Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining in popularity and IREA customers have expressed the need for more information. IREA wants to help. Some information and resources are below.

• Colorado residents who purchase an electric vehicle can expect a state tax credit of $2,500 – or more for an electric truck – through the end of 2022, and lower credits in subsequent years.

• Colorado has nearly 800 electric vehicle charging stations, the seventh-most in the nation.

• Electric vehicles convert about 60% of electricity from the grid into wheel power. Conventional gas vehicles convert only about 20% of gasoline energy into wheel power.

• More than 100 models are expected to be available by 2022.

Below are links to resources that will help you select and get the most out of an electric vehicle.
