Electric cars have become more and more popular over the past few years, as they’ve gone from something expensive and hard to find to a widely-available, affordable choice. Electric vehicles enjoy increased fuel economy, advanced technology, and a whole host of environmental benefits for Oakland drivers! If you’re looking to give your rides an upgrade and get some serious advantages at the same time, an electric vehicle might just be the choice for you. The team at San Francisco Honda has put together a guide detailing the benefits of electric vehicles below, so read on!



Benefits of Electric Vehicles

From high performance to smooth handling to tax credits, there are a lot of benefits to owning an electric car. They’re full of the latest technology and are designed to be easy to maintain on the streets of Daly City. Check out some of our favorite benefits below:

  • Zero emissions: One of the most significant environmental benefits of electric cars is almost zero tailpipe emissions. In fact, most electric vehicles don’t even need an exhaust system, so there are no exhaust emissions while it’s running!
  • Renewable energy: Among the environmental benefits of electric vehicles is their ability to use renewable energy, meaning they can take advantage of solar power, wind power, and even water power.
  • Reduced maintenance: There are many elements of gasoline-powered vehicles – such as engine oil – that aren’t present in electric vehicles, making them easier to maintain.
  • Quieter drive: One of the most noticeable benefits of electric vehicles is their smooth, serene ride – no loud engine, no commotion in the cabin.
  • Performance: Those drivers worried that the environmental benefits of electric vehicles sacrifice performance can breathe easy – electric cars have some of the best performance around, with near-instantaneous torque from the electric motor.

What to Do Before Buying an EV From San Francisco Honda

  1. Ready Your Garage: Although public chargers are becoming more common, it’s still a good idea to have a Level 1 or 2 charger installed at home so you can charge your electric vehicle yourself. Level 1 and 2 offer different charging times, so make sure you’ve done a bit of research before buying.
  2. Locate Nearby charging stations: Check out what public fast-charging stations are available in your area, such as PlugShare or Chargeway. It’s also a good idea to map out any road trips you’re planning on taking and seeing what public chargers are available on the route, so you can charge up your EV if necessary.
  3. Research incentives: Electric vehicles often come with a wide variety of incentives and tax credits, much more than their gasoline counterparts. You may even qualify for a $7,500 tax credit when you buy an EV!
