Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

The transportation sector contributes nearly half of Vermont’s greenhouse gas emissions. Electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) offer opportunities to reduce carbon emissions, and the technology has continued to improve with better range and cold weather performance.
