Pittsburgh’s electric vehicle future is now.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are transforming the way we drive -- from personal cars to business fleets. And it’s clear why so many are making the switch from gas: superior performance, convenient charging, low fuel costs and reduced maintenance. Best of all, charging up in Pennsylvania results in just one third the emissions of a gas-powered car.

The EV Team is here to support everyone looking to join the future of driving, including:

  • Individual car owners seeking information and great deals on electric vehicles.
  • Property developers or managers or employers considering installing charging stations.
  • Organizations looking to upgrade their fleet to electric.

Go electric. Get paid.

Beyond the everyday savings from lower fuel and maintenance costs, there are many incentives available to lower the cost of buying an EV.

Charging stations

Charging stations everywhere.

More than 400 public charging station ports across the Pittsburgh region means better air quality -- and peace of mind knowing that a charge-up is just around the corner.
