Why Should You Buy an Electric Car?

2020 GMC Hummer EV Frunk


Owning an electric vehicle offers plenty of benefits. The popularity of EVs has taken off in recent years, and there have been a lot of technological and mechanical developments made to EVs for efficiency’s sake. If you’re considering an EV for your next car, you can learn more about the many advantages of EV ownership below!



Why Buy an Electric Car? The Benefits

Let’s talk about some of those benefits below:

  • Cost of Owning an EV: On the whole, owning an electric is more affordable than owning a gas-powered car. They’re easier to maintain, because they don’t require oil changes or transmission flushes, and they don’t require gasoline.
  • Next-Level Technology: EVs usually include information displays with systems that keep tabs on energy usage, as well as other state-of-the-art technologies.
  • Environmental Effects of Owning an EV: Charging your EV on the grid means you’re still relying on fossil fuels, but you can use renewable energy sources as well. In general, though, EVs produce little to no emissions and are less environmentally harmful.

What to Know Before You Buy

Prepare Your Garage for Your New EV

The number of public charging stations is growing all the time, but nothing beats the convenience of having a charging station in your own garage. You can opt for a Level 1 or Level 2 charger for a home charging station. You’ll need to work with an electrician to get the charging station installed before you bring your EV home.

Find Charging Stations Near Houston

Even if you do decide to have a charging station installed at home, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the charging stations in your area. Do a quick search to find charging locations near you, or use an app to find good spots quickly.

Explore Possible Savings via Tax Credits

Depending on the manufacturer of your EV, you may be eligible for federal and state tax credits, incentives, and rebates. After an OEM sells a certain number of EVs, however, the federal tax credit drops off and is no longer available. So, be sure to check what kind of tax credits (if any) are available to you before you buy.
