There's nothing new required in your garage. It's as simple as plugging your vehicle in to charge in the outlet that is already there. Or upgrade to a faster charger that uses the same amount of power as your washer and dryer. Not at home? Locate a charging station on the go with our interactive map.
Depending on the electric vehicle you buy, charging will cost between $0.03 and $0.06 per mile. This is between 1/4 and 1/3 the cost of gas. To see which EV is right for you, crunch the numbers here.
