About This Quiz

It takes a special kind of person to break away from convention and drive an electric vehicle. After you finish answering our questions, we can take it one step further, though. We can tell you which electric car you are! 

While we do realize that you are not actually a car, automotive technology is changing every day, and each new vehicle put on the market comes with a unique set of traits that provide the car with personality. Once you tell us about your love for cars, the way you drive and the environmentally conscious way you think, we will assign you the electric car that you are most like. 

From the self-driving capabilities of the Tesla Model X to the utilitarian efficiency of the Chevrolet Bolt, electric vehicles are making quite a name for themselves on the auto circuit. Electric cars no longer need to be charged every few miles. In fact, one battery charge can now last as long as a traditional tank of gas! 

As you cruise through the drive-thru of our quiz, make sure to answer as honestly as you can. Don't skimp on your inner horsepower, and we'll do the rest of the work. Will you be the electric car you think you are?
