Electric Vehicles are on the Roads Today

Many people are not aware that Electric Vehicles are available today! They are more than just a future promise from automakers. Some EVs are production vehicles used as daily commuter cars while others are one-of-a-kind custom projects.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are practical, clean, quiet alternatives to noisy, pollution-spewing gasoline and diesel vehicles. Electric Vehicles keep our Earth cleaner and help preserve our natural resources. EVs are a smart and efficient choice for personal transportation.

Millions EVs on the road will not have a significant impact on the national electric grid since most of the charging will be done at night when the utility companies have excess capacity. Also, EVs don’t just shift pollution someplace else. Studies have shown that even when EVs are recharged from a typical power plant, they are still more efficient and far less polluting that a typical car power by an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). Finally, while there are high performance, high priced electric cars in the market, there are also many EVs that are affordable and can be used to meet about 90% of our driving needs.
