Take to the open road in an EV

We challenge three myths about electric vehicles and road trips.

Myth 1: Electric vehicles can’t travel far

Fact: Depending on the model, EVs can travel up to 70 to 200 miles on a single charge.

Myth 2: It’s hard to find places to charge your EV

Fact: It’s easy, thanks to the West Coast Electric Highway — a network of electric vehicle fast charging stations located every 25 to 50 miles along Interstate 5 and other major roadways in the Pacific Northwest.

Myth 3: Charging takes a long time

Fact: Fast charging stations provide a full charge in only 20 to 30 minutes. That gives you a break to stretch your legs, hit the restroom, or grab a coffee or quick bite. Both you and your EV will be refreshed and raring to go.

EV trip tips

Here are some things to keep in mind to make a road trip in in EV easier:

  • Plan your route in advance so you know when and where to charge up.
  • Use Plugshare.com or the Plugshare app to find the nearest charging station.
  • Remember that speed, use of climate control and hills affect your mileage.
