A new consumer tool called Evolution is here to help making buying your next or first smart vehicle easy. The tool helps compare vehicle costs, savings, electric and fuel costs in your area along with charging station availability to show you electric vehicles that fit your specific needs best. The easy six step process is free and pulls data from the Alternative Fuels Data Center, FuelEconomy.gov and the US Energy Information Administration to pull the most current and quality data available.
- The tool, know as Evolution, was created with the intent to aide buyers in making the correct decisions when it comes to car buying.
- The tool helps buyers compare electric-drive technologies and how they effect the environment.
- A map is provided to determine the abilities of public chargers, with location and model.
“The climate where you reside, based on the entered zip code, and your commute time help the tool factor how often you need to charge each type of plug-in electric vehicle.”
