Benefits of Electric Vehicles: Environmental & More

Upgrading to an electric vehicle may just make your Snoqualmie drives even better. All of the benefits of electric vehicles—from the environmental benefits of electric cars to the fuel savings—make them the ideal upgrade for Bellevue-area drivers. Plus, EVs are chock full of the latest technology! Explore more benefits of electric cars here:

  • Eliminating Emissions: One of the environmental benefits of electric cars is that they produce close to zero tailpipe emissions. Electric cars usually don’t even have an exhaust system, so exhaust emissions are not a byproduct of the vehicle running.
  • Energy Sources: An additional environmental benefit of electric cars is the ability to fuel up on renewable energy. Electric cars are powered by electricity, so renewable resources such as solar, wind, and even water can be used to charge them.
  • Minimizing Maintenance Costs: Electric vehicles don’t need the same routine maintenance as traditional vehicles and don’t require engine oil, so there’s no need for oil changes and other maintenance.
  • Quieting Down Your Drives: Another unlikely benefit of electric vehicles is the quiet ride. Electric vehicles don’t have an engine and therefore don’t produce the loud sound you may have gotten used to on your rides.
  • Expect Performance: Electric vehicles can produce near-instantaneous torque, so you aren’t sacrificing a thrilling performance.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles: Prepping Your Home

  1. Prepare Your Garage: More charging stations are popping up around Redmond every day, but you’ll also want to get your garage ready for home charging. This will likely be your main charging method, so it’s a good idea to research the installation process before buying an EV.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Be sure you research the local charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway in addition to any brand-specific chargers you can use based on your Chevrolet EV. It’s also helpful to find stations along your route when traveling long distances.
  3. Explore Incentives: In most states, EVs are eligible for incentives and tax credits. In fact, you may be able to secure up to a $7,500 credit just by buying an electric car!
