Have you ever wondered what it’s like to drive an electric vehicle? Are you considering purchasing one and would like to take an extended test drive a little closer to home? Well, now’s your chance!
To help educate our members and bring awareness to our community about electric vehicles, Dixie Power has purchased two Hyundai Kona EV’s. Both cars can be loaned out by Dixie Power members for a week at a time, to drive free of charge and without mileage restrictions. The EV loaner program provides members the chance to see how an EV works as their daily vehicle, and think about whether planning an electric vehicle purchase in their future makes sense.
For some, EV adoption is about eliminating tailpipe emissions and contributing to cleaner air. For others, EVs are an attractive option due to state and federal tax rebates up to $12,500, as well as the cost savings on maintenance since EVs do not require oil changes and other routine maintenance visits. The retail cost of EVs has come down over the last 10 years, and all of those cost savings to purchase and maintain electric vehicles have led to over 500,000 EV purchases in the last 10 years, in the USA.
Whatever your reasons for considering an EV purchase, we invite you to take advantage of the EV test drive experience through Dixie Power and find out why EVs are the car of the future and why so many people enjoy driving them.
