What are Zero Emission Vehicles? 

Zero Emission Vehicles (aka an electric car) is a battery operated electric vehicle powered by a large rechargeable battery instead of a gas engine.

This means instead of spending hundreds of dollars on gas each month, you can save BIG money by charging your car at home, work or a local charging station.  On top of this, you will also be helping the environment! 

And there is more.

Benefits: What’s in it for you?


  1. Convenience – No more filling up at the gas stations!
  2. Performance you can feel—experience the silent engine as it takes you to your destination.
  3. ZEVs incorporate the latest technology! Get the newest gadgets for your ride.
  4. ZEVs help the environment—it is emission free. No fumes!
  5. Savings – some users have reported spending as little as $50/month* to operate their ZEVs.
