Why Invest in EV Charging?
When you combine the fuel-efficiency of EVs and the cost of electricity relative to that of gasoline, driving an EV is typically three or more times cheaper than driving a gasoline-powered vehicle.
Lifetime maintenance and repair costs for EVs are about half, compared to gasoline-powered vehicles.
Electric vehicles (EVs) have no tailpipe emissions and typically have a smaller carbon footprint than gasoline cars, even when accounting for the electricity used for charging.
Gen Z considers employer-sponsored benefits that reward sustainable practices (like providing EV chargers) “extremely important” in their selection of where to work.
4 out of 5 EV owners consider charger availability when selecting a retail destination.
88% of EV owners consider charger availability when apartment/condo hunting.
Median all-electric vehicle driving range is currently 222.1 (highway) and 248.9 (city) according to the U.S. EPA. Many models exceed 300 miles per charge.
608,000 new EVs were sold in the U.S. in 2021.
Electrified vehicles accounted for 9.7% of all vehicle sales last year
