Benefits of owning an electric vehicle...
  • Driver satisfaction - Quick acceleration and a quiet drive.
  • Save time and money - The cost of using electricity to power your car is less than the cost of gas. So skip all those trips to the gas station and pocket the savings. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it costs about half as much to drive an electric vehicle as a conventional gasoline vehicle.
  • Reduced Maintenance - Electric vehicles have simpler engines, requiring fewer annual repairs compared to cars with internal combustion engines and BEVs require no oil changes.
  • Cleaner - Fewer emissions and pollutants from your drive. A typical gasoline vehicle emits more than five tons of carbon dioxide per year. That's more than four times as much carbon emissions as an electric vehicle using power from the New England grid.*
  • Energy independence - Reduce fuel dependence and exposure to fossil fuel price volatility.
