Driving an electric vehicle has positive impacts on our environment and local economy. An EV is a lifestyle upgrade. Here's why:
Cheaper to Drive
Cheaper to Drive
The average annual cost to operate a typical gasoline vehicle is ~$1,100, while the annual cost of operating an EV is only ~$485, a savings of ~60%!
Additionally, all Battery EVs (BEVs) cost less to maintain, saving you about $145 to $215 a year.

An EV driver in Michigan reduces ~45-60% of emissions annually compared to a driver of a gas-powered vehicle – and ~10% more by 2030 - as DTE continues to phase out coal-fired power plants and transitions to natural gas and renewables.

The energy your EV uses is produced right here in Michigan and helps lower our nation's dependence on foreign fuel. That means more money and jobs pumped into our local economy.
