Benefits of Electric Vehicles

There are more and more EVs of all kinds hitting the market every day, and along with the environmental benefits of electric cars, major advancements in electric vehicle technologies allow you to enjoy the same, if not better, acceleration and performance capabilities you’d get with a traditional internal combustion engine. Some key benefits of electric cars include:

  • Zero Emissions: No exhaust system means that harmful emissions are not a byproduct of the vehicle running.
  • Renewable Energy: Electricity is a renewable resource and can be produced with solar or wind power.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles don’t require engine oil, so there’s no need for oil changes. Overall you’ll find that electric vehicle maintenance can cost $330 less ($949/annually) than that required for a gas-powered vehicle.
  • Quieter Drive: Because they run on an electric motor there’s no engine noise, which reduces noise pollution and makes for a more calm and serene ride.
  • Performance: Electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque, so you can still enjoy all the get-up-and-go you need on Sherman Oaks-area highways.
  • Tax Credit: You may be able to receive a tax credit on your electric vehicle purchase. Check with the team at Cadillac of Beverly Hills to learn more.
