The launch of EPE’s EV Online Shopping Tool is the newest piece to the Utility’s overall continued efforts to bring progressive, innovative technologies, resources, and services to the Paso del Norte region. The English-Spanish online platform will be the first of its kind offered in the southwest region. While this new tool is set to offer EPE customers greater optionality when it comes to personal transportation needs, this will also serve to help achieve the Utility’s environmental and sustainability goals.

“Transportation and its impact on our society is powerful, which is why we are devoting resources to take full advantage of this opportunity to offer our customers cleaner, affordable options while improving the quality of life for the community we serve,” says EPE Vice President of Sustainability and Energy Solutions Jessica Christianson.

EPE’s EV Online Shopping Tool will provide customers with comprehensive resources to support and enhance their current EV ownership, and to help first-time EV buyers get behind the wheel of a new EV with minimal cost and maximum confidence. The online tool is located on the region’s first EV-dedicated website, completely devoted to all things EV including charging infrastructure, which was recently updated with more resources and bilingual educational videos.

“Our EV Online Shopping Tool will help educate customers on the benefits of EVs while immediately connecting them to the vehicle that meets their needs. This tool will enable customers to discover available EV models, compare vehicles to each other and learn about available incentives” states EPE Supervisor of Electrification Angie Rodriguez.

EPE’s selected partner to launch the online tool, ZappyRide shares: We are proud to partner with El Paso Electric, who are trying to make the transition to electric vehicles easier for customers.
