Electric cars are awesome. I know. I drive a Tesla. https://www.tesla.com My costs in NYC come to roughly $8-10 per 300+ miles for charging my vehicle and they even have a converter with which, were I ever in a pinch, I could just plug MY CAR into a regular old outlet. Heck, yeah! If you’re lucky enough to have a house, you can install Tesla’s solar panel (see “Solar and Powerwall” on their website link above) and charge both your home and car for free, courtesy of our friend the sun.
There are a gajillion electric and hybrid car choices. Many states offer you tax incentives and other $$ help if you go green, so ask the car dealership for information on this when you go car shopping. There’s also an awesome free app called Plug Share that will locate chargers nearby for you. Why be a dinosaur? Join me in the future with fast, gas-free cars that are safe, environmentally friendly and, best of all, so freakin’ fun to drive. If you live near a Tesla dealership, go and test drive a car even if you’re not in the market to buy. If you like to drive and you like fast cars, you are going to have fun.
Regardless of awesome cars, consider walking or biking whenever you can because it’s good exercise as well as good for the planet. Use ride shares and/or public transit to cut down on air pollution. In other words, just be sensible.
