Embracing electric vehicles is a crucial step in our collective efforts to combat climate change. By relying on clean electricity rather than fossil fuels like gasoline, electric vehicles emerge as powerful allies in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy highlights that EV Cars emit less than half the amount of c02 compared to gas-powered cars. With gas-powered vehicles contributing over 12,500lbs of CO2 annually, the choice to drive an electric vehicle slashes that number to less than 3,000lbs, making a remarkable impact on our planet's well-being. Not only do they champion sustainability, but they also boast a significant edge when it comes to lower maintenance costs.
