No oil changes or replacing spark plugs and fuel filters, and EV regenerative breaking extends the brake pad lifespan. With many less moving parts, EVs are easier to maintain than vehicles with combustion engines.

Benefiting Michigan

The energy your EV uses is produced right here in Michigan. Also, EVs have zero tailpipe emissions. An EV driver in Michigan reduces up to 70% emissions annually compared to a driver of a gas-powered vehicle.
