Drive your Climate Action.
Transport accounts for around one-fifth of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In some countries – often richer countries with populations that travel often – transport can be one of the largest segments of an individual's carbon footprint.
Based on an examination of FTA's data and other academic, government, and industry sources, driving EV's or switching to EV's can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by: Providing a low emissions alternative to driving.

EVs are good for the environment
From the way Evs are manufactured, operated and to the end of their time use EVs produce much less carbon emissions than any other gas operated vehicles.
The batteries of an EV do not need to be replaced. Many batteries in EVs are on warranty for about 8 years and are designed specifically to last the cars lifespan
EVs are the more energy efficient vehicles around. When stopped at a normal stop sign or traffic light the electric motors of EVs don’t consume energy. When braking EVs during these stops it actually recharges in deceleration mode.
EVs are Safe
Evs are mostly the same if not better than gas cars when it comes to safety. They obtain the same road safety tests, and share the same safety features as gas cars.
EVs offer smooth and light drive through traffic, they cruise right on through with delivery of instant torque for better acceleration than gas cars. EVs are great for city driving.
Did you know EV drivers have higher privileges than gas car drivers? When it comes to parking spots, EV drivers enjoy preferred parking spots, and also have access to HOV lanes while driving alone with the recognition of a green license plate.
EVs Save Money
Most people run away from EVs because they think they cost so much, when in reality they don’t! Most NEW EVs cost between $30,000 to $50,000 with the option of being leased or financed.
EVs can also save anywhere between $2000 to $5000 in fuel yearly - depending on the amount you drive. There are also many options for you to save on insurance through many insurance dealers and many great incentives - depending on where you live, all over North America.
One of the best things about EVs is that the maintenance on them is far less probable. Gas vehicles have more than 2000 parts built into them, where EVs have only around 200 parts or less - which means far less could go wrong with parts in the car.
EVs Save Time
Most EV Chargers which include level 1 and 2 chargers like Plugzio Chargers guarantee to charge up to 5-8x faster than your given charger with the purchase of your car.
EVs can be charged using a normal wall socket. Purchasing a charging station or adapter for your wall socket is much faster and can be cheaper within the consumption of normal utilities for your household. Best Chargers depend on where you will be charging your car.
There are many charging stations all over the world. Many charging stations can recharge a battery from 0-80% in less than 45 minutes.
