An EV uses electricity to power itself. This energy is typically generated from sources that are much cleaner than burning diesel or gasoline in a vehicle. A lack of oil and tailpipe emissions also contribute to a healthier planet. In general, EVs produce fewer emissions that contribute to climate change and smog.
Considering an EV
If purchasing an EV has piqued your interest, there are a few things to consider as you narrow your choices to pick the right vehicle for you.
Refueling your vehicle is a major advantage of driving an electric vehicle. Rather than wasting time at a gas station, EV owners can refuel their vehicle in the convenience of their own home every day. On average Americans drive 30 miles each day, which is more than enough battery life for almost all current EVs on the market. It’s important to think about what kind of a range you will need on a daily basis to pick out the car that best suits you.
In general, the initial cost of EVs is more expensive compared to their ICE counterparts. It is important to note that fuel and maintenance costs are also far lower than their ICE counterparts as well, allowing for savings year after year. Nevertheless, EV technologies are reducing the overall prices of cars year after year. There are also several used EV cars on the market as well. No matter if it used or new, there is a practical and affordable EV that is right for you.
There is a whole webpage devoted here to charging your vehicle, but this is not a consideration to take lightly or to consider after you have bought a vehicle. It is important to understand how you are going to charge your vehicle, whether it be at home, at work, or on the go.
