Compared to traditional vehicles with internal combustion engines (ICE), Electric vehicles create less environmental pollutants, are cheaper to operate, more efficient, quieter, require less maintenance, and consume less precious natural resources. The good news is that automobile manufacturers are slowly realizing these benefits of EVs due to customer demand for alternative fuel vehicles. However, many of the EAA members have become frustrated after auto manufacturer’s earlier EV false starts and their continued reluctance to introducing EVs. Out of this frustration, many members have converted their gas burning ICE cars over to full EVs.
