3 Reasons You Should Switch to an EV

It’s a question on the minds of many car buyers as more and more automakers prioritize the marketing of electric vehicles, “Do I stick with the same internal-combustion vehicle, or should I be seriously considering an EV?”

It’s become obvious that EV’s are the way of the future but making the switch to electric can be a big decision. There are many factors to consider but ultimately it comes down to making an informed choice that is right for you. 

Here are our top 3 reasons to go for it if you are considering making the jump to electric this year!

  1. Low running cost

Once you’ve decided to purchase an EV, the day-to-day running costs are much lower than if you were to drive a gas or diesel model. 

The cost to charge an EV is significantly lower than the cost of fuel to fill a car to cover the same range of mileage. Of course, this cost is dependent on how, when and where you charge,  just like filling up your car using different gas stations, but it will cost a fraction of what you would pay for gas or diesel. Add to that the convenience of charging your EV at home and you can say goodbye to those stinky gas stations and the rising cost of fuel.

  1. High kilometre range

“Range Anxiety” is real and arguably the top concern for EV buyers. The fear of being stranded somewhere is understandably stressful and a huge factor for most that are considering purchasing a new electric vehicle. 

EV’s have evolved to go a long way with a wide range of driving capabilities that can go from 150 km to more than 450 km.  When making the change from an internal-combustion engine to electric you should consider your driving habits and how often you might need to charge your EV. You can charge an electric vehicle overnight and a full charge will be waiting for you in the morning, or you can become familiar with the charging stations in your area should you need a quick charge during your day. With the growing number of EV’s on the road, charging stations are becoming more available than ever.   

  1. Zero emissions

If you’re considering an electric vehicle, it’s probably fair to say that you’ve been thinking about the planet and your impact on it. Electric cars offer zero emissions when on the road which greatly reduces CO2 and other harmful greenhouse gases.

Fine particles that exit out of car exhausts have been shown to be harmful to health. No exhaust and fumes equals no pollution. A decision to buy an EV is a decision to lessen your carbon footprint and contributes to a cleaner and greener planet.

Making the switch to electric can be a big decision, but not a scary one. With careful thought and a little research to find the right EV for you, your next vehicle could not only save you money but can also help save the planet.
