ELECTRIC VEHICLE REVOLUTION:
How To Be A Part of The Exciting & Needed Shift That’s Underway!
With Joel Levin, Executive Director
LISTEN HERE: Joining The Exciting EV Revolution with Joel Levin of PlugInAmerica.org
There’s a technological revolution underway that will soon make the widespread use of the internal combustion engine a thing of the past. Electric vehicles (EVs) are not only an essential part of the urgent global effort to reduce deadly vehicle pollution and stabilize our changing climate, but they are fun to drive, much easier to maintain, and will save you a whole lot of money on fuel for many years to come.
With the demand for electric vehicles growing fast, and some automakers now pledging to go all-electric in coming years, consumers need practical, objective information to help them select the best plug-in vehicle for their lifestyles and needs. Fortunately, there are now tools to help us navigate the purchase of our next electric car!
Join HealthyPlanet’s Bob DiBenedetto for an interview with Joel Levin, a leading advocate for electric vehicles, clean energy, and effective climate policies and executive director of Plug In America. They will be outlining some powerful resources now available that will make choosing the right EV a breeze! They’ll also discuss some of the global issues that make the move to electric vehicles a wise and vital choice for our world and society.
Tune in to find out the best way to become one of the 94% of EV drivers who intend on making their next car electric!
Listen To Hear:
• how to use the simple and powerful PlugStar shopping assistant to help you navigate what can otherwise be a complicated series of decisions about rebates, incentives, tax credits, range, price, charging, features, etc.
• how to find a car dealer who has been trained to help you navigate the purchase of the best electric vehicle for your needs.
• why the perfect electric car for your friend or neighbor, might not be the best electric car for you.
• are used electric vehicles a good choice for you?
• how you can find local events that will let you drive electric vehicles so you can see what all the excitement is about.
• how maintaining an electric vehicle requires a small fraction of the time and money required by a gas-powered car.
… and much more!
