EUGENE, Ore. -- Free workshops are coming to Eugene to give you more information on the benefits of owning electric vehicles.

The "rEV Up Eugene!" workshop shows people that it's easier than they think to own an electric car.

The University of Oregon, EWEB, and the city of Eugene partnered with local auto dealers to put on these workshops.

Staff with "rEV Up Eugene!" say the overall cost during the life of an electric car ends up being less than a combustion engine car and their battery lasts longer than you think. They say there are many charging stations all over the city in case of a charging emergency and there are even apps that keep track of them.

The first workshop is at 6 p.m. April 18 at the UO campus.
