Why go electric?
Most EV drivers charge their vehicles at home, which means EVs never require a trip to the gas station and your hands will never smell like toxic petrochemicals. EVs have far fewer moving parts than gasoline cars. There’s no engine, transmission, spark plugs, valves, fuel tank, tailpipe, distributor, starter, clutch, muffler, or catalytic converter. There are a lot fewer things to break down, so there are no oil changes and maintenance costs are much lower.

If you have a fuse box or 160’s vintage panel we suggest you search for yourself and see the safety dangers created in your own home.
