Should I drive electric?
Yes. And save money doing it.
There are so many reasons why you should make the switch to electric. There is the obvious green aspect, helping reduce harmful carbon emissions and improve air quality (especially in dense urban areas). There is also a 'cool factor' with vehicles like Teslas and the BMW i8. However, the real benefit of converting to electric for the everyday driver isn't either of these. Rather, it is the reduced cost of commuting and driving.
With a variety of grants and subsidies for driving electric, both at the state and national level, along with the steadily reducing cost and increasing range of electric vehicles, the cost of driving an electric vehicle is substantially less than that of its gas counterpart.
