It’s no small thing to buy an electric vehicle. That’s why the city of Tacoma and Tacoma Public Utilities are partnering to smooth the way.
On Monday, the city and TPU announced a discount purchase or lease plan worth up to $3,000 at participating dealerships in the area. The program also covers home charging equipment and offers a 10 percent discount on specific electric bike models at Old Town Bicycles and Tacoma Bike.
The car models and dealerships covered by the Electric Vehicle Discount Program is at bit.ly/2QEkga4.

And, if you missed the recent test drive of electric vehicles at LeMay-America’s Car Museum but still want to learn more, educational workshops are being offered at Tacoma Public Library branches through November. Schedules for that and locations are at bit.ly/2xornuo
