Top 7 reasons to buy an
Almost everybody knows that an electric vehicle is much cleaner than a vehicle that uses gas; not only is it better for the environment, it can save you some a lot of money too. However, many people are dissuaded from investing in an electric car when it’s much better to buy a new electric car now than to invest in a used non-electric car. Here are the top 7 reasons to buy an electric car:
Electric cars have a far lower cost per mile
Electricity to refuel an electric car is far cheaper than gasoline and there are electric vehicle charging stations providing power free of charge. The sooner you sell your gasoline guzzling car, the sooner you’ll save the planet and have more money in your wallet.
Electric cars are eco-friendly and get cleaner as time goes on
If you want to do your bit for the planet, switching to an electric car will help. As coal and other fossil fuel plants used to produce electricity are replaced with cleaner resources, the vehicle will actually get cleaner as time goes on.
The price of gasoline can’t be predicted
The price of gas is constantly going up and down and has been predicted to stay that way for the next 3 decades. Electricity prices remain fairly consistent, rising slightly each year making budgeting for your vehicle much easier. Your electric vehicle is also unlikely to be affected by gasoline shortages and other similar events.
There are government incentives to buy
These days, the government offers many cash incentives to urge you to buy an electric vehicle. Sometimes you can also get money off your insurance policy and you can get money back on some electric cars. These incentives won’t be around for ever and you can capitalize on them by investing in an electric vehicle early.
They’re great for all occasions
Even if you need to take longer trips than the range of your fully charged electric car, a plug in hybrid is an electric car that has no limits at all. They have batteries in them that were made for longer trips, but they can also be transformed into a gasoline hybrid if you need to take a longer trip. Perfect for every occasion!
You can charge it from home
Although there are charge points you can top up your car from, there’s no need for you to drive anywhere to charge your car – you can do it right from the comfort of your own home.
Maintenance is simple
In an electric car, you’ll find far fewer moving parts than in a car that takes gas, plus there’s nothing combustible in it. Pair this with the fact that you can charge it from home and you’ll find that an electric car is the perfect choice for your next vehicle.
By now you should be convinced that an electric car is the way forward. When you buy your next vehicle, consider switching from gasoline to a modern electric car. Make the swap and do your bit for the environment.
