You might be surprised by just how much money and time you can save by switching to a model like the Ford Mustang Mach-E! Plus, there’s never been a better time to check out the EV market. There’s a wider variety of electric models available than ever before, and plenty of new and used options to choose from. Take a closer look at the benefits of electric cars with Mike Murphy Ford!

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles get more and more popular every year for their innovative technology, and East Peoria drivers can easily find a new model to suit their needs. Here are just a few of the benefits of electric cars that you might not know:

  • Zero Emissions: One of the top environmental benefits of electric cars is the emissions-free driving experience. Since most EV models lack an exhaust system, exhaust is not a byproduct of your Pekin commute at all..
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is their use of renewable resources. An electric car can use solar, wind, or water power as an energy source.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Electric motors require less maintenance than a conventional gas-powered engine. That means no need to take time out of your schedule for those oil changes in Pekin.
  • Quieter Drive: One major benefit of electric vehicles that most drivers instantly notice is the quiet driving experience. Electric vehicles don’t have the engine noise of a gas-powered car, so you can just sit back and relax.
  • Performance: In addition to the fantastic efficiency, another benefit of electric cars is the nearly instantaneous torque. No need to sacrifice power for an eco-friendly drive.
  • At-Home Charging: You can find plenty of charging stations through PlugShare or Chargeway, but you can also install an at-home charging system for greater convenience.
  • Incentives: Many electric vehicles are eligible for incentives and tax credits – up to $7,500 just for choosing an EV!
