What Are the Benefits of Buying an Electric Vehicle?

Part of shopping for a new car is deciding the make and model you want, but you also have the option of purchasing a traditional gas-powered vehicle or a new up-and-coming electric car. If you are considering the latter, here are some considerations to help you make the right choice for you.

Skip The Gas Station

Once you have an electric car, you don’t need to go to the gas station anymore. No more pumping gas in the rain or cold. An electric vehicle runs off a large battery that you plug in every day or night. With the price of gas constantly fluctuating, it’s an expense you’ll save on every week. Current models get anywhere from 80 to 100 miles on a full charge, which is enough for the majority of drivers. Many businesses are installing electric vehicle charging stations, making it more convenient to charge while on-the-go.

Cheaper Operation

The initial cost might be a bit steep, but the maintenance costs will be significantly less. Since you’re not using an internal combustion engine, you don’t have to worry about the exhaust system or to get regular oil changes anymore, which add up throughout the year. Other engine components that depend on gas are eliminated and simplify repairs. The average cost is around $30,000, but tax credits can significantly decrease your expense.

Environmentally Friendly

Electric vehicles are better for the environment — especially because they don’t give off emissions. Generating the electricity contributes less to emissions relative to gasoline, and these methods are becoming friendlier to the environment by using wind and solar power instead of primarily relying on coal. You’ll help preserve air quality in your area and feel better knowing that you’re doing your part to help combat global warming.

Smooth and Quiet

Electric cars are much quieter than traditional automobiles with internal combustion engines. They start and take off quickly, but don’t make much noise while doing so and are almost startlingly silent while at a stand-still. Some are so quiet you’ll wonder if the car is running at all. They’re quick to accelerate and newer technology makes braking more efficient, reducing wear and tear during operation.

Remember that it will be a bit different than owning a regular gas-powered vehicle. For example, while with regular cars, you can store them with some careful preparation, such as changing the battery and checking that fluids are topped off, electric vehicles can be different. While you’ll still be changing the oil and making sure the gas tank (for select cars) is topped off, you actually need to keep the battery charged or disconnect it.

Purchasing an electric vehicle might be venturing into new territory, but it appears to be the future for the automobile industry. Take advantage of the benefits and adopt the idea sooner rather than later to capitalize on the benefits.
