Drive Electric Colorado / Lyft

Welcome to Drive Electric Colorado!

We see you're rid­ing in one of Lyft's elec­tric vehi­cles, or EVs! If you're here, that means you're inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about EVs and we're here to help.

Learn More About Electric Vehicles

1. Elec­tric vehi­cles are bet­ter for the environment.

It's true! No tailpipe means no harm­ful emis­sions when you dri­ve. Elec­tric vehi­cles also pro­duce lit­tle to no noise, reduc­ing noise pol­lu­tion on our roads.  In addi­tion, you'll reduce your expo­sure to ben­zene and oth­er volatile organ­ic com­pounds at gas sta­tions and in your home.

2. Elec­tric vehi­cles will save you money.

EV sav­ings real­ly add up! Accord­ing to this Con­sumer Reports arti­cle, EV own­ers will expe­ri­ence high­er life­time sav­ings than gas-pow­ered vehi­cle own­ers, even despite a high­er upfront EV price. EV own­ers spend half of what gas-pow­ered vehi­cle own­ers spend on main­te­nance, plus the cost of elec­tric­i­ty is much low­er than gas. You can for­get about oil changes, engine flu­id needs, and fuel fil­ters when you dri­ve an elec­tric vehicle.

In addi­tion, there are tax cred­its avail­able for new or leased EVs. Get $2,500 in state tax cred­it for a new EV and between $2,500-$7,000 in fed­er­al tax cred­its. When these cred­its are applied, many EV prices are reduced sig­nif­i­cant­ly, match­ing or even beat­ing gas-pow­ered car competitors.

How Much Can I Save by Driving an EV?

3. Elec­tric vehi­cles are fun to dri­ve!

With fea­tures like instant peak torque pro­vid­ing max­i­mum pow­er and quick accel­er­a­tion, regen­er­a­tive brak­ing, and a smooth, qui­et ride, it's no sur­prise that once you dri­ve an EV, you may nev­er want to go back! Most elec­tric vehi­cles also have the same, if not more, dri­ving assist fea­tures and some are equipped with autonomous dri­ving capa­bil­i­ties to help you relax and reduce risky dri­ving behavior.
