#2 – Save on Fuel and Maintenance Costs
Drive where you want at a fraction of the cost.
Electric car charging in California costs roughly half the price of powering a standard gasoline car for driving the same distance. Most drivers charge their electric cars overnight at home and wake up to a full charge. With the growing availability of workplace and public charging stations, you will never be far from a charge. Check for public charging using apps or online maps. Most hydrogen fuel cell cars have a current added bonus of free fuel for three years offered by hydrogen automakers.

Electric motors have far fewer moving parts and never require oil changes, new spark plugs or fuel filters. Regenerative braking also extends the lifespan of brake pads by using the electric motor to decelerate the vehicle. This typically translates to lower overall maintenance costs and increased savings. Our electric car overview goes into depth on the various benefits for the different electric car types.
Many electric utilities offer special time-of-use rates that vary based on the time of day when energy is used. Off-peak rates offer much lower charging costs, and electric cars can be programmed to charge when you want. Pair these lower rates with the simplicity of electric car charging for great fuel savings. Read driver reviews to find out what current drivers love about their cars.
