need to know information


A common concern when comparing EVs and Plug-in hybrids to conventional gas vehicles is range. The typical gas-powered vehicle has on average 300 miles per tank. This is positive news for the world of electric vehicles as most can expect to float around the 200-300 mile range per charge. To put that in perspective a trip from Raleigh to Asheville should be easily achieved as a trip would run 250 miles, putting to rest the theory that gas-powered vehicles have the advantage when it comes to range. Over the next 5 years, we can expect the range of EVs and Plug-in hybrids to improve at a rapid rate.


Think about the last time you saw a gas pump in your neighbor’s garage. An advantage of owning an EV or Plug-in hybrid is the ability to charge your vehicle from the comfort of your own home. Do not worry if that isn’t an option there are more than almost 113,600 charging outlets in the US with North Carolina accounting for 2,554 of them. These numbers will only increase in years to come. Charging electric vehicles takes between 30 minutes to 12 hours for a full charge and it varies between vehicle and charger models.
