ELECTRIC VEHICLES NORTH TEXAS

a campaign for electric vehicle education

Electric Vehicles North Texas (EVNT) seeks to educate and spread awareness of electric vehicle technology and applications. Organized by the Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities Coalition, EVNT’s collective purpose is to provide resources, technical assistance and host/coordinate EV events (EVents) in the North Central Texas Region to help reduce the barriers of EV adoption.

Environment

The Types of Electric Vehicles (EV)

All Electric Vehicles or Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs):

Run solely on electricity that they get from an electric source and use a battery to store the electric power received.

 

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles:

Are powered by an internal combustion engine in combination with an electric motor that uses energy stored in on-board batteries that cannot be charged by an external power source

Fuel Costs

EVs cost less to operate with fuel than gasoline cars, as electricity on average is cheaper per gasoline gallon equivalent than gasoline.

 

Electricity prices are also not as volatile as oil, which makes budgeting for an EV more consistent each year.

Maintenance

The cost to maintain an EV is generally much lower than fossil fuel-powered vehicles due to fewer moving parts.

 

EVs have single-speed transmissions and regenerative braking (reduces wear on brakes), and they don’t require oil changes, saving users money.

Emission Benefits

Battery electric vehicles produce no emissions while being driven, helping reduce air pollution, including ozone, the harmful pollutant created by Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), emitted by gasoline and diesel vehicles.

The well to wheels impact of EVs in TX is more beneficial than many other states due to the composition of the electric grid, with over 65% sourced being either clean natural gas or renewably powered wind.

EVs have less annual Well to Wheel Green House Gas Emissions for both light-duty and heavy-duty vehicle equivalents.
