Enjoy the Benefits of Electric Vehicles!

There are loads of environmental benefits of electric cars, and they’ll help enhance your Caseyville drives and everyday needs. EVs are packed with the latest technologies and amenities to help make you feel right at home in your vehicle. Additional benefits include:

  • Zero Emissions: There are plenty of environmental benefits of electric cars, with one of them being close to zero tailpipe emissions. Most electric cars don’t even have an exhaust system so exhaust emissions are not a byproduct of the vehicle running.
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they use renewable energy. Since they are powered by electricity, they can take advantage of renewable resources like solar, wind, or even water.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles don’t require engine oil so there’s no need for oil changes. 
  • Quieter Drive: An additional benefit is a serene ride you’ll enjoy with an EV. Since they don’t necessarily have any engine noise, there’s less commotion in the cabin.
  • Performance: Electric vehicles provide unbeatable performance on the East St. Louis roads. The electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque so you can still find thrill in your drives.

What Should I Do Before Buying an EV?

  1. Prepare Your Garage: While you’ll find charging stations in your area, it’s best to prepare your garage for home charging. Learn about your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times) before having your at-home charging system installed.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Know where the charging stations are when traveling long-distance, but you’ll want to know where the local stations are as well if you’re in a bind.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are sometimes eligible for more incentives and tax credits, allowing you to secure up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car!
