At the first of three events for this year's "Drive Electric Northern Colorado," I had the pleasure of talking with a lot of great people. One of them was Director of Strategic Initiatives with the Electrification Coalition Ben Prochazka, who had some great insights on how cost effective electric cars really are.

He mentions a lot of things I never really thought about before, like how much less maintenance electric cars need.  Check out the video, and get ready to be surprised!
