Should I Buy an Electric Car in Los Angeles?

2023 Nissan Ariya charging

Have you seen gas prices lately? They’re not going down any time soon, cities like Los Angeles, Huntington Park, and South Gate are already expensive places to live. You don’t need gas prices adding to your finances. Discover why an affordable electric car from Nissan of Downtown L.A. is totally worth it.


Affordable Electric Cars for Los Angeles Residents

You’ve probably seen that many electric cars have price tags above $60,000. That’s about to change as many more models come on the market. Nissan in particular is an affordable brand, and they are some of the most reliable EVs on the market thanks to top-of-the-line batteries designed with help from NASA. A new 2023 Nissan Leaf EV starts at $29,8600, and if you need a reliable SUV, reserve your all-new Nissan Ariya right now to get on the list. Incentives from the federal and state governments can also make your purchase even more affordable. Nissan has been selling its Leaf since 2010, earning an enviable track record for reliability as well as reducing carbon emissions.

California Power Grid and Electric Cars

In early September 2022, California asked residents to pause charging their electric vehicles for fear the power grid wouldn’t be able to handle the load. That was an extreme weather event. Under ordinary circumstances, EVs have a minimal impact on the power grid because they mostly charge at night. California’s power can handle electric cars and the extra load cars are putting on the grid right now and for years to come in Los Angeles.

Should I Buy an Electric Car Now or Wait?

Absolutely, you should buy an electric vehicle now. More government incentives are coming online, and with gas prices routinely above $5 a gallon in LA, it’s much cheaper to fill up on electricity than on unleaded. Further, the more our country relies on electric vehicles, the less impacted we’ll be by fluctuating gas prices around the world!

If you need something bigger than a Leaf for your family, the Nissan Ariya continues to impress drivers, and it may well be the new EV SUV king after more models are released to the public. Better still, it has a relatively low price point.
