  Cost to  drive an EV 100 miles:  $2.50

50 mpg Prius: $5.50

25 mpg car: $11.00

(based on electricity cost of $0.10 per Kwh, 4 miles per Kwh average EV efficiency  and gasoline cost of $2.25 per gallon)​​
Pure EVs (BEVs) require no oil changes and less maintenance.

Performance (pick up, handling etc.) of electric cars is better than their gas counterparts.

After a long EV life, batteries can be reused in other applications such as energy and wind storage.


EV's - The Future of Personal Transportation
In the last few years Electric Vehicles have become more prevalent on the roads.  The Blue Ridge EV Club is part of that movement to make EV's mainstream, where the question will become not "why do you drive an electric car", but "why do you still drive a gas car?"
