What are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

Honda Plug-In Hybrid

The benefits of electric cars, beyond the straightforward environmental benefits of electric cars, are numerous. All in all, the benefits of electric vehicles mean they are already better for day to day driving than standard internal combustion engine (or ICE) vehicles for most Union and South Plainfield area drivers. Take a look at the reasons for this below, and get in touch with us if you have any questions!

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Here’s why electric vehicles are more than just trendy new vehicles:

  • Practicality: Electric vehicles can have more internal space because batteries can be under floor, and motors are much smaller than engines.
  • Safety: Because an engine isn’t in the middle of a vehicle’s crumple zone, electric vehicles can be made much safer, not to mention the anti-rollover benefits of the extremely low center of gravity of electric vehicles with floor-mounted batteries.
  • Speed: We’ve probably all seen the videos of electric cars smoking the fastest supercars, and while EVs often aren’t built for speed, even without a performance focus their more efficient motors offer instant torque.
  • Reliability: The motors are also simpler, making a huge chunk of the common maintenance and repair items ICE vehicles face simply non-existent.
  • Convenience: A primary benefit of electric cars is that you can wake up to a fully charged EV in your garage, for much less cost than it takes to fill up at a gas station. To take full advantage of home charging, contact us for details!

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: A home charging station is something an electrician can install, which will give you the full benefits of an EV. Because electricity is much easier to generate than gasoline is to refine, it’s several times cheaper to power your car with electricity.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: If you don’t have a garage, find out where local charging stations are, just to confirm how practical an EV is for you.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs commonly have available tax credits up to $7,500.
