Not to mention the less time you spend at the pump, the more time you’ll have for adventures with the family.

EVs Include Cars, Transit Buses, Trucks, and More!

When Lincoln shoppers think of electric vehicles, they often think of small compact sedans or hatchbacks. That’s not always the case! You can find electric buses, FedEx, and heavy-duty zero-emissions trucks throughout Lincoln and beyond. In fact, EV trucks offer excellent economic savings as they’re cheaper to fuel and operate than diesel trucks. It’s a win-win!
 

You Can Charge Your Electric Vehicle Almost Anywhere

Fremont are often hesitant about buying an EV or hybrid because they don’t know where the closest charging stations are. There are more charging stations in the Lincoln area than you think, so you can charge your vehicle at work, the grocery store, the mall, or most major establishments. However, with the help of a professional, you can also convert your garage into an at-home charging station. How convenient is that?
 

What Should I Know Before Buying An Ev?

Now that we’ve gone over some of the most interesting EV facts, you may feel more confident that going electric is right for you. However, most people aren’t aware that there are actually five categories of electric vehicles to choose from. To answer your question “What should I know before buying an EV?” take a look below to see which type of EV fits your Blair lifestyle the best:
