EV Savings Calculator Available on Newly Launched Website

DETROIT – EV Live, the new website focusing on General Motors electric vehicles, is allowing customers calculate savings through an online calculator.

On the “ownership” tab of the page, GM says customers who switch to an electric vehicle may see savings in maintenance and fuel costs. State and local third-party incentives are also available to those who are qualified.

GM says while switching to an EV will save money in fuel costs, it is not the only area for savings. With fewer moving parts than an internal combustion engine, less maintenance costs are necessary in the long run the company says.

“With fewer moving parts, you benefit from less of the engine upkeep like oil changes, transmission fluid flushes and engine belt replacements,” GM says.

The online savings calculator estimates savings based on three factors: average fuel economy, annual mileage and zip code. After entering those three responses into the calculator, customers can “visualize” potential savings.

The savings calculator and several other features can be accessed at https://evlive.gm.com.
