"The new mobility is here—the future is here—and so it's time now for people to really start considering how they can reduce their carbon footprint."

- Amy Atchley, Austin Energy

  • Austin Energy’s EV program launched an EV Buyer’s Guide to help people make the switch from gas to electric vehicles.
  • The Guide shows how much Austin Energy customers could save getting behind the wheel of an EV, whether buying or leasing.
  • The program also provides interactive digital kiosks to dealerships (top area sellers) that will help potential EV buyers understand charging levels and help consumers visualize how far they can travel using electric fuel.

Erin Autin from the super duper duo #EVerins joined AE’s Karl Popham and Amy Atchley at Town North Nissan recently to learn about how Austin Energy customers can save money and have fun, while helping the environment.

“Austin Energy is committed to the customer experience,” said Karl Popham, Manager of Austin Energy’s Electric Vehicles and Emerging Technology program. “We know electric vehicles can help people save money while helping the environment, but we also know most people are unfamiliar with purchasing an electric vehicle. That’s why we want to make it as easy as possible for people to understand this process.”

Austin Energy’s Electric Vehicle program launched EV Buyer’s Guide last month to help people make the switch from gas to electric vehicles. The EV Buyer’s Guide, available at EV.AustinEnergy.com, allows interested buyers to browse EV models in the Austin area and compare models that fit individual needs and budget. The guide also provides information about available incentives and tax credits, personalized for Austin Energy customers, and a full list of Austin Energy Plug-In EVerywhere charging stations.
