HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Everyone knows it's harder and harder to fight traffic. But there's one thing you can fight: spending money on gas and polluting our air - with an electric vehicle. Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular because they save you money on gas and save our environment.  The number of electric vehicle options consumers have is growing every year.

Whether you buy or lease your vehicle, one of the unique features to know about using an electric vehicle is the Federal Tax credit, but make sure you consult your tax advisor.  There are also other incentives which can reduce the price even more.  An electric vehicle can also help speed up your commute time, because even with only one driver on board, electric vehicles can access high occupancy lanes. And you can get limited free parking in state and municipal parking lots and even on street parking.

 And with Earth Day coming up on April 22nd, now's a great time to think about an electric vehicle. Now you can make every day Earth Day!
