How to Find Your Electric Vehicle

Many car dealerships throughout Oregon now offer models of new electric vehicles, and used EVs could appear on almost any used car lot. Be sure to check out the page EVEVA Save Money with EVs to find out about federal and state rebates, and to calculate how much money you could save.

EWEB and EPUD are partnering with Portland-based nonprofit Forth to offer deals through an EV Certified Dealership program for their utility customers. Just take a test drive at one of the certified dealerships and you will be entered to win a $250 cash prize. If you are a customer of EWEB or EPUD and you purchase or lease an EV, you can register it with the utility and receive a $100 cash bonus. Click the EV-Drive logo for a detailed pamphlet. Certified dealerships are indicated in the list below.

PlugStar provides an excellent Shopping Assistant to help you figure out which electric car best fits your needs. It then can link to you local dealerships and used car shopping sites to help you find that car.

If you happen to be in Portland, there is an electric vehicle showcase downtown which is operated by the nonprofit educational organization Forth. The showcase has several different makes and models on-hand to test drive, so you can get a sense for the range of vehicles available without having to visit multiple dealerships. Click here or on the logo to visit the website, which also has a guide in PDF format that provides battery ranges, prices, and basic specifications for EV models presently available. The showcase is located at 901 SW 1st Avenue in the World Trade Center in Portland.

Where to Buy or Lease Your EV

When you have found the EV models that interest you, look for them by make and model on local dealership websites. Most dealership websites aren’t yet set up to search for “all electric” or “100% electric models,” so you have to search by model name. Some local dealers’ websites have the ability to search by “New” or “Used” vehicles, then search for the make and model you want.

Some sales people are more knowledgeable about EVs than others. Where we have identified a particular sales person, the name is provided. Let us know if you find a sales person who really knows EVs, and we will add their names here.
