When you drive electric, you're also driving easier, cleaner, and more affordably. Plus, you fuel up for less and charge in the comfort of your own garage.
Electric cars can charge up while you sleep, or while you shop, play or work, and you’ll save time by not stopping at gas stations.
Why not treat your car like you do your smart phone? Plug in when you get home, schedule it to charge overnight, and wake up at 100%. If only it could brew your coffee.
Charging isn't just for homes—with the Clean Charge Network, there are public chargers at grocery stores, restaurants, parks, and maybe even at your place of work. Being able to charge up while doing your shopping? Now that’s a time saver!
Let’s be honest...you were already running behind, so give yourself one less thing to do during your commute. You can still secretly stop to grab a soda and snack if you want, we won’t tell.
Electric cars’ energy sources keep getting cleaner and have no tailpipe emissions, so we can all breathe a little easier.
All-electric vehicles produce zero direct emissions, which includes smog-forming pollutants and greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, so driving an EV can be one small step to fight climate change.
Evergy has a plan to work towards an 85% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2035 by making significant investments in renewable energy, including the addition of 660 megawatts of wind to our generation portfolio. And did you know that every public charging station is powered by renewable energy credits?
If you have ever walked behind a car that is bellowing exhaust or been stuck in a crowded parking garage, you understand that air quality has a direct impact on the air we are breathing. By driving an EV, you can breathe easier with no exhaust emissions.
Electric cars are cheaper to fuel up, easier to maintain, and they run more efficiently.
FUEL UP FOR LESS.
Ready to reduce your gas budget? You’ll find that you can dramatically cut your fuel costs by driving an EV, with electricity costing a fraction of what gasoline would to travel an equal distance.
Costs Less to Maintain.
Hate getting your oil changed? Then you’ll love an EV. With fewer moving parts, there’s less to maintain. No more oil, spark plugs, starters, fuel injectors, transmissions or radiators. Yes, you still have to rotate the tires and fill the windshield wiper fluid.
Big Tax Incentives.
Electric cars are available in a variety of sizes, capabilities, and ranges, and at affordable prices.
Electric vehicles aren't just for the wealthy, with models at a variety of price points. And when you consider that EVs are cheaper to fuel and maintain, you might find one to be more affordable than its gas equivalent.
Most new all-electric vehicles average 250+ miles of range in a single battery charge, and that range is increasing every year. There are also plug-in hybrid electric vehicles that can drive either on electricity only or in gas-hybrid mode.
Whether you want something small and spunky, a grocery hauler, a work truck with towing power, or a family SUV, there are new EV models arriving all the time in many sizes and capabilities.
Many electric cars can be driven with one pedal, pre-heated without leaving your garage, or maybe even drive themselves!
Driving without touching the brake pedal? When a driver lifts off the accelerator, many EV models have regenerative braking systems that can turn their own kenetic energy into electricity, feeding the battery and effectively slowing the car to a stop.
It’s a cold winter morning, and you want your car to be all toasty when you get in. EVs don’t need to “start their engine” to do this, so you can start warming them up from your phone (or smart speaker), without worrying about filling your garage with exhaust.
While a world with autonomous cars is not quite reality yet, many EVs have varying degrees of semi-self driver assistance technology. Autonomy in EVS helps bring efficiency in driving and battery use.
Electric cars have an extra smooth ride, no engine noise, and enough torque to make the on-ramp your launch pad.
Thanks to “instant torque”, EVs can produce immediate acceleration from a stop. The greater the torque, the faster you get from 0–60, meaning you’ll have no problem blasting onto the highway.
With no gear shifts or engine vibration to rattle you about, an EV will give you a much smoother, calmer ride than you ever dreamed of.
Because an electric car has no combustion engine or transmission, there are less moving parts and virtually no noise. In other words, you can finally listen to your podcast in peace on the drive home.
Electric cars are better for the power grid, avoid unpredictable gas prices, and reduce noise pollution.
Did you know that sounds above 65 decibels can trigger stress hormones and that sounds louder than 85 decibels pose a risk of permanent hearing loss? Not only are EVs a nice quiet ride, they can improve quality of life for ourselves and our neighbors.
EVs can benefit the power grid because they help utilities manage demand and maintain the stability of the grid by incentivizing charging at under-utilized times. To learn how you can save money and benefit the grid, check out Evergy’s Time of Use Plan.
If you dislike not knowing how much your next tank of gas is going to cost, you’re in good company. While gasoline prices can rapidly due to supply disruptions elsewhere in the world or even just seasonal demand, electricity rates are much more stable.
