Benefits of Electric Cars

The technology for electric vehicles has been around for a while, but recently there’s been a massive increase in electric vehicle manufacturing, with some of America’s most recognizable brands joining the fray. These vehicles will drastically lower your carbon footprint, but a lot of Charlotte drivers aren’t aware of the intricacies of electric vehicles. Hendrick Cadillac Monroe has a guide for the benefits of electric cars below!

Benefits of Electric Vehicles Compared to Hybrids

A lot of Pineville drivers come to us asking about the environmental benefits of electric cars compared to the now-popular hybrid vehicles. And things get more complicated when you add plug-in hybrids to the list! Let’s go over some key differences concerning the benefits of electric vehicles and hybrids:

  • Hybrid Charging: Hybrid vehicles contain both an electric and a gasoline engine, with the gasoline engine mainly serving to charge the electric motor. This means you don’t have to worry about charging your vehicle at home!
  • Electric Charging: Hybrids still need to use fuel to get the electric motor running, but one of the big benefits of electric vehicles is that you won’t need to go to the pump at all — your vehicle can be charged at home or at a charging station.
  • Hybrid Plug-Ins: The hybrid plug-in is a sort of in-between option; it has two engines like the hybrid, but it can be switched to an entirely electric vehicle for short commutes and trips. Like electric cars, plug-in hybrids need to be plugged into a charging station to charge the electric motor.

Environmental Benefits of Electric Cars

As most Concord drivers have learned, the combustion engines in gas vehicles produce harmful emissions that create a hole in the ozone layer, leading to catastrophic climate change. Most manufacturers have plans to completely leave the combustion engine behind in the next few decades, so now is a good time to be a part of the future! Electric vehicles produce zero emissions, so you can enjoy a greener commute to Monroe.

Benefits of Electric Cars for Drivers

It’s not just the environmental benefits of electric cars that incentivize drivers to get behind the wheel. There’s also a number of driver-centric reasons to invest in an electric car:

  • Saving Money: Imagine a world where you don’t take trips to the gas station all the time! You’ll be charging your vehicle just like any other electronic device, and it’s rare to need battery replacement. Electric cars are less likely to need expensive repairs as well, and since there is no engine, you never have to get an oil change again.
  • Incentives: There are a number of federal and state government incentives attached to owning electric vehicles, in addition to incentives from cities, insurers, utility companies, and more!
  • Variety:  You may have associated electric vehicles with one brand before, but many of your favorite manufacturers are now making electric vehicles. With electric crossovers, sporty cars, and luxury vehicles on the market, it’s likely you’ll find an electric car that fits your needs!

Nothing exemplifies the future of electric cars quite like the upcoming Cadillac LYRIQ. The idea behind this vehicle is to adapt to the future electric car market while sustaining the level of quality and excellence that goes into every Cadillac car. It’ll drive like a dream and have great features like:

  • 22” wheels
  • Black Crystal Shield made with a brand-new finishing technique
  • 33” diagonal interior display
  • Inteluxe seating with aluminum accents
  • Cadillac Super-Cruise™ automated driving technology

And in addition to the benefits of electric cars, you’ll get all the Cadillac owner benefits.
