Want to Buy an EV?

Great choice! Not only will you own a smarter, cleaner, higher-performing car that costs you less money to own and operate, you’ll be making a significant contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our community.

Ready to electrify your ride?

Between the savings at the pump to the ability to charge at home or on the go, going electric is a great choice. Plus you’ll be helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions!

What kind of EV will you get?

When it comes to EVs, you have options. Hybrid? Plug-in Hybrid? All Electric? Here’s the deal. Need more information? Visit our friends at Forth. PGE

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)

These run like an EV and use battery power for the first several miles but then switch over to gas power to extend the range when the battery charge is depleted. The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is an example of a plug-in hybrid car.

All-Electric (BEV)

All-electric cars don’t use any gas, ever. The Volkswagen ID.4 is an example of an all-electric car. Just plug it in for a few hours at home or at one of the handy charging stations around town, and you’re good!

Clean and green

It’s easy to do your part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions when you drive an electric vehicle. Here in Oregon, gas engines account for 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. EVs? Virtually zero tailpipe emissions. And you can make your electricity mix 100% carbon free with our Green Future renewable power program.

Save at the pump

With electric vehicles, there's no gas to burn or gas to buy. And maintenance, what maintenance? Simply charge your EV overnight or use any one of the numerous public charging stations and you'll be set to go. EVs are easy!

Go the distance

Let's get real. Older electric vehicles did have one shortcoming: range. But that was a loooong time ago. Today, the average EV can travel 275 miles on a charge, and some models can go a bladder-stretching 450 miles before you have to re-charge. Compare how far different cars can go on a single charge with our EV Costs & Savings Calculator.

Let’s talk charging

Either at home or on the go, charging an EV is simple, easy and with more and more charging places popping up, it's one less thing to worry about.

Charging at home

Most EVs come with a charger that uses a standard wall outlet. Just leave your car plugged in overnight and you'll be set to go. But if you upgrade to a Level 2 charger, you can reduce charging times substantially.  Learn more about charging options.

Charging on the go

Need to charge away from home? No garage to charge your EV? Relax, we’ve got you covered. Recharge at one of our Electric Avenue locations or download the Chargeway app that helps you find EV charging stations wherever you are. Learn more here.
