Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Electric cars are becoming more popular than ever before! They’re packed with advanced technology and comfort features that will enhance your driving experience. Additional environmental benefits of electric cars include:

  • Zero Emissions: One of the many benefits of electric cars is having 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.
  • Quieter Drive: Drivers will also instantly notice the serene ride since electric vehicles don’t have any engine noise, so there’s less commotion in the cabin.
  • Renewable Energy: Electric cars are powered by electricity, which means they can take advantage of renewable resources like wind, solar, or even water.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles do not need engine oil, so you won’t have to worry about a Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacement. Also, electric cars generally have regenerative braking systems, so you won’t have to brake as often.
  • Performance: Electric vehicles provide unbeatable performance on the roads. The electric motors can produce near-instantaneous torque, so you can still find thrill on your drives!

Steps to Take Before Buying an EV!

  1. Prepare Your Garage: Charging stations are becoming more numerous, but they’re not every just yet. Prepare your garage for home charging since this will be your main method of charging your vehicle. Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times). Then, have your at-home charging system installed.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Map out a list of charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway, as well as any brand-specific chargers that you can use based on the particular EV that you drive. It’s good to know where stations are when driving beyond Indian Hill or out-of-state, but knowing where local chargers are in a pinch can also be helpful.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are often eligible for more incentives and tax credits than gasoline cars. You might be able to get up to a $7,500 tax credit when you purchase an electric car!
