex. The average dollar savings over the lifetime of the vehicle is about $4,600.”

    Gas powered vehicles offer a range of 300-400mi. Battery electric vehicles offer a median range of 250mi. For EV owners who charge at home, this is more than enough for daily use. For longer drives beyond the range of your vehicle, check a public charger map for charger availability along your route.

    Yes, Level 1 and Level 2 chargers can be used at home. In fact, the standard 120V outlet supports a Level 1 charger. Level 2 chargers require 240V and can be installed by a licensed electrician. If you do not own your home, you may need to work with your property owner to install a Level 2 charger.
