Fossil fuel-driven cars and trucks account for more than 50% of Greenhouse Gas emissions. We need to reduce CO2 pollution and ultimately eliminate it to secure a safer, cleaner planet for ourselves and for our children. In Virginia, electric vehicles using the grid cause less than half the CO2 pollution of gas-powered cars. As electricity generation migrates to non-carbon energy sources, the EV’s indirect CO2 emissions will decrease significantly, eventually getting to carbon-free. Also, it is important that electric vehicles are fun to drive! Typically EVs cost less to power than gas cars, the maintenance costs are lower, and there is a federal tax credit for vehicles and chargers, making the total cost of ownership of many models favorable to gas engine cars.
Note: Cars listed for show are for demonstration and talking to the owner. Cars listed to share are available for test rides or drives.
