HOUSTON – Electric vehicles are gaining in popularity.
There are now more options for drivers, including an EV pickup truck. While you may be curious about owning an electric vehicle, there are a few things you should know before taking the plunge.
We are looking into the five top questions people have about owning and buying an electric vehicle.

“Faster than you need to go,” Kothari said. ”The speed is ridiculous.”
Kothari also loves never having to go to the gas station. He saves about $2,600 a year in fuel costs since all he pays to power the car is electricity.
“The first thing people ask me is did your electricity bill change? I couldn’t see a difference,” Kothari said. “It might be a few dollars a month?”
