Before You Buy

In this section, we will share information that drivers should keep in mind when considering the purchase of a plug-in vehicle. We start by explaining the electric drive portfolio of vehicles in EVs 101.  Then, we share a list of the plug-in and fuel cell vehicles available in the United States, including a link directly to the automaker's website, in the EV Showroom.  There are a number of incentives available for the purchase and operation of electric vehicles, administered by the federal government, state entitites, localities and utilities.  Keep an eye out for a list of FAQs, coming soon.
