Have you considered driving an electric vehicle (EV), but haven’t made the switch yet? Whether you’re hosting holiday festivities at your house, or driving hundreds of miles to visit friends and family, EVs just might come up in conversation.
Maybe your discussions will be about things you can do to combat climate change. Maybe your cousin is on the waitlist for the new Ford Mustang Mach-E (available with over 300 miles of range!). Maybe you noticed new EV chargers at the rest area on the way to your parents’ house. Or maybe you just read an interesting piece in the latest issue of Bright Ideas that you’d like to share with your loved ones. In any case, here are a few helpful conversational tidbits you can bring to your holiday dinner.
Sister: “How was the drive?” You: “Smooth, quiet, didn’t have to hit the gas station before the trip … the usual. How was yours?”
Uncle: “Isn’t an electric car just a fancy golf cart?” You: “Does your golf cart go zero to sixty in under six seconds, have Bluetooth, a touchscreen, and over 200 miles of range?”
Grandson: “We should get a sports car. Something shiny and fast!” You: “Did you know that the fastest production car under $200k is the Tesla Model S, Plaid (396 Miles of range)? All-electric, of course. I saw a bunch of them on the way here.”
Mother: “What are you thankful for this year?” You (bowing head): “I’m thankful to live in a state that prioritizes the environment with great EV incentives and a focus on renewable energy.”
Brother: “Wow, gas prices went way up this year!” You: “Actually, I haven’t noticed. I charge my car at home, and my electric bill hasn’t changed much at all in recent years. My cost to charge is about the same as getting gas for a dollar a gallon!”
Grandmother: “This wine you brought is delicious!” You: “I’ve been spending less money lately with my new EV, so I thought I would upgrade the wine this year.” No matter the conversation, there’s always an opportunity to get excited about your EV. And if you haven’t made the switch yet, what are you waiting for? There are over $10,500 in federal, state and BELD incentives to help lower the cost to own even more!
