Understanding EVs

Electric vehicles (EVs) are fun to drive, cheaper and easier to maintain than gas-powered vehicles, and contribute fewer emissions into the air. With tax incentives available and a fast-growing network of charging stations, find out if owning an EV is the right choice for you.

Which EV is Right for My Needs?


All current electrified Chevy models are Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), which combine a battery pack and electric motors. These all-electric cars don't require any fuel or leave any emissions trace. They also have fast recharging times at your home in Cold Spring or at public charging stations around Litchfield and Saint Cloud, MN.


Traditional Hybrid Electric Vehicles paved the way for today's EVs. With regenerative braking and hybrid powertrains, Hybrids earn higher fuel economy ratings compared to generic vehicles. Tax credits and benefits may not apply.

The Many Benefits of Electric Chevrolet Vehicles


A federal tax rebate up to $7,500 is available on many EV models.


Even more possible savings from your state and/or utility company.


EV owners can expect to spend half as much on maintenance and repair (Consumer Reports).


Charge while you sleep, or at a growing number of public chargers.


Enjoy fast and smooth acceleration, better handling, and a quieter ride.


Plug-in hybrids provide electric range for short trips and gas-power for longer journeys.

Have a Level 2 at-home charging station from Qmerit - Chevrolet's charging partner - installed in your garage in Sartell, Saint Cloud, Litchfield, or rural Minnesota.
