EV Model Comparison

When choosing a car, there are many factors to consider, including the cost of fuel and maintenance. As the demand for electric and hybrid vehicles increases, their cost decreases. In addition, customers of municipal electric utilities may see the added benefit of charging their vehicles at a lower average electric rate than many drivers across the Commonwealth. With rebates and incentives, including our incentives on smart chargers, vehicles and charging equipment are now more accessible to customers than ever before! The below chart compares the cost of five different vehicles ranging from electric to hybrid to traditional gasoline. Which one is right for your family?
