EVs in Colorado (December 7, 2023)
Drive Electric Colorado exists to provide you – individual consumers – with information about electric vehicles in Colorado. We have established a goal to put 940,000 electric vehicles on the road in Colorado by 2030, paving the way for a long-term goal of 100% light-duty vehicles (passenger cars and trucks) to be electric. This is important because gasoline and diesel passenger vehicles create greenhouse gases that are detrimental to clean air across our state.
Drive Electric Colorado is part of Drive Electric USA, a Department of Energy-funded project comprised of Clean Cities Coalitions, electric vehicle groups, and other committed partners from fourteen states. This project engages individuals, utilities, legislators, dealerships and others towards removing adoption barriers and accelerating plug-in electric vehicle use throughout the United States.
