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.

An Electric Initiative

This ini­tia­tive is led by Dri­ve Clean Col­orado in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Col­orado Ener­gy Office and the ReCharge Col­orado coach­es from orga­ni­za­tions statewide includ­ing CLEER, 4CORE, and North­ern Col­orado Clean Cities

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.
