Expenses down. Profits up.

Bottom line, your next car purchase has to pencil out. Sure, electric cars cost less to charge than filling up at the tank, but how much do you really save?

60% LOWER FUEL COST

.99 cents of electric charging goes about the same distance as one gallon of gas.

TAX & DEALER INCENTIVES

With federal and state tax breaks, plus rebates from the manufacturer, you could save up to $10,000

ALMOST ZERO UPKEEP

Fewer parts could save you hundreds or even thousands in annual maintenance.

Financing For Electric Cars

Forth has launched a financing program to help rideshare drivers purchase an electric car. Rates will be below 9.9% and vary depending on credit and income.

Electric cars are much cheaper to operate and maintain than traditional combustion engines, and they are increasingly affordable. Many electric cars can be leased for under $200/month, and some three-year-old electric cars can be purchased used for less than $10,000.

If this interests you, please email Tegan Molloy at teganm@forthmobility.org for more information.
