Benefits of Electric Vehicles

There are many benefits of electric vehicles and they are usually packed with modern technology features. These are some additional benefits of electric vehicles:

  • Zero Emissions: One of the key environmental benefits of electric cars is the nearly zero tailpipe emissions. Most electric cars in Mascoutah don’t even include an exhaust system!
  • Performance: EVs provide a remarkable driving experience with many producing near-instantaneous torque! We’re talking zero to 60 in seconds! Are you ready to feel the thrill? If so, contact us at Auffenberg Ford South Belleville!
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars that some people are unaware of is that they sometimes use renewable energy. Electric cars can be powered by electricity generated from renewable resources like wind, solar, or water.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Fully electric vehicles don’t utilize engine oil so there’s never a need to change the oil. 
  • Quieter Drive: One key benefit of electric vehicles is the tranquil ride. Because electric vehicles don’t have a combustion engine, they don’t generate any engine noise.
  • Tax Advantages: Most electric vehicles qualify for tax advantages and other incentives! Talk to your CPA about it, or get more details from the finance team at Auffenberg Ford South Belleville.
