Get to your adventure in an Electric Vehicle: Besides being the most fun you can have with your clothes still on (think instant acceleration and great cornering), EV's have significantly lower fuel costs. Your vehicular carbon footprint will be 1/3 to 1/2 that of a gasoline-powered "earthwarmer" over the life of the car- and even less as we move more toward renewable power generation. With 1/100th of the moving parts, the EV has lower maintenance costs and enjoys far fewer, and less expensive, dealer visits. Some EV’s have a projected life of 1 million miles! We provide insights on what cars have what range, financing to dampen the higher purchase expense, how to charge in 10 seconds at home, and how to refuel when on a long trip. Camp in that EV and enjoy climate control all night long and a full tank in the morning. Learn why “range anxiety” is a thing of the past, about charging times and convenience, carbon footprint of battery production & disposal, and safety will also be discussed. Learn how EV’s, while not having yet reached purchase price parity with earthwarmers, have achieved or exceeded cost parity and why the days of new Earthwarmer purchase are past.
