Benefits of Going Electric for Your Next Car

September 23rd, 2022 by

Electric vehicles are growing in popularity, and more automakers are making them. But why are EVs so popular? And why should you go electric for your next car from Massey Yardley? Explore some of the biggest advantages you’ll notice by going electric. 


Save Money


Depending on the car you buy, the initial price for an electric may be a bit more than a gas-powered vehicle. But this is not always the case, and it doesn’t account for tax incentives and other bonuses. But even if you initially pay a little more for your electric car, you will save money in the long run. 


Save Money on Gas


To start, you will save a lot of money by not relying on gas. That’s especially true with the recent gas prices. Yes, you will still have to pay for electricity to charge your car, but this is less than the associated cost for gas. In fact, some estimates say that charging an EV is about 40% less than what you would spend on fuel for a similar vehicle driven the same distance. You can save even more money if you find free charging stations or install solar panels at your house. 


Save Money on Maintenance


In addition to the lack of money spent at the gas station, you will spend less on maintenance and repairs at Massey Yardley’s service center. This comes from the fact that electric powertrains have fewer moving components than gas-powered engines. As such, there are fewer parts to replace or service. There will be some unique services and maintenance you need. However, transmission fluid, oil changes, spark plugs, and engine air filters are a thing of the past. 


Help the Planet


Of course, one of the big reasons people decide to drive an electric vehicle is to do their part to help the planet. EVs reduce tailpipe emissions and can have zero emissions, reducing the effect every drive has on the planet. 


You will still produce some emissions when you need to charge your car. After all, the energy you use to charge it has to come from somewhere. But you can further reduce emissions by using a solar system to charge your vehicle. 


So Many Options


In addition to the financial savings and the fact that you can help the planet by making your next car electric, you won’t have to limit yourself when choosing a vehicle. It used to be that only small or midsize sedans or hatchbacks were available as electrics. But now, you can find an increasing number of electric cars, including trucks, SUVs, and sports cars. From the electric Jeep Grand Cherokee to the Ram 1500 to the Durango, many vehicles are available. Thus, ensuring you can find an electric one that fits your lifestyle.
