Benefits of Electric Vehicles

2023 Nissan Ariya charging

Wondering what the benefits of electric cars are compared to standard gasoline vehicles, or even hybrid-electric vehicles? As it happens, electric vehicles — or EVs as they’re often called — offer several unique benefits that you won’t get with most other cars, leading to a large portion of Huntington Park area drivers choosing this type of alternative energy vehicle as their next car. Wondering if you should do the same? Check out the savings and environmental benefits of electric cars you could experience by making the switch with Nissan of Downtown L.A.! Then, explore two Nissan EV models, the Nissan LEAF and Nissan ARIYA.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

EVs are getting more and more popular around Downey and Bell Gardens, and for many a good reason. They’re not only more efficient and less environmentally deleterious than gasoline cars, but they’re also full of the latest technologies and safety features. Here are some other pertinent benefits of EVs:

  • Reduced Maintenance: Engine oil isn’t required in EVs, so they make regular oil changes a thing of the past!
  • Quieter Drive: EVs are quiet and have very little road noise compared to gasoline cars.
  • Zero Emissions: Near zero emissions and no tailpipe mean that driving an EV is much cleaner and more environmentally friendly than driving a gasoline vehicle. 
  • Renewable Energy: Looking to power your vehicle with solar, wind, or even water power? With an EV, you can do that! Not so with a gas car.
  • Performance: Electric motors are capable of producing near-instantaneous torque so you can still find thrill on your drives. In fact, the performance of EVs is often far superior to the performance of gasoline-powered vehicles.

What to Do Before Buying an EV

While EVs have many advantages over gasoline vehicles, that’s not to say that you shouldn’t try to prepare for your EV as best you can. Here are the main ways to do that:

  1. Prepare Your Home Garage: Home EV charging will likely be the main way to power your vehicle. Public charging is available, but not quite ubiquitous yet. Research your options (Level 1 and Level 2 charging setups offer different charging times). Then, have your at-home charging system installed. 
  2. Locate Local EV Charging Stations: Map out where local charging stations are compared to your home and office. Companies like PlugShare and Chargeway are offering more and more stations.
  3. Explore Incentives: EVs are often eligible for more incentives and tax credits than gas vehicles. In fact, you may be able to secure up to a $7,500 tax credit just by buying an electric car!
