Benefits of Electric Cars

Close Up Of Hand Holding Power Cable For electric car


Are you looking for a new car in the Boston area? If you want something high-performing with great fuel economy – while being environmentally-friendly – consider upgrading to an electric vehicle! EVs have become more and more popular in recent years, and they’ve become more easily available for everyday drivers. There are a lot of environmental benefits of electric cars – from zero tailpipe emissions to eliminating gasoline – but there are other advantages as well. EVs typically have the latest and greatest technology, they’re low-maintenance, and they offer a smooth, quiet ride. The team at Ocean Honda of Weymouth has put together a guide outlining all the best benefits of electric cars below.



Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Here are some of our favorite benefits of electric cars, including environmental and performance advantages:

  • Zero Emissions: One of the most prominent environmental benefits of electric cars is a lack of tailpipe emissions, since most EVs don’t have an exhaust system.
  • Renewable Energy: Among the other environmental benefits of electric cars is the ability to take advantage of renewable energy resources, including solar power, hydropower, and wind power.
  • Reduced Maintenance: EVs tend to be lower-maintenance than their gasoline-powered counterparts since they don’t have some of the same components. For example, EVs don’t require engine oil, so you won’t have to bring your car in for an oil change.
  • Quieter Drive: A quiet cabin is one of the most recognizable benefits of electric cars. As soon as drivers get behind the wheel, they notice the serene ride due to the lack of engine!
  • Performance: The environmental benefits of electric cars don’t come at the expense of performance! EVs are equipped with powerful motors that provide near-instantaneous torque, capable of giving your rides a serious upgrade.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: You can find public charging stations in the Quincy area more frequently these days, but it’s still best to have a charger installed in your home. You can choose between a Level 1 and Level 2 charger setup – the charging times vary, so do some research beforehand to decide what works best for you.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: You can take advantage of public fast-charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway, if you need some quick charging done outside the house. This is also useful if you’re planning on taking long road trips in your EV – make a list of charging stations on your route before leaving.
  3. Explore Incentives: One of the other benefits of electric vehicles is their eligibility for tax credits and incentives. You may be eligible for a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an EV!
