The Core Benefits of Electric Cars, Trucks, and SUVs

There’s a constantly growing number of electric vehicles on the market today, and the great thing about them is that they all share a set of core benefits, no matter what make or model they are. They are conceptually different from the traditional cars, trucks, and SUVs we’ve known for roughly a century now. And this difference is full of wonderful perks and benefits like being packed with the latest technology, as well as the following:

  • Enjoy Zero Emissions
  • There’s lots of environmental benefits of electric cars, possibly the grandest one being that they have zero to little tailpipe emissions. Most electric cars require no ‘exhaust’ system whatsoever!

  • Utilize Renewable Energy
  • Another of the big environmental benefits of electric cars is that they can use renewable energy such as solar, wind, or even hydroelectric energy.

  • Reduced Maintenance Needs
  • Full electric vehicles don’t require engine oil so there’s no need for oil changes! While it’s still a good idea to set regular appointments, they won’t need to be quite as frequent as those for gas or hybrid vehicles.

  • Impeccably Quiet Drives
  • A huge personal benefit to the owners of EVs is that they are universally quieter rides than any other kind, making for peaceful and aware Ashland commutes. Electric motors produce very little noise and vibration compared to traditional gas engines, which helps to achieve this reduction in noise in the cabin.

  • Eye Opening Performance
  • If you seek a headrest-pressing experience from your vehicle, EVs might surprise you. Electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque which makes on-ramps and such a wonderfully exhilarating experience!

There’s a number of other benefits to EV ownership, which we’re happy to explore with you over the phone, online, or in person. Are you interested in learning more? You can also click here to read about the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV, which we’re particularly excited about!
