Benefits of Electric Vehicles

It’s no secret that electric cars are only getting more popular in Hurst and beyond. But why? Here are some of the main benefits of electric cars:

  • Performance: Electric cars aren’t just for tree-huggers, though there’s nothing wrong with being one of those! The truth is that EVs offer near-instantaneous torque and impressive performance. You have to experience it to understand.
  • Renewable Energy: A major environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can be charged via renewable methods such as solar, wind, or even hydroelectric power!
  • Zero Tailpipe Emissions: There are plenty of environmental benefits of electric cars and one of them is the close to zero tailpipe emissions. True battery electric vehicles (BEVs) don’t even have an exhaust system.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles don’t need engine oil so there’s also no need for oil changes or other maintenance that pertains to the internal combustion engine.
  • Quieter Drive: EVs are usually substantially quieter than their gasoline counterparts.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: Charging stations are becoming more readily available around Keller and Dallas, but they’re not quite the law of the land just yet. So you’ll want to prepare your garage for home charging. Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times). Next, have your at-home charging system installed. Chances are, this will be your main method of EV charging.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Locate charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway in addition to any brand-specific chargers you can use based on the particular EV you drive. It’s especially helpful to know where stations are when traveling long-distance, but knowing where local chargers are in a pinch can be very helpful as well.
  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!
