Before You Buy a PEV
There are many things to consider before buying or leasing a PEV. To make PEV ownership as simple as possible, think about the following before you buy:
Will you be buying an all-electric battery-powered vehicle or a plug-in hybrid?
Your driving habits will determine the type of vehicle that suits you best, and will also determine the type of electrical connection you'll need. Learn more about charging a PEV.
Are you equipped for home charging?
Yes. All PEVs can be charged with the charging unit that comes with your car, on a standard 120-volt 3-prong outlet. Learn more about charging a PEV.
