Zero Emission Vehicles: Driving into the future






Last month, Washington state reached our 2020 goal of having 50,000 zero-emission electric vehicles (ZEVs) on the road. This figure includes plug-in hybrids, all-electric, and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.

Emissions from transportation contribute nearly half of Washington?s greenhouse gas pollution?the pollution that is causing climate change. That?s a huge deal to us at Ecology. It?s why we?re shifting more and more of our agency fleet to ZEVs, and it?s why we?re investing much of Washington state?s $140 million from the Volkswagen diesel cheating scandal into ZEVs and charging infrastructure. 

What is a ZEV" ZEVs are any vehicle that releases zero, or nearly zero, emissions during operation. ZEVs continue their clean operation throughout their lifespan, unlike standard vehicles which typically produce more air pollution as they age. 

There are two types of ZEVs:

Battery electric vehicles (EVs & BEVs) run entirely on batteries and are recharged from the electrical grid.Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) run on electricity produced from a fuel cell using compressed hydrogen.
Although not zero emission vehicles, the following hybrids are worth mentioning for those who are concerned about finding convenient charging stations, or need longer driving ranges, while still reducing their carbon footprint.

Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) combine a smaller conventional gasoline-powered engine with a battery that can be recharged from the electrical grid.Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), are vehicles that you don?t plug-in. HEVs still provide the benefits of high fuel economy and low tailpipe emissions.
How much do ZEVs cost"ZEVs come in all shapes and sizes, from compact cars to SUVs, and just like standard-engine vehicles, vary in price and amenities. Compact models can be as low as $24,000, but most ZEVS now cost around $40,000 new, similar to the cost of a conventional vehicle. Plus, you could always purchase a used ZEV.

Owners can expect to save around $6,400 in lower maintenance costs ? even before tallying up the fuel savings. ZEVs don?t require oil changes, transmission fluid, spark plugs, or air filters. Brake pads usually last much longer in electric vehicles and can capture and reuse as much as one-fifth of the energy normally lost during braking through ?regenerative braking.? This means, when you use your brake, you are helping charge your battery!

So? about those fuel savings. That?s where ZEVs really shine. Considering that Washington has some of the lowest electricity costs in the nation (80 percent of it is  generated from renewable resources, like hydro and wind) some ZEVs cost less than $1 to reach a full charge. Compare that to the cost of refueling a conventional car!

Are there tax breaks if I buy a ZEV"Yes! The federal ?Qualified Plug-In Vehicle Tax Credit? offers tax credits from $2,500 - $7,500 based on battery size, vehicle weight, and emission standards.
