It’s time to take a look. Electric vehicles (EVs) have become an incredibly viable option for more people. Today, you can buy an electric car in almost every vehicle class. More models, including crossovers, minivans, hatchbacks, and sedans are available and the used EV market is expanding.

Electric cars offer consumers affordable, efficient, safe, and high-tech transportation. Today, new-car buyers can choose from over 40 makes and models. By 2022, more than 90 electric vehicle options are projected.

Minnesota’s charging network is also becoming more robust, although most drivers just charge overnight in their garage due to convenience and savings. It’s nice to wake up to a full car every morning.

At the U.S. national average price of 12.5 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), electricity is roughly equivalent to gasoline at $1 a gallon. Plus, many electricity cooperatives offer special electric vehicle rates.

So, if you’re interested in saving money, doing your part for the environment and just having a fun car to drive – go test drive on today or click below for more information.

Cost-effective

Driving an electric vehicle costs much less than driving gasoline- or diesel-powered ones—and even less when you take advantage of the EV time-of-use rates. The cost of charging at a DC fast charger? Usually less than $5.

 

Convenient and fast charging

Most charging can be completed with the regular outlet in your garage at night. Just plug into the 120V Level 1 charging cordset that comes with the car. For road trips, public charging stations are becoming more readily available every day. Get a full charge in 20 to 30 minutes with DC fast chargers.

 

Cleaner Driving

Electric motors are 80 to 95% efficient, so they use significantly less energy than vehicles with a traditional drive train. Make it even cleaner by enrolling in our Revolt program. Electric cooperatives in MN were the first electric providers in the country to offer a groundbreaking program like Revolt, pairing renewable energy with EVs. Revolt is a ground breaking initiative to make EVs a thing of today. It means powering your electric vehicle with 100% wind energy at no extra cost. Energy comes from all kinds of sources; wind, natural gas, coal and so on. Once it hits the power grid, there’s no way of telling where it came from. However, when renewable energy is added to the mix, a renewable energy credit (REC) is created that embodies all of the environmental benefits of that energy. When you claim your Revolt upgrade, we’ll dedicate wind energy RECs on your behalf, completely offsetting the energy used to power your electric vehicle. We’re working hard to build a more sustainable EV future by offering you an opportunity to power your electric vehicle with 100% wind energy, for the lifetime of that vehicle, at no extra cost. You still have to pay for the energy you use, but you’ll be able to do so knowing that when you go electric, you’ll always be going green. Displacing gasoline with domestic electricity cuts petroleum use and emissions, which benefits public health. Electrifying the transportation sector can reduce greenhouse gas emissions in 2050 by 57% relative to 2015 levels.
