On this episode of the Perfect Cents Podcast, Alex & Brit team up with Jonathan Downes to discuss the benefits and challenges of gas and electric vehicles!

During the Professional Experts segment they provide an overview of the various pros and cons of owning a gas-powered vehicle, in addition to the pros and cons of EVs.

In the Best Solutions segment, Brit & Alex explore practical strategies for maximizing your efficiency and offer additional considerations for you to take into account before making the switch to electric. 

In the Community Impact Corner, they share information on how you can get rid of your old car by donating it to a local nonprofit organization.

Afterwards, they open up the Email Vault to share bonus advice from employees at SAFE who also own electric vehicles...

Because understanding how an electric vehicle might fit into your life as we progress towards the electric future, just makes Perfect Cents!
