Electric Cars are Good for……Your Wallet!– Our Electric Vehicles will fully charge from empty to full using about two dollars worth of electricity. Just $0.70 of electricity is needed to recharge after an average day of driving.
The World is Ready – Electric cars are viable today. Unlike many other alternative fuels, electricity is already being delivered directly to your home. There is no need to make fundamental and expensive changes to our nation’s energy infrastructure. The electric vehicles from Duke’s Garage require no special charge stations, and instead use the standard electrical outlets already in your home. Furthermore, electric cars charge up primarily at night, when electricity demand lowest, and below the maximum production capacity. No additional power plants required.
Electric Cars Really are Green – Electric cars produce zero tailpipe emissions, but we know that electricity has to come from somewhere. Of course electric cars can run off electricity generated from renewable sources such as of wind, solar and hydroelectric power. Even when running on electricity generated from coal, electric cars provide a total generation-to-usage efficiency roughly double that of gasoline cars. This efficiency results in lower fossil fuel consumption and less carbon emission.
Electric Cars Have a Future – With electric vehicle on the road, and power lines delivering electricity to your home, power plants can be upgraded to renewable alternatives over time, leading to more sustainable energy future.
Electric Vehicles Open the Door to a more renewable energy future. The most efficient sources of renewable energy produce electricity, not liquid fuels. Electric cars help shift the demand from liquid fuels to electricity, and in doing so, help our society switch its energy generation to more renewable sources.
Worried About Range? – The average person drives 32.7 miles per day. With Dukes Garage vehicles going 75-110 milers per charge, there’s no need to worry. Still need to drive more in a day? Consider asking your employer to install an electrical outlet near your parking space. Since our electric cars don’t require special charging stations, installing an electrical outlet is a simple and cheap way for your company to support smart transportation. All of our vehicles can completely charge in less time than an eight hour work day.
Efficiency is The Key – Only 13% of the energy stored in a gallon of gasoline makes it all the way to the wheels in a typical gasoline car. The rest of that energy is lost in the process. In typical electric car, more than 52% of the energy used in charging the car goes to the wheels. This technology powers you to where you need to go with far less energy.
