But we do have to start driving electric.

How can we change this?
What's wrong here?
Vehicles account for the 2nd largest amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
These emissions have led to:
Global Climate Change
Do you know anything about EVs?
Should we stop driving?
The solution is here:
Well, we are here to help you.
There are 3 main types of EVs:
Powered mainly by gas but use electricity stored in a battery for idling and acceleration
Powered by electricity from the power grid but use gas for extended range
Powered completely by electricity from the power grid
How do you charge an EV?
A hybrid battery is charged by the car's internal combustion engine and the heat generated by braking.
Plug-in EVs can be charged in many different ways...
Typical household outlet
2-5 miles/hour charging
Most common at public stations
Can be installed in homes
10-20 miles/hour charging
DC Fast Charging
Expected to be on highways soon
Least common now
60-80 miles/half-hour charging
No plug needed!
Charges at Level 2
Only available with certain models
There are many EV models available now:
and many more!
So now that you have an electric vehicle, where can you charge it?
Many people charge their EVs at home overnight.
Others use public charging stations.
These can be found at offices, businesses, restaurants, parking garages, and many other places.
There are over 6,000 electric charging stations in the US!
These charging stations are provided by numerous networks that operate nationwide.
But wait- there's more!
EVs have incredible fuel economy!
To drive 100 miles in Maryland:
That's 72% savings!
EVs can qualify you for federal and state tax credits!
$7,500 at the federal level
$2,000 tax credit
HOV Lane exemption
Up to $400 for EV supply equipment
Oil is foreign.
Electricity is domestic.
EVs could reduce our dependence on foreign energy supplies.
EVs are quiet and accelerate extremely quickly.
Because they have fewer moving parts, they require less maintenance than conventional cars.
EVs meet every Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.
EVs emit far less greenhouse gases than conventional vehicles.
If they are charged using electricity produced from renewable energy sources, they can become completely zero-emission!
Our bright future is right here.
We don't have to stop driving.
To make matters worse,
oil supplies are dwindling and prices are going up by the day.
Not only can every person benefit from driving an EV, but also can the environment.
