What are the Benefits of Electric Vehicles?

While the environmental benefits of electric cars are obvious to some, there are more benefits of electric vehicles than just the complete eradication of exhaust emissions over the entire lifetime of the vehicle. Modern electric vehicles, or EVs, are a new technology that continues to rapidly evolve and are in the midst of putting issues like EV range anxiety to bed. Originally enabled by the exact same technology that made smartphones and laptops commonplace, EVs make driving smoother, cleaner, more reliable, faster, and more practical – all for way less money in the long run.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Here are some of the highlight benefits of electric cars for Monticello and Anoka area drivers:

  • Practicality: Electric vehicles can have more internal space because batteries can be under the 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 not exist anymore.
  • 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.
