Donna Coulombe, electric vehicle owner

“The impetus for us to buy an electric car was to further reduce our carbon footprint. We were pleasantly surprised to find the EV very fun to drive. It has great ‘get up and go’ and is very smooth when accelerating. Quite different from a gas powered vehicle. We haven’t bought gas in over 2 years. Low maintenance costs as well.
