What Are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Charging

Are you considering upgrading to an electric vehicle? Along with the environmental benefits of electric cars, an EV offers Winnipeg-area drivers many other advantages over gas-powered vehicles. Gone are the days when your only options when shopping for an EV were small underpowered cars. New all-electric vehicles like the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford F-150 Lightning are capable of providing a level of performance that can match or exceed their gas-powered competitors.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

As a green alternative to gas-powered vehicles, the environmental benefits of electric cars should be readily apparent. However, there are additional benefits of electric cars that you may not be aware of:

  • Zero Emissions: EVs don’t have an exhaust system, so harmful emissions are not a byproduct of the vehicle running.
  • Renewable Energy: Electricity is a renewable resource and can be produced with solar or wind power.
  • Reduced Maintenance: A fully-electric vehicle doesn’t require engine oil, so there’s no need for oil changes.
  • Quieter Drive: An EV is powered by an electric motor, so there’s no engine noise.
  • Performance: Electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque, so you can still enjoy plenty of get-up-and-go on Steinbach-area highways.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

Interested in buying one of the EVs in our new vehicle inventory? There are a few things you should do before you drive home in your new electric car:

  1. Prepare For Home Charging: Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times) before you have your at-home charging system installed.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Take a look at the EV charging stations available near you. Online resources and apps offered by ChargeHub and PlugShare can provide you with listings of charging stations wherever you travel in Canada or the USA.
  3. Explore Incentives: Many EVs are eligible for exclusive incentives and tax credits, so make sure you look into what’s available.
