Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently announced the launch of the Drive Electric Chicago program, which will include a website that contains all the information you could possibly want to know about owning and maintaining an electric vehicle, not to mention rebates and incentives for driving an electric vehicle!
With pollution becoming an increasing problem these days, especially in a large city like Chicago, cutting down on emissions from gas-powered vehicles is a priority. “The City of Chicago is committed to an environment in which energy efficient vehicles are the norm, not the exception. Driving an electric vehicle is a smart choice, saving residents money, protecting our air quality, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Mayor Emanuel.
Not only is driving an electric vehicle better for the environment, but it also can save you a ton of money in the long run. The average resident of Chicago can save an average of 70% in fuel costs, not including the decrease in car maintenance bills. This doesn’t include the 33% fewer greenhouse gas emissions per year either, which can make a huge difference in the quality of our air.
