Electricity is cheaper and has less volatile pricing than gas
Electricity is less expensive than gasoline and EVs are more efficient than gasoline vehicles. Electricity prices are also generally much more stable than gasoline prices. On a national average, it costs less than half as much to travel the same distance in an EV than a conventional vehicle. In addition, some utilities offer even cheaper rates at night, which can further reduce your electricity costs. Find out if your utility offers special incentives for EV drivers.
on average, EVs produce ~1/2 the emissions of gas cars
Scientists wanted to know exactly how many emissions conventional cars were responsible for and how many emissions electric cars were responsible for. Their conclusion? “We found that battery electric cars generate half the emissions of the average comparable gasoline car, even when pollution from battery manufacturing is accounted for.”
