Clean Cities' Handbook Educates Drivers About Electric Vehicles

September 21, 2011

A handy new resource is now available to help drivers make informed decisions about purchasing electric vehicles. Published by Clean Cities, the Plug-In Electric Vehicle Handbook for Consumers answers basic questions about these advanced technology vehicles, including how they operate and how to charge them, the benefits of ownership, how to maintain them, which type fits your needs, and much more.

Available on the Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center and Clean Cities websites, this comprehensive, 16-page guide is the first of a series of handbooks Clean Cities is developing to educate consumers, fleet managers, public station owners, and electrical contractors about the benefits of plug-in electric vehicles as a personal, fleet, or business solution.
