Electric Vehicles Offer Outstanding Performance
Driving a plug-in electric car is exciting – offering instantaneous torque and quiet acceleration. Electric vehicles also are fun and practical, and they are not just for the rich and famous. They are ideal for the common commuter. EVs also are highly efficient with benefits like regenerative braking, and many have smart features, such as connectivity.

Interest in EVs Keeps Growing
The buzz about electric vehicles continues as the general public learns more and sees their friends, relatives and coworkers shifting to driving electric.

There are now more than two dozen EV models available in the Midwest, and a fun fact is that more than 70 percent of these models are available in all wheel drive. 

Unfortunately, many manufacturers provide so few units to Midwest dealers that many of these vehicles are really hard to find. At the same time, battery technology has advanced quite a bit in recent years, providing a minimum of 150 miles of EPA driving range for EVs and making them more affordable.

We are expecting auto manufacturers to launch more than 100 new EV models to the U.S. market between 2020 and 2023. By 2023, we expect to have more than 40 electric crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks in the U.S. market.

EVs Offer the Best Efficiency Possible
Each year, the U.S. Department of Energy compiles a list of the Top 10 Fuel Sippers on the market with vehicles ranked by their EPA combined city/highway rating. For 2019 Model Years, all cars on list are electric drive vehicles. All-Electric vehicle (EV) fuel economy is given in Miles Per Gallon equivalent (MPGe), where 33.7 kWh = 1 gallon of gasoline. Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) are ranked by their combined gas/electricity rating.

See for Yourself
There’s no better way to get to know a car than getting behind the wheel. Here are some ideas on how you can experience electric drive performance first-hand:

    • Get Behind the Wheel: Driving a plug-in car is exciting – offering instantaneous torque and quiet acceleration. EVs are highly efficient with benefits like regenerative braking, and many have smart features, such as connectivity. Go to Midwest EVOLVE’s Events and Test Drives page to learn about upcoming test-drive events in your area or participating dealers.
    • Reserve an EV: Don’t own a car? Reserve a Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) the next time you rent or use a car-sharing service. No special training necessary! Check out where there is an EV available near you.
    • Request an Event in Your Area: Would your business or event wish to host a ride and drive on site? Click here to request Midwest EVOVLE host an event with you.
