Why Drive an EV?

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are rising in popularity each year and are set to become the future of transportation. As their name suggests, electric vehicles are powered by electricity through one or more electric motors and batteries that can be recharged. These eco-friendly vehicles can reduce costs and make a positive impact on the environment while not sacrificing on performance.

Buy Your EV

There are two types of EVs available for purchase. EVs are classified by the degree that electricity is used as their energy source—either fully electric or hybrid. Each type offers different features to accommodate your travel needs.

Fully Electric (EVs):

  • Run exclusively on electricity.
  • Have a travel range of 75 to over 300 miles depending on model.
  • Zero tailpipe emissions.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs):

  • Run on electricity and switch to a gasoline backup once the battery charge is depleted.
  • Lower tailpipe emissions than conventional gas-only vehicles.

Charge your EV

There are two convenient ways to charge your EV, at home and at public EV charging stations.

Home Charging

Level 1 Charging

Level 1 Charging

Uses the charge cord that came with your EV and plugs in to a 120-volt outlet. The Level 1 charge rate is approximately 5 miles of range per hour of charge – or roughly 60 miles of recharge each night.

Level 2 Charging

Requires installation of a charging station connected to a 240-volt outlet. Charging at Level 2 can add roughly 10 to 30 miles of range per hour, depending on the vehicle.

Level 2 Charging

Public Charging

There are over 100 public charging stations in El Paso Electric’s service territory. Public stations can be Level 2 or Level 3. Level 3 or “DC fast charging” can recharge up to 80% of your battery in 20 minutes.
