EV Facts

  1. An all-electric vehicle (EV) is powered by electricity from the car’s battery. 
  2. EVs have no tailpipe emissions like traditional combustion engine vehicles.
  3. Hybrids (HEV) and plug-in EVs (PHEV) are environmentally friendly as they have the potential to emit less overall emissions than traditional combustion engine vehicles.
  4. EVs often require less maintenance because they have fewer moving parts relative to a combustion engine. 
  5. EVs rate high on crash and safety standards.
  6. EVs can be charged at home, or charging stations can be found across the U.S. Most EVs can go 200 miles or more before needing a recharge. 
  7. The majority of EVs accelerate to 60 mph in 4-8 seconds.
