What Are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

Mercedes-Benz EV Charging

Many Larchmont drivers have heard about the environmental benefits of electric cars, but that’s just the beginning. Did you know that electric vehicles offer lower maintenance costs and quieter rides? You might be surprised by all of the benefits of electric vehicles, and Mercedes-Benz of New Rochelle is here to highlight a few in depth. And if you want to experience the benefits of electric cars up close, we’d love to show you our new EV and hybrid inventory in New Rochelle

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

The environmental benefits of electric cars are well known, but even if you aren’t so concerned about green technology, there are still countless advantages to EV ownership. Here are just a few of the perks of making the switch to electric:

  • Zero Emissions: One of the biggest benefits of electric vehicles is the lack of tailpipe emissions. Because the EV doesn’t have an exhaust system, it can’t produce emissions like a traditional car.
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is the potential for renewable energy. EVs in the future could utilize renewable resources such as solar, wind, or even water to fuel completely off-grid.
  • Reduced Maintenance: An internal combustion engine requires a great deal of maintenance, but EVs don’t! No more oil changes and filter changes to schedule. 
  • Quieter Drive: An underlooked benefit of electric vehicles is the quieter ride. Until you drive with an electric motor, you probably won’t realize just how noisy a traditional engine is!
  • Performance: Electric motors can produce near-instantaneous torque every time you put the pedal to the floor, which means you don’t have to sacrifice performance!

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  • Prepare Your Garage: Some Mamaroneck drivers simply plug their EVs into a grounded outlet to access Level 1 charging. But, most drivers get a Level 2 charging station professionally installed in their home for extra convenience.
  • Find Local Charging Stations: More and more electric charging stations pop up around Bronxville every day, so be sure to map out some options along your everyday driving routes. You can also look up popular companies like PlugShare or Chargeway specifically or download apps to find the nearest stations on the go.
  • Explore Incentives: Many EV models qualify for up to $7,500 in tax credits, and you can often find other state or local incentives if you do a little research. Feel free to ask us for more information!
