Why Own An EV?

Affordable to run

  • The average driver will save between $4,000 – $5,000 in fuel costs over the course of five years.
  • EVs have lower maintenance costs since you can avoid oil changes, cooling system flushes, transmission servicing, air filter changes, spark plugs, drive belts, and more!
  • Tax incentives can reduce the purchase price.

Range & Accessibility

  • Depending on the model, many EVs can go over 200 or even 300 miles on a single charge.
  • There are over 21,000 public charging stations in the U.S.


  • EVs are structurally sound and often at the top of their class in terms of crash and safety ratings.
  • Provide a smoother, more quiet ride.

Power your EV with 100% wind energy, for the lifetime of that vehicle, at no extra cost!

When renewable energy is added to the power grid, a renewable energy credit (REC) is created that embodies all of the environmental benefits of that energy. When you claim your Revolt upgrade, we’ll dedicate wind energy RECs on your behalf, completely offsetting the energy used to power your vehicle.
