Have you been watching the automotive market closely, seen all the new electric vehicles, like the NissanLEAF, but have been hesitant to make the leap? Well, lucky for you there has never been a better time to purchase an electric car. The following are some reasons why you should buy an electric vehicle.
You can get a tax credit: The federal government is offering one-time tax credits to electric car buyers up to $7,500. These will be going away soon, so now is the time to buy.
You’ll save money — and make money, too: Electricity is significantly cheaper than gasoline, meaning you will save money with every mile you drive. Also, due to improvements in technology and a growing climate crisis, electric vehicles are growing increasingly popular, meaning they have a decent resale value.
Range anxiety is a thing of the past: One reason some drivers are hesitant to purchase electric cars is because of range anxiety. However, electric vehicles have been increasing in range so you easily complete your daily commute without worrying about charging. The Nissan LEAF, for example, can now travel up to 226 miles between charges with the new 62 kWh battery.*
It’s easy to find a place to charge: Public charging stations are more common than ever in the U.S. According to the Department of Energy, there are over 20,000 public stations in the U.S. As such, you can conveniently charge your vehicle while on the go or at home.
Maintenance is easier: Another way you can save money, as well as hassle, is in vehicle maintenance. Traditional gas-powered vehicles need regular engine oil changes, which can be costly and time-consuming. Electric cars don’t need oil changes, so you’ll save money in the long run.
