Benefits of Electric Vehicles

From the environmental benefits of electric cars to their cost-effectiveness, there are numerous benefits of electric cars that you can enjoy in Staten Island. These benefits include: 

  • Zero Emissions: One of the most significant environmental benefits of electric cars is that they emit close to zero tailpipe emissions. Most EVs don’t have an exhaust system, so they don’t produce exhaust emissions when running. 
  • Renewable Energy: In addition to not producing emissions, another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can operate on renewable energy. EVs are powered by electricity, meaning there can also be powered by renewable sources like solar, wind, and water. 
  • Reduced Maintenance Cost: Since full electric vehicles don’t require engine oil, you don’t have to pay for oil changes. 
  • Quieter Drive: Since electric vehicles don’t use engines, they offer significantly quieter drives. 
  • Performance: EVs house electric motors that are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque, so you can still enjoy an exciting driving experience. 

These benefits of electric cars are just the beginning of what they can bring to your daily life. Use our vehicle finder service to find an EV in our inventory that suits your needs. 

How to Prepare for an EV

  1. Get Your Garage Ready: Even with the number of public charging stations rapidly increasing, you still want to have a home charger of your own. Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups have different charging rates), then have your at-home charging system installed. This will likely be your main method of EV charging.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Use apps like PlugShare or Chargeway to map out charging stations in your area or along your route if you’re taking a road trip. You’ll also want to note any brand-specific chargers you can for your specific EV. 
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are often eligible for incentives and tax credits. In fact, you may be able to secure up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car!
