Buying a car is a big decision. Next to a home, it’s perhaps the biggest purchase a New Yorker will make. An electric car is different enough from a conventional one that it requires some extra information.

This section has two parts. The first explains the nuts and bolts of electric cars; how they drive, how they’re unique, and the many ways they’ll be familiar. The second describes how the cars work in everyday use. People use their cars differently, so this section includes various driving scenarios, cost to use, and where you can find them.
