For car shoppers who are interested in trying out electric-vehicle technology, but don’t have Tesla money to spend, now is the perfect time to consider buying a Chevrolet electric vehicle for less than $20,000! A current glut of electric cars means that shoppers can find a wide range of EVs at great prices.

Why Should You Consider an EV?

Electric vehicles provide quiet and energy-efficient transportation. They also lower greenhouse-gas emissions and reduce our national dependence on gasoline. Plus, operating costs for electric vehicles are lower than their gasoline counterparts!

Are EVs safe?

You might be wondering how safe an electric vehicle is. Did you know that all electric vehicles undergo the same rigorous safety testing that conventional vehicles sold in the U.S. go through? They must meet the same Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, as well as Electric Vehicle standards.

Perfect For Teens

According to Jake Fisher at Consumer Reports, “Buying a recent model-year EV could be a cost-effective way to get a car with advanced safety features.” An EV may also be a great choice for a teenager commuting to high school, since they will definitely appreciate the big savings on gas on their short trips to school or work.

Get the Best of Both Worlds With a Plug-in Hybrid

A plug-in hybrid vehicle combines the advantages of an electric vehicle with the benefit of having more freedom to operate the vehicle just on gasoline. Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), have a large battery that allows the vehicle to drive on electricity alone.

For instance, a 2016 or newer Chevrolet Volt offers up to 53 electric miles with a full charge. The driving range of the Volt is extended dramatically to 420 miles when a full tank of gas is added to the mix. This gives you the peace of mind and freedom to drive as far as you want!
