What Are Some Benefits of Electric Cars?

Thinking about trading in your gas-powered vehicle for a forward-thinking electric car? There are numerous benefits of electric cars coming your way when you make the switch! Not only will you earn serious fuel savings commuting to Corona, but your daily travels will be greener, too, with low or even zero emissions, depending on your choice of an electric vehicle (EV) or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). When you’re ready to go electric, BMW of Murrieta’s new BMW inventory includes several luxury EV and PHEV options! In the meantime, you can explore some benefits of electric vehicles in the guide below.

Top 5 Benefits of Electric Vehicles

From the environmental benefits of electric cars to a lower cost to own for Riverside drivers, there’s no shortage of reasons to consider an EV as your next daily driver. EVs are growing in popularity with the number of public charging stations increasing across the country, making “range anxiety” a thing of the past. Tech-savvy drivers will also appreciate the abundance of advanced systems included in EVs like the BMW i3. Other benefits of electric vehicles include:

  • Lower Cost to Own: Without an engine under the hood, there’s far less maintenance involved in owning an EV! You can say goodbye to regular oil changes, saving lots of time and money that would normally be spent on maintenance. Many of today’s EVs also feature regenerative braking, meaning you won’t be using your brakes as often so the brake system requires less frequent maintenance.
  • Exciting Performance: Electric vehicles provide fantastic responsiveness, meaning there’s no performance trade-off to be made when you say goodbye to your gas engine. Electric motors can achieve equally–if not more–impressive horsepower and torque specs as gas engines.
  • Zero Emissions: Perhaps most important are the environmental benefits of electric cars. EVs create close to zero tailpipe emissions, helping contribute to cleaner air in Ontario. In fact, most EVs are built entirely without an exhaust system. \
  • Renewable Energy: The environmental benefits of electric cars don’t stop at zero emissions. They can also use renewable energy sources! This includes solar power, wind, or water.
  • No Noisy Engine: No engine under the hood also means no engine noise, leading to a quieter, more relaxing ride in Murrieta.
