What Are the Benefits of Electric Vehicles?

What exactly are the reasons to upgrade to a new EV from Wynn Volkswagen near Collegeville? Whether you’re searching for an efficient car that will cost less to maintain or you’re just looking for something that will let you ride in the HOV lane during your daily commute from Phoenixville to King of Prussia, an EV can deliver what you want from a new vehicle. 

Some of the main benefits of electric cars are as follows, environmental and otherwise:

  • Less Maintenance: Gasoline cars are such prima donnas, requiring high-maintenance costs. EVs, on the other hand, don’t require oil changes or other maintenance that gas cars do! That makes them cheaper to maintain.
  • Zero Emissions: There are a ton of potential environmental benefits of electric cars, especially if you choose to charge your vehicle off-the-grid. In and of themselves, EVs offer zero emission performance. 
  • Renewable Energy: Looking to take advantage of solar, wind, or even hydroelectric energy? You can with an EV! While traditional gasoline combustion engines require gasoline fuel, which is a petroleum derivative, EVs can be charged using renewable energy.
  • Quieter Drive: One of the major benefits of electric vehicles when it comes to ride quality is the quietness of the drive. EVs don’t have a traditional engine, so they offer whisper quiet acceleration and performance. 
  • Performance: Did you know that EVs offer near-instantaneous torque? It’s true. Many run-of-the-mill electric vehicles, even with relatively low horsepower, offer torque that’s comparable to what you’d feel in much more expensive performance vehicles.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

There are many benefits of electric cars, but there are a couple things you’d be wise to keep in mind before buying one, also. Here are some tips:

  1. Prepare Your Garage: EV charging stations are becoming more readily-available around Conshohocken, but they’re not quite commonplace yet. That having been said, you’ll definitely 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: Check out where local chargers from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway are. Map out  route plans for common places you drive so you know where nearby chargers are. It’s also smart to do the same for long-distance trips.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are often eligible for more incentives and tax credits than gasoline cars. You could even benefit from up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an EV! Needless to say, that’s a major benefit.
