Cartelligent – Convenience and Savings

We have selected Cartelligent as a partner to negotiate great pricing on select vehicles. Cartelligent charges a flat fee of $495 for lease or finance ($295 for cash purchase) to handle the entire transaction, providing you with expert guidance, negotiating the entirety of the deal including lease and finance rates, and allowing you to bypass the games and haggling of the traditional process.

Climate Actions – Small and Big

We all do small things for the environment. And, every so often we have the opportunity to take an action that has a big impact. Now is the time! When we replace our gas-powered cars with clean electric vehicles, we reduce 40% of our carbon footprint and never need to use gasoline again! Drive Clean Bay Area is a nonprofit campaign with a mission to reduce carbon emissions, and we’re here to help you drive electric today.

Benefits of Driving Electric

Driving electric means no more trips to the gas station. You’ll save about 75% on your gasoline bill and appreciate virtually no car maintenance. You’ll zip through traffic with a carpool sticker and enjoy a superior driving experience. Clean. Quiet. Fast. The feeling of joining the clean revolution? Priceless.

Convenience and Savings

Drive Clean has partnered with Cartelligent, a highly-regarded Bay Area concierge car buying service, to provide pre-negotiated group purchase discount pricing. There is no minimum number of participants required to receive discount pricing through the end of the year. A dedicated agent will provide unbiased advice and help you find the exact model and trim for your driving needs. Cartelligent offers several convenient locations for car pick-up and Drive Clean will even provide an EV Driving Guide.

EVs: Power Up During Power Shutdowns

We know, it’s counterintuitive to say an EV is preferable for emergencies and power shutdowns. But they are, and here’s why: Emergency experts recommend keeping your gas or electric car at least half full at all times. With an EV, there are no repeated trips to the gas station. Instead, you can simply plug in at home each night during fire season and sustain a full battery. Easy! During power shutdowns, you can connect an inexpensive and easy-to-use device, an inverter, to your EV to power LED lights and electronics in your home and you’ll only use a fraction of your car battery. Just one more reason drive electric.
