FRESNO, Calif. (PRWEB) June 13, 2022
The San Joaquin Valley is one area of the country that could benefit the most from the adoption of Electric Vehicles. The air is often the worst in the nation and the pollution from private and commercial transportation contribute to the bad air quality. While new EVs may not be in the reach for all Central Valley residents, Century Motors has a mission to sell affordable EVs…”EVs for the rest of us” is their slogan. Century Motors is part of a program managed by Valley Clean Air Now to assist low income residents with a rebate of $9500 to retire a 2006 or older vehicle. Besides fully Electric Vehicles, Century also offers Plug-In Hybrids and Hybrids, all are sure to save consumers money on their monthly fuel costs.
They offer a wide variety of Used Electric Vehicles, including the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt and Volt, Hyuandai Ioniq, Ford C-Max Energi, Chrysler Pacifica PHEV and many other models.
There are many EV models perfect for commuting within Fresno and have a range of 45-90 miles. Of course the Chevy Bolts, Teslas and newer model EV's have longer range (230 or more).
One of the most often asked questions by shoppers is…”How do I charge my and where can I find public charging stations?” says Gordon Jessop, General Manager of Century Motors. “Our team explains that there are options if you live in a house or an apartment and using an app like PlugShare will show you all the EV Charging stations in your area. With a Level 1 charger you can plug it into the wall of your house or apartment and charge your car overnight. Even if you fully charge your car every night over the course of a month you would barely add $10-$100 bucks to your PGE bill (and that's really pushing it)...compare that to filling up $100 worth of gas every couple of days or every week.
The one thing that makes Century Motors stand out is that they only focus on Electric Vehicles and Hybrids. Franchise dealers are not as knowledgeable and Used Dealers have almost no experience with EVs.
The Central Valley of California is unlike major metropolitan areas, where people must drive cars due to the long distances between some cities. Public transportation is not often an option in the Valley since it comprises several small cities from Bakersfield to Sacramento such as Delano, Visalia, Hanford, Lemoore, Selma, Fresno, Madera, Merced, Modesto, and dozens more.
Electric Car Community Events in Fresno
Century Motors hosted the Best Drive EVer event on Saturday, May 14th, 2022 as a way to educate Fresno residents about the benefits of driving electric, the available rebates, how to charge EVs at home or at public stations. The event was held in coordination of the Valley Clean Air Now, San Joaquin Air Pollution District, Clean Vehicle Rebate Program, EV Equity, San Joaquin Valley Clean Cities Coalition, San Joaquin Valley Electric Vehicle Partnership, EV Perks and Fresno Council of Governments. EV Test Drivers were given free lunches and entered to win nearly $1k in raffle prizes. The San Joaquin Valley Tesla Owners Club event made an appearance to show off some of their custom Teslas.
Century has the vision to become the leader in Used EV sales and support in the Central Valley and they now will accept crypto currency as a form of payment, thus opening their customer base to a much larger audience.
In another Valley first, Century is building an EV Charging Hub inside its showroom where consumers can purchase home Level 2 chargers and businesses can come by to learn about rebates and grants related to Commercial Level 2 and DC Fast Charging via the ChargeUp! program managed by the San Joaquin Valley Air District.
Century Motors is putting its money where it counts and for a limited time, you can receive a $25 Gift Card for just coming in and test driving an EV. They believe once you drive an EV and learn about the available rebates, it’s an easy decision to drive Electric! Of course, the Valley benefits as each EV will reduce carbon emissions from each mile driven.
