Electric vehicles are the right choice to save fuel costs and energy consumption. The range is the biggest consideration that consumers use before buying an electric vehicle. The main consideration is that consumers do not want to mess up by running out of energy when traveling a certain distance.
But if a low operating cost factor and carbon footprint is the main factor, consumers need to pay more attention to efficiency rather than the range.
The simplest way for consumers to see the efficiency of electric vehicles is to look at the EPA's combined miles-per-gallon-equivalent (mpge) rating. In addition, what needs to be seen is the estimated cost of the EPA annual fuel.
