Why Make the Switch to an Electric Vehicle?

Many drivers have already heard about the numerous environmental benefits of electric cars, but that’s just the beginning. From the whisper-quiet ride quality to the drastically reduced maintenance costs, the EV market has a widespread appeal that has caused popularity to skyrocket. Here are just a few of the reasons why so many people make the switch to an all-electric lifestyle.

  • Zero Emissions: One of the biggest environmental benefits of electric cars is the lack of emissions. Because there’s no engine, there’s no exhaust system. That means no emissions at all!
  • Renewable Energy: Unlike traditional gas-powered vehicles, EV models can also take advantage of renewable energy resources like solar or wind power.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Not only will you enjoy zero emissions due to the lack of a combustion engine, but you’ll also eliminate all engine-related maintenance services. No more oil changes!
  • Quieter Drive: One less-discussed benefit of electric vehicles is the quiet drive. You might be surprised by how loud a combustion engine is and how peaceful an electric vehicle feels by comparison.
  • Performance: Just because there are environmental benefits of electric cars, that doesn’t mean the EV performance is less than stellar. In fact, electric motors can produce near-instantaneous torque, and horsepower figures rise and rise with every new generation.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

We’ve gone through the benefits of electric cars, so what do you need to do if you want to buy a new VW ID.4?

  1. Prepare Your Garage: While you can top off your battery at the many charging stations around Tysons Corner, most drivers install a Level 1 or Level 2 home charging station for convenience.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Look at companies like PlugShare or Chargeway to find charging stations nearby, and don’t forget about brand-specific chargers along the way as well.
  3. Explore Incentives: Unlike gas-powered models, EV models are often eligible for incentives – including a potential $7,500 tax credit!
