Electric Vehicles

EPA Green Vehicle Guide.

https://turo.com/ – A car sharing site modeled after Air BnB. You can select “electric” or “hybrid” under “Green Vehicles.” A great way to try out a particular model before you buy!

https://afdc.energy.gov/calc/ – Calculate the cost of ownership of different vehicles over time. Spoiler alert!!! EVs can be cost competitive with gas vehicles, and the calculator doesn’t even account for potential savings from on-site solar energy generation.

https://driveelectricus.com/ – The national Drive Electric organization. Lots of good info for those interested in electric and hybrid vehicles.
