- An all-electric vehicle (EV) is powered by electricity from the car’s battery.
- EVs have no tailpipe emissions like traditional combustion engine vehicles.
- 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.
- EVs often require less maintenance because they have fewer moving parts relative to a combustion engine.
- EVs rate high on crash and safety standards.
- 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.
- The majority of EVs accelerate to 60 mph in 4-8 seconds.
