Which Electric Vehicle Is Right For Me?

Whether you're looking for a daily commuter, a second car, or something to take a road trip in, there's an Electric Vehicle that fits your needs, saves your money and lowers your carbon footprint.

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)

These vehicles are fully electric and are powered by a rechargeable battery rather than a gas engine. The battery can be charged using a standard wall outlet, or at a dedicated EV charging station.

Benefits of BEVs

By eliminating the gas-powered engine, BEVs do not produce tailpipe emissions and help reduce air pollution. On average, driving a BEV creates 3-times fewer carbon emissions than a gas-powered vehicle, and can be completely carbon-neutral if you get your electricity from a renewable source like solar or wind.

Popular BEVs

Popular BEV models include the Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model 3, and many newer models can comfortably exceed 200 miles of range. Plus, as we build up Connecticut's charging infrastructure with public charging stations, and offer rebates on home charging, you'll never be far from a charging station.

Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs)

PHEVs can switch between battery power and an internal combustion engine. This allows you to power your vehicle using electricity for short trips, and then run on gas or diesel fuel once the rechargeable battery has been depleted.

Benefits of PHEVs

Most PHEVs can travel 20-50 miles using only their rechargeable battery, making them ideal for carbon-neutral daily commuting, or for longer trips that require the internal combustion engine.

Popular PHEVs

Popular PHEV models include the Chevy Volt and Honda Clarity.

Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs)

HEVs have both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. HEVs use a process called regenerative breaking to charge the electric battery, and then use that energy to power the electric engine.

Benefits of HEVs

By using the combination of internal combustion and electric power, HEVs can deliver superior fuel economy and increase the distance between fuel stops without the need to charge an electric battery.

Popular HEVs

Popular HEV models include the Toyota Prius (standard model), and the Ford Fusion Hybrid.
