Why Buy an Electric Car?

Mercedes-Benz EV

Most automotive manufacturers have made pledges to shift to fully electric lineups over the next two decades, so it comes as no surprise that many Oakville drivers are seriously considering EVs for the first time. After all, they don’t require gas and driving them doesn’t create tailpipe emissions, but why else should you buy an electric car? Take a moment to learn more about the environmental benefits of electric cars, as well as the consumer benefits of electric vehicles. Then, contact Mercedes-Benz Burlington to arrange for some test drives!

Benefits of EV Ownership

Why should you buy an electric car, SUV, or truck? The environmental benefits of electric cars are well-known, but Milton drivers have so many reasons to switch to electric vehicles. Benefits of electric vehicles include:

  • Cost: Not only is gas far more expensive than electricity, saving you thousands a year, but EVs require far less maintenance than vehicles with combustion engines. Not to forget, you’re likely eligible for thousands of dollars worth of federal and provincial tax incentives!
  • Power: Electric motors are exceptional at generating torque, so expect especially thrilling acceleration. What’s more? Electric vehicles no longer require you to sacrifice power for efficiency. After all, we’re beginning to see more and more EVs in Formula One™!
  • Environmental Benefits: EVs don’t require gas consumption, meaning that they don’t produce tailpipe emissions. They do, however, require you to charge their batteries with electricity. But most public chargers draw that power from renewable energies, and if you charge from home, you can always switch your energy provider over to one that can supply your power grid with renewable energies. Either way, drive an EV, and you’ve drastically reduced your carbon footprint.
  • Convenient Charging: Home chargers are faster than ever. Opt for a Level 2 240-volt charger, and you’ll likely be able to charge your EV completely while you sleep.
  • Other Perks: Many cities and provinces provide incentives for driving an EV that extend past tax rebates. For instance, you may enjoy unlimited access to the HOV lane!
