Testimonials | Electrify Your Ride VA


  1. "Wonderful! A comfortable, fun car that is good for our environment. I have saved the receipt ($18.76) from my last purchase at a gasoline station. Maybe I'll get it mounted."

    Don, Chevrolet Bolt

  2. "The Volt has been everything I hoped for. My family and I haven't had to change our lifestyle at all to do something a little positive for the environment."

    Chris, Chevrolet Volt

  3. "We want to thank Green Energy Consumers Alliance and the Electrify Your Ride program for making our Chevy Bolt EV purchase easy. The EV information on the Electrify Your Ride website makes it easy to compare the EV models and expected costs/savings. The Chevy Bolt is now used for a 100+ mile roundtrip daily commute, replacing a minivan that got about 25 MPG on the highway. The Chevy Bolt is an excellent complement to our solar PV Tracker system"

    Kevin and Gina, Chevrolet Bolt

  4. "It was great working with the Electrify Your Ride program and getting a new Nissan LEAF! It's great not needing to fill up at gas stations anymore and the LEAF is fun to drive! EVs are very zippy because you get maximum torque the second you step on the pedal, and the car starts decelerating the moment you take your foot off."

    Mark, Nissan LEAF

  5. "Since buying the Bolt, we have driven it over 7,000 miles. We love it! Where we really expect to win with this car is maintenance: there's no oil to change, no muffler to rust out, and brake pads and rotors will wear very slowly because we use regenerative braking most of the time. We checked the manual recently to see if we were due for scheduled maintenance, and there is far less scheduled maintenance than with a carbon-burning car. And no carbon emissions! All in all, this car really proves that electric cars can be practical for most people."

    Rand and Carolyn, Chevrolet Bolt

  6. "Concerned about climate change, we had wanted to replace our old car with an electric car, and this program made it a no-brainer. Once we had picked up our LEAF we boasted about it and the Electrify Your Ride program to all our friends and relatives. A week later, our sister soon surprised us with her own Electrify Your Ride LEAF! Here's a family photograph of us and our clean electric cars, taken on a day in February when temperatures reached 70F. How appropriate!"

    Kaat, Nissan LEAF

  7. Thanks to your program myself and a co-worker have made the leap to electric. I love my new Volt. I have put almost one thousand miles on it, but only spent about $25 in gas! The ease and convenience of using a regular plug and outlet make charging easy, as I didn't have the expense of installing a pricey charge-specific outlet. The standard features of heated seats and steering is huge. My last car was a Chevy Blazer that I had almost 18 years, so the new updated computer features have been really exciting. I never thought I could afford a new vehicle, especially an electric vehicle, but the incentives were too good to pass up for a lease. Two of my co-workers have also purchased Volts, so we compare charge point locations! I picked up my son at college yesterday and the fold-down back seats were very handy. The best part is the color- love the Blue!"
