An all-electric vehicle uses electricity as its primary fuel and a plug-in hybrid uses electricity along with a conventional engine to improve efficiency. There are numerous reasons why people choose to drive electric. The top include saving money on fuel and maintenance costs, the car’s driving performance, being environmentally friendly and supporting local energy sources. Most major car manufacturers are currently offering electric models and many other manufacturers are in the planning phase to produce an EV during the next few years.
EV owners have multiple options when it comes to charging their vehicle. Charging stations are often categorized into three levels: Level 1, Level 2 and DC Fast Charge. All vehicles come with an adapter to plug the car in at home to a standard 120- volt outlet, known as Level 1 charging. To locate a public charging station to use while running errands or traveling, there are multiple apps and websites that list station locations and provide details.
