Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Believe it or not, when it comes to electric vehicles, there are way more benefits beyond the lack of emissions that help the environment. Going electric has become more and more popular, and for good reason. Not only do you usually get a vehicle equipped with premium tech and features, you also get to enjoy benefits like:

  • Zero Emissions: There are plenty of environmental benefits of electric cars and one of them is the close to zero tailpipe emissions. Most electric cars don’t even have an exhaust system so exhaust emissions are not a byproduct of the vehicle running.
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can use renewable energy. Electric cars are powered by electricity meaning they can take advantage of renewable resources such as solar, wind, or even water.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles don’t require engine oil so there’s no need for oil changes. 
  • Quieter Drive: One major benefit of electric vehicles that most drivers instantly notice is the serene ride. Electric vehicles don’t necessarily have any engine noise so there’s less commotion in the cabin.
  • Performance: Car enthusiasts rejoice! Electric vehicles truly provide unbeatable performance. The electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque so you can still find thrill on your drives.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: Charging stations are becoming more numerous, but they’re not quite ubiquitous yet. So you’ll want to prepare your garage for home charging. Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times). Then, have your at-home charging system installed. Chances are, this will be your main method of EV charging.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Map out a list of charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway in addition to any brand-specific chargers you can use based on the particular EV you drive. It’s especially helpful to know where stations are when traveling long-distance, but knowing where local chargers are in a pinch can be very helpful as well.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are often eligible for more incentives and tax credits than gasoline cars. In fact, you may be able to secure up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car!
