You can compare the fuel cost per mile between a typical gasoline car vs our electric car by using the calculator below. Costs, such as: oil changes, tune ups, muffler replacement, and engine overhauls of a gasoline car, and battery replacement are not included.
We participated in the National Drive Electric Week event. Knoxville, Tennessee is one of 150 cities across the United States and Canada that hosted events the week of September 15th to 21st. This nationwide celebration is to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. The event was organized by the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition and was held in Knoxville at the Ijams Nature Center.
At Shockwave Motors, Inc. our plug-in electric cars are an innovative combination of the best of today's propulsion technology and sleek, aerodynamic styling.
The Electric Roadsters were designed with the help of a international team of experts. We are developing "purpose built" electric cars. We started with a clean sheet of paper and an open mind.
Rick Searfoss, Astronaut/Space Shuttle Commander and the current Director of Flight Test Operations and Chief Test Pilot for XCOR Aerospace, had this to say about Shockwave Motors, “I’ve seen a lot of high tech engineering developments through the years. No question about it: Shockwave Motors practices creative, out-of-this-world innovation!”
There are many Environmental Benefits of electric cars. Since Electric cars have no tailpipe emissions they significantly reduce all forms of air pollution in urban areas. In fact, EVs are considered zero-emission vehicles by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Pure Electric cars don’t have a gasoline powered engine, and therefore consume no power and create no pollution of any kind, when sitting idle at traffic lights or waiting in lines at fast food restaurants, banks, railroad crossings, and similar situations. According to the EPA, “A conventional gas car emits more greenhouse gases than an electric car driven in any area of the United States.” Studies have shown that when all factors are considered, electric cars produce less than half of the pollution of typical gasoline powered cars. Also, keep in mind, that somewhere for every gallon of gasoline we don’t use, up to 8 kilowatts of electricity are saved.
