What are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

2021 Chevrolet Bolt with people

We’ve all heard about the countless environmental benefits of electric cars, but what about the lower ownership costs and quieter ride quality? You might be surprised by just how many benefits of electric vehicles there are – and drivers all over East Hills and Bayside have already taken notice! Learn why so many customers are making the switch to electric, and check out your options at Major World Chevrolet!



Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Many Forest Hills drivers are blown away by the ease and convenience of electric car ownership – not to mention, the fuel savings in just one year! Here are just a few of the reasons that so many drivers are choosing EV everyday:

  • Zero Emissions: One of the top environmental benefits of electric cars is lack of harmful emissions. No exhaust system means no exhaust byproducts, which translates into a more eco-friendly ride.
  • Renewable Energy: The potential for renewable energy is another huge advantage of the EV segment. Gas-powered vehicles are limited to one type of fueling, while electric vehicles can take advantage of renewable energy sources, which includes everything from solar to wind and even water power.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Because electric vehicles don’t have combustion engines, they don’t require motor oil at all. That means no more oil changes!
  • Quieter Drive: One of the most surprising benefits of electric cars is the whisper-quiet ride. You won’t notice just how much noise a combustion engine makes until you drive a car with a nearly-silent electric motor.
  • Quick Performance: Modern EV models produce near-instantaneous torque, so there’s no need to sacrifice exhilarating performance for a greener drive!

What to Do Before Buying an EV

If you’re ready to experience the many benefits of electric cars, how should you prepare your home for the arrival of your new Bolt EV or Bolt EUV?

  1. Prepare Your Garage: Unlike gas-powered cars, one of the biggest benefits of electric cars is home charging. Install a Level 1 or Level 2 charging station right in your own garage to charge overnight. 
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: In addition to home charging, you can charge on the go. More and more EV charging stations are popping up all over the nation, so look for companies like PlugShare and Chargeway along your normal driving route.
  3. Explore Incentives: Beyond the savings in fuel, one of the biggest financial benefits of electric cars is the potential for incentives and tax credits for buying an EV. Many drivers qualify for a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car, so be sure to do your research!
