See PRECO’s New EV Website
Electric vehicles (EV) are rapidly becoming a popular choice for new and used car buyers. Nearly every major vehicle manufacturer is offering electric options in 2020. Some models may not be available in all areas yet, but distribution continues to expand. To help you understand the key aspects of EV ownership, PRECO just added a suite of tools to our website.
Today’s electric vehicles typically come in two forms – all-electric vehicles (EVs), that run 100% on electricity, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), which run on electricity but also have a gas-powered engine for extended trips. On our new EV web pages, you’ll find a current directory of EV and PHEV models to help you review price, range-per-charge, efficiency, styles, available incentives, and public charging information. We’ve also included FAQs, information about the key benefits of EV ownership, and calculators that help you understand what kind of savings you can expect based on our local gas and electric rates.
Save money: in many cases, operating an electric vehicle costs considerably less than a gas-powered vehicle. Visit our website to see how much you might save if you switch your car to an EV.
Convenience: EVs can be charged at home; imagine never going to the gas station again. EVs that are all-electric do not require oil changes either!
Environmental: all-electric EVs have no tailpipe emissions! The fuel sources used to generate the electricity that goes into your EV may produce some emissions, but in most cases, EVs result in less CO2 emissions than gas-powered vehicles.
Performance: EVs have tremendous torque and acceleration. They typically have a very responsive feel, and owners report that they are fun to drive.
You’ll find a wide range of helpful EV information including:
