Plug In America |

Why would I want to plug a car in?

Three words: Cheaper. Cleaner. Domestic.

Cheaper: Electricity is much cheaper than gasoline (about a third of the current cost of
gas) and electric cars require next to no maintenance. (No oil changes, no muffler, no catalytic converter, etc. etc.)

Cleaner: Even on today's mainly coal-fired electrical grid, driving on electricity is cleaner than driving on gasoline. Read more in our FAQ asking, "What about overall emissions, including the car and the power plant?" Plus, plug-in vehicles give you the option of driving on renewable electricity sources such as solar, wind, or geothermal energy. Driving on electricity produces less of the pollution that sickens and kills hundreds of thousands of Americans each year.

Domestic: Electricity is made in the U.S.A. By driving an EV, you don't have to give your money to oil companies,
the politicians they support, and the foreign tyrants who control the oil supply.

Bonus: Plug-in cars are quiet, convenient, and fun to drive!
