Our EV Guides

Helping you on your journey

Guides and Checklist

Ride and Drive Clean is a trusted source of unbiased information about all things EV. As part of a nonprofit collaboration dedicated to raising awareness and providing education about EVs, we offer tools to help you navigate unfamiliar terrain. We don’t accept funding from car companies. We don’t pick favorites.

Our guides contain up-to-date information. They were created in response to questions from people like you, to help you decide — and then drive! — the EV that fits you best.


Find the best EV for your lifestyle and budget

Buying or leasing an EV? There are many things to consider including whether to buy new or used, what range you’ll need, and more. We’ve developed an EV New Buyer Checklist to help you along the way.
