Electric Vehicles 

The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is actively collaborating on and sharing information and research that support electric vehicle (EV) technologies and infrastructure to improve safety, mobility, community prosperity, connectivity and quality of life.

EVs are powered by electric motors that use energy stored in batteries. Some run completely on electricity and some use a combination of electricity and a gasoline-powered internal combustion engine. Some you need to plug in to recharge, while others you don’t. All EV’s produce fewer emissions than conventional vehicles.
