Ah, the electric car (EV) craze. Seems like this is all people are talking about lately even though it’s been a topic of interest for a few years now.
Contrary to popular belief, there’s much more to it than simply saving when it comes to fuel. And with a bunch of models on the market these days, you’ll likely be able to find one that meets your aesthetic preferences. Let’s take a minute to discuss four of the top reasons to consider an electric car:
- Electricity is cheaper than gas. In fact, you can save nearly $3,000 per year in fuel costs when you switch from gasoline to electricity.
- Government rebates are available. Not only are electric cars fueled for cheap, there are lots of incentives for you to get money back from the government after you make your purchase.
- Say goodbye to emissions. While gas-powered vehicles produce harmful chemicals and toxic gases that pollute the environment, this will never be the case with an electric vehicle. They’re even better than hybrid vehicles when it comes to pollution so you’ll be contributing to a healthier, greener climate.
- Less moving parts = less maintenance. With gas-powered cars, there are tons of moving parts in the engine that often need to be lubricated. Additionally, you know how expensive it can be when a piece of the engine breaks down. With an all-electrically powered engine, there’s no need for lubrication and less of a chance something will go wrong.
