More and more drivers are upgrading to a hybrid or electric vehicle. With the numerous advances in battery and automotive technology, there’s never been a better time to pick up an all-electric or hybrid car, truck, or SUV. If you find yourself wondering about the benefits of electric cars, just keep reading! We’ll talk about the environmental benefits of electric cars, as well as the fuel saving benefits!

Top 5 Benefits of Electric Vehicles

There’s plenty of benefits of electric vehicles these days — we think they’ll fit perfectly into the lives of people who otherwise would have never thought to buy an EV! Aside from being chock full of the latest and greatest features, owning an electric vehicle also comes with these benefits:

  • Zero Emissions: There’s a number of environmental benefits of electric cars, including the fact that they don’t need an exhaust system. This means they produce zero emissions in Charleston!
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can use electricity sourced from renewable energy.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Fully electric vehicles have less mechanical moving parts and don’t require engine oil, so there’s no need for oil changes. 
  • Quieter Drive: Electric vehicles don’t necessarily have any engine noise, so there’s less commotion in the cabin.
  • Performance: The electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque so you can still find a thrill on your drives!

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: Home charging stations are becoming increasingly popular and more readily available around Mount Pleasant, and retrofitting your garage with one shouldn’t be terribly difficult, especially with the help of a certified electrician.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Using your smartphone’s map application to tag local charging stations near North Charleston is a clever way to have quick access to information about where they are.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are often eligible for more incentives and tax credits than gasoline cars. In fact, you may be able to secure up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car!
