Charge NY is New York State’s initiative to get more electric cars and trucks on the road. With a growing list of more than 40 all-electric and plug-in hybrid models to choose from, driving electric has never been easier. Visit your local franchised new car dealership today to arrange a test drive.

Electric vehicles (EVs) save money and reduce air pollution. Compared to gasoline-powered cars, EVs are more energy efficient and cost about 50 to 70 percent less to operate per mile. Charge NY is helping the State get ready to accommodate up to 1 million plug-in electric vehicles by 2025. To support these new electric vehicles, up to 10,000 EV charging stations will be installed across the State by 2021.

NYSERDA, the New York Power Authority (NYPA), the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), Con Edison, Greater New York Auto Dealers Association (GNYADA) and NESCAUM support driving electric in New York.
