Electric vehicles (EVs) are clean, fun to drive, never require a stop at the gas station, and are a key part of California’s strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, the state’s biggest source of climate-altering pollution. Drive Clean and Save finds that mass-market battery electric vehicles are also a good deal and will likely save money for consumers compared to similar gasoline-powered vehicles.
