BALTIMORE – It seems hybrid and electric vehicles are becoming the way of the future.
Ford Motor Company brought their “Power of Choice” vehicle tour to Johns Hopkins University to showcase their new cars, and show how Maryland can drive greener.
Ford and other companies now offer hybrids and electric cars in all shapes and sizes.
It costs about $3 to charge up the average electric car.
Baltimore was recently ranked among the Top 25 most electric vehicle ready cities in the United States, largely due to Maryland’s investments in electric infrastructure such as car charging stations.
Ford reported that its market research found that 41% of Baltimore drivers said that gas mileage was their primary concern in choosing a vehicle. It’s a statistic that both Ford and environmental leaders say will lead to more Marylanders going electric.
