Why Buy an Electric Car? Discover the Perks of EVs

2024 Cadillac LYRIQ Light Gray

EV ownership has many perks, as many Graham and Weatherford drivers are discovering. Of course, there were many innovators who pushed for the advancement of electric vehicles way back at the turn of the 20th century. But it’s only in much more recent years that EVs have become so in vogue once again with the advent of new battery technologies. Accordingly, brands are increasingly coming out with EV models. Of course, other options like the Cadillac CT-5 are by no means newcomers and are pretty popular here in Breckenridge for good reason.

With all the above having been said, there must be some benefit to owning an EV that doesn’t come with owning a regular gasoline car, right? The answer is a resounding “Yes!” To explore the many perks of EV ownership, keep it with us here at Bayer Cadillac, and read on!

What are the Perks of EV Ownership?

There are many advantages to buying an EV vs. a standard internal combustion vehicle. Cost, environmental impacts, and less required maintenance are just a few. Let’s go over some of these below!

  • Cost of Owning an EV: Let’s face it, cars can be money pits. Not so with EV ownership. Electric cars are, on the whole, cheaper to maintain than their gasoline counterparts. Sweet!
  • Cutting-Edge Technology: EVs often include information displays with systems that monitor energy usage, along with other cutting-edge technologies.
  • Environmental Impacts of Owning an EV: If you charge your EV “on the grid,” you’ll still be tied to fossil fuels, but you can also use solar, wind, or other renewable sources of charging for a zero-emissions ownership experience! On the whole, EVs offer a greater chance of lesser environmental impacts. What’s more, even EVs using grid power are still generally less harmful to the environment.
  • Maintenance Required for EV Ownership: When you own a gas-powered car, you need to keep up with things like oil changes, transmission flushes, and more. EVs require much less maintenance.

In addition to the above, EVs make extremely affordable used cars! So if you’ve been hunting for a fuel-efficient used car for sale near Weatherford or Abilene, perhaps forsaking the fuel altogether in favor of an electric motor is a better option yet!

What to Know Before You Go All-In on EV Ownership

Get Your Garage Ready for Your EV

It’s no secret that EV ownership is on the rise. But even still, there aren’t as many EV charging stations around Weatherford and Abilene as there are gas stations. As such, it’s important to get your garage ready. First, figure out what kind of charging station (i.e., Level 1 or Level 2) you will be eligible for. Contact us if you have any questions. Then, be sure to get the system installed in a timely manner.

In addition to at-home charging, you can also charge your EV at a public charging station. Why? You can top off your battery while you work or shop, creating efficiencies. But public charging may also be significantly faster than charging at home.

Explore Possible Savings via Tax Credits

EVs may cost more than regular gas cars for the moment, but that may swing the other way eventually once auto manufacturers continue to embrace the associated technology. In fact, many OEMs (car brands) have already committed to “electrifying” their lineups in the coming years. What’s more, you may be eligible for a tax credit on your next EV purchase. Of course, here at Bayer Cadillac, we’re also always offering money-saving new vehicle specials!
