The facts are in: driving an electric vehicle means you have more money in your pocket! If you drive a lot, you could have A LOT more money in your pocket. Don’t believe us? Consumer Reports just published their study EVs Offer Big Savings Over Traditional Gas-Powered Cars

Chris Harto, CR’s senior policy analyst for transportation and energy, noted “No matter how you look at it, the massive lifetime savings potential of EVs could be a game changer for consumers.”

If you rack up miles – for work or just driving around – an EV could help put thousands of dollars back in your pocket. Here’s where those savings really add up:

  • Gas Savings – In states like California where gas can cost more than $3 per gallon, high-mileage drivers save big by charging on low-cost electricity.
  • Maintenance Savings – No more oil changes! Also, regenerative braking means one-foot driving and few, if any brake jobs. With fewer moving parts, there’s just less to go wrong with an EV, meaning more time on the road.

A key consideration for going electric is where to charge it. Consumer Reports found that “92 percent of charging can be done at home” with a 200+ mile EV like the Chevrolet Bolt. If you’re thinking about going electric, Flux makes it easy by including an option for a no-money-down EV charger.
