What are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

2022 Mazda MX-30 EV

If you’re looking to take your Fort Worth rides to new heights with a car that’s equal parts high-performing and energy efficient, consider an electric vehicle! EVs and hybrids were once niche, expensive, and hard-to-find, but that’s not the case anymore–nearly every popular automaker has an electric car or an electric variant of a current model. But what are the benefits of electric vehicles? The team at Hiley Mazda of Hurst - DFW has all the details in the guide below, so you can be as informed as possible while shopping. Read on, and be sure to keep an eye on our new vehicle inventory to stay updated on what we have available!



What are the Benefits of Electric Vehicles?

The benefits of electric cars generally fall into two categories: efficiency and performance. They also typically enjoy the latest technology inside and outside the cabin, making for a rider that’s more connected and comfortable than ever! Here’s just some of what you’ll enjoy when you upgrade to an electric vehicle in the Dallas area:

  • No Emissions: One of the most significant environmental benefits of electric cars is close to zero tailpipe emissions, due to the lack of an exhaust system equipped in gas-powered cars.
  • Benefit From Renewable Energy: Another of the environmental benefits of electric cars is the ability to take advantage of renewable resources, including solar power, wind power, and hydropower.
  • Decreased Maintenance: Electric cars lack a lot of the same parts as their gas-powered counterparts, so they don’t require as much regular maintenance. For example, electric cars don’t require engine oil, so you never need to go in for an oil change!
  • Peaceful Drive: As soon as you step inside the cabin of an electric car, you’ll immediately take note of the near-silent ride thanks to the lack of engine noise!
  • Instant Performance: Electric cars are famous for their near-instantaneous torque and powerful acceleration, making for a thrilling ride where you’re driving.

What to Do Before Buying an EV From Hiley Mazda of Hurst - DFW

  • Get your garage ready. You’ll likely be doing most of your charging at home via a Level 1 or Level 2 charger, since public charging stations aren’t quite numerous enough to get the job done. Be sure to research what type of charger you want beforehand, then have it installed by a trusted electrician.
  • Locate charging stations. If you need to top off your battery on the go, make a list of local charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway. You should also take note of public chargers if you’re planning on taking a long road trip in your EV.
  • Check for incentives. One major benefit of driving an EV is you’re often eligible for incentives and tax credits unavailable to gasoline cars. You may be able to secure a $7,500 federal tax credit just by buying an EV!
