Benefits of Electric Vehicles

From the environmental benefits of electric cars to the cost benefits of electric cars, EVs can improve the lives of our St. Petersburg, FL neighbors in so many ways. Take a moment to learn about the most compelling reasons to make the switch: 

  • Zero Tailpipe Emissions: Not only do EVs not produce tailpipe emissions, but increasingly, they're manufactured using renewable energy. What's more? Most public charging stations now rely on renewable energy to replenish your battery.  
  • Affordable Maintenance: With no more oil changes or engine upkeep, EVs are far more cost-effective to maintain. It's estimated that, over the course of ownership, they'll cost around 40% of what it costs to maintain a gas-powered vehicle. 
  • Instant Torque Distribution: EV motors supply your axles with torque instantly, meaning that EVs accelerate far more swiftly than most gas models. 
  • Incentives: Prices are dropping on EVs, and meanwhile, the Federal Government will give you a $7,500 tax credit to make your EV exceptionally affordable. 

Preparing to Buy an Electric Vehicle

Now that you've read about the environmental benefits of electric cars, as well as some of the other benefits of electric vehicles, take a moment to learn about what steps you'll need to take in preparation for your EV. First: 

  1. Set Up Your Garage: Clear a space in your garage. You'll have two home charging options: Level 1 and Level 2. You can use any three-pronged outlet to charge with a 120V Level 1 charger. However, Level 2 charging will require you to install a 240V outlet and have it wired to your power panel.
  2. Chart Out Local Charging Stations: Identify all the charging stations in your area that are along your commute or near your home. You can find charging station maps on sites like PlugShare or Chargeway.
  3. Find Incentives: As we mentioned earlier, EV shoppers are eligible for a $7,500 Federal tax credit, but many states, towns, and companies provide additional incentives as well. Do your research, so you don't miss out on opportunities to save!
