Electric Vehicles are back!

The idea of electric vehicles is not new, in fact it’s quite old.

Today’s electric vehicle technology is at its most advanced stage. At Nate’s Green Garage we strive to bring together the best quality parts and as many American made parts as we can. We partner with local renewable energy companies to provide you with solar or wind systems to further help the environment and save you money.

It’s not just a status thing, it is for the air and environment around us. It is obvious that America and the rest of the world needs to start planning and developing cleaner transportation. At Nate’s Green Garage we strive to bring you clean transportation to fit most or all of your needs. Our goal is to service vehicles that fuel our evolving industry. We take great pride in our work and would like to continue the American growth in the electric and hybrid vehicle industry.
