What are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV on Street

The benefits of electric cars certainly start with their much lower emissions, with no emissions at all when driving, far fewer overall emissions even when powered with energy generated from fossil fuel powerplants, and even when accounting for the emissions to produce the electric vehicles to begin with.



But there’s more to it than that. The environmental benefits of electric cars are pretty intuitive, but the benefits of electric vehicles also include extremely low costs to own. Fuel, electricity in this case, is several times cheaper than gasoline or diesel. Plus, maintenance costs tend to be much lower simply because there are vastly fewer parts to maintain in the powertrain of the vehicle. To learn more about how a Bolt EUV or one of Chevy’s upcoming electric vehicles could make your Livonia and Canton drives easier, visit our dealer! Now, let’s get into some details.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Here’s just a few of the benefits of driving an electric vehicle, or EV:

  • Zero Emissions: Electric vehicles have no exhaust emissions whatsoever.
  • Renewable Energy: Because electricity can be generated with renewable resources, unlike gasoline, EVs can be driven with energy you produce yourself, or from sources that are environmentally friendly. 
  • Reduced Maintenance: Electric motors have only one moving part, so pretty much all maintenance related to the powertrain is no longer a thing.
  • Quieter Drive: Electric vehicles run whisper quiet.
  • Performance: Instant torque means EVs feel much faster than their stats would have you think.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: With a home charger, your EV will always have a full charge in the morning!
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: See where local charging stations are, especially if you can’t have a charger at home.
  3. Explore Incentives: Significant tax incentives are available for EVs.
