Electric vehicles (EVs) are not new to AAA. Over the past decade, we have committed to learning, developing, and servicing EVs as their popularity has grown. We offer a variety of benefits specifically for those interested in EVs, including discounts at charging stations, support from our Roadside Assistance teams, and AAA’s travel planning tools to make planning road trips easier! Whether you are already driving an EV or considering making the switch, AAA is here to help!
Used EV Buyers Guide
Ready to plug in? Confidently shop with AAA’s new educational resource: Used EV Buyer's guide on how to shop for an EV. You may be attracted to the idea of going electric – but worry; you might face a steep price tag for a new EV. Or if you’re looking to add a second car to your household, you may see buying used as a feasible option.
Either way, AAA has you covered with this "pre-shopping checklist": basic background of EVs, driving range and charging, used EV ownership cost comparisons (battery versus gas-powered), repair and maintenance costs, and supplemental AAA car buying resources. Click here to view!
Mobile Charging Wherever You Need It
AAA understands that range anxiety might be the thing standing between you and venturing into the world with an electric vehicle. So, we want to eliminate that anxiety by introducing mobile EV charging at the roadside in select markets for our members who drive electric or are considering it. If you run out of charge, we will come to you and give you enough boost to get you to the nearest charging station or home. The best part – for AAA members, this service is provided at no additional charge.
AAA members can now request roadside electric vehicle charging services in these select cities:
Grand Rapids, MI
West Springfield, MA
San Francisco, CA
New markets are coming soon!
