Benefits of Electric Cars

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV charging while parked

If you’re searching for a new electric car or SUV in Daytona Beach but aren’t sure if they’re right for you, then perhaps a plug-in hybrid vehicle like the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is right for you. What are the benefits of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles? Daytona Mitsubishi has the details!

Popular Benefits of Electric Vehicles

What exactly are the benefits of electric cars that are getting an increasing number of Port Orange and Ormond Beach shoppers curious about this unique class of vehicle? There are plenty. Broadly speaking, though, there are both financial and environmental benefits of electric cars. Let’s explore both some more below:

  • Reduced Maintenance: Electric cars have no oil, and thus, no oil changes. They also don’t require other maintenance and repairs associated with combustion-powered vehicles. 
  • Zero Emissions: One of the major environmental benefits of electric cars is that they put out no tailpipe emissions.
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can be charged using renewable resources such as solar, wind, or even hydroelectric power.
  • Quieter Drive: Electric vehicles don’t have the clatter of engine noise you hear with a gas or diesel motor, so there’s less noise in the cabin, too.
  • Performance: Electric cars provide unbeatable performance. The electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque for put-you-back-in-your-seat-thrilling acceleration off the line.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

It’s not just the benefits of electric vehicles that you should consider. You should also think about steps you’ll need to take to make the switch to all-electric driving easier. That said, Daytona Mitsubishi has you covered; here’s what to do:

  1. Prepare Your Home Garage: Public EV charging stations are becoming more ubiquitous around Palm Coast, but they’re not quite commonplace like gas stations yet. That said, you’ll want to be sure that your home garage is prepared for at home overnight charging. Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times). Then, have your at-home charging system installed.
  2. Locate Nearby Charging Stations: Get out the map and find charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway in addition to any brand-specific chargers you can use based on the particular EV you drive. While, when traveling long-distance, you should map out your route, it’s just as essential to have a mindmap of local charging stations near places you frequently visit so you can plan your routes accordingly and know where to go in the even of a charging emergency.
  3. Research Potential Incentives: EVs are often eligible for more incentives and tax credits than their gasoline automotive brethren. In fact, you may be able to secure up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car! Call 386-259-1599 to learn more!
