Transportation is now the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the US. So driving green increasingly means driving electric. The good news is that the automobile industry is increasingly moving to electric vehicles as the future of transportation. Each model year brings more options for “greener” driving, including hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and all-electric vehicles.

EVs are powerful, fun to drive and cost less to own and run than gas-powered vehicles. And electric vehicles aren’t just better for the environment. Here in the northeast, transportation emissions are responsible for 40% of our air pollution – so moving to EVs is better for our health.

We have resources to learn about EVs and vehicle electrification more widely – as corporate and municipal fleets, delivery trucks and more go electric.
