As EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi often remarks, “everyone I know who has driven an electric vehicle has fallen in love with driving an EV.”
Thanks to recent air quality improvements, more and more drivers are thinking about making the switch to an EV. If you’re thinking about owning or leasing an EV when COVID-19 shelter-in-place restrictions are lifted, we’ve compiled a list of 5 of our favorite reasons to go electric.
Which one is your favorite?
Bonus: In 2019, EVgo became the first public fast charging network in the U.S. to commit to powering our network with 100% renewable energy as part of our commitment to a clean energy economy.
One of the many benefits of electric vehicles is the fact that electricity is everywhere, and a lot of drivers will do a combination of charging at home, work, and on the go. To that end, each individual driver’s cost of fueling may vary widely based on what percent of their charging they do where. Our per-minute rates are easy to find online or in the EVgo app and anyone can fast charge at Pay as You Go Rates or sign up for a membership to access discounted per-minute rates.
Bonus: Some EVs qualify for a federal tax credit and some states offer additional credits. Click here for more info. For potential EV drivers in California, our partners at Veloz have compiled resources to help you find the right EV for you.
Bonus: EVs also offer more high-tech features than many traditional ICE vehicles, like virtual reality backseat entertainment and sophisticated safety sensors and cameras that connect to the vehicle’s braking and steering systems to help avoid collisions.
The good news is that once you’ve made the decision to go electric, you can enjoy peace of mind with EVgo.
To meet the charging needs of EV drivers today and tomorrow, EVgo has built more than 800 conveniently-located fast charging locations across 34 states, and we’re rapidly expanding our network. In fact, EVgo has already opened at over 20 new locations in 2020 – averaging more than one new station weekly, with dozens more in construction and in the pipeline. You can fast charge your EV with EVgo at grocery stores, shopping centers, convenience stores, parking garages, and even hotels.
We invite you to make the switch and join the EV revolution!
