Why Electric?

If you’ve been to the gas pump anytime recently you’ll be very aware that the price of fuel is not anywhere near as cheap as it used to be. Gone are the days when you could cruise around for hours after dumping only $10 in the tank. Some studies show that the cost of electricity used to run electric cars can be well under half of the gasoline cost of a traditional vehicle. Electric vehicles also have very low maintenance costs compared to a standard fuel powered vehicle. The 2015 BMW i3, for example, averaged around just $550 USD for annual running costs, compared to an average of $2,200 USD for a gas powered car.
