Environmental Benefits of EVs

Some of the key environmental benefits of electric cars include:

  • Zero Emissions: When you drive an electric vehicle in St Louis Park, you will experience close to zero tailpipe emissions. In fact, most electric cars don’t have an exhaust system at all, so exhaust emissions are non-existent.  
  • Renewable Energy: EVs are powered by electricity, which can come from renewable sources like solar, wind, or even water power.
  • Eco-Friendly Materials: More and more automakers are incorporating lightweight, eco-friendly, and durable recycled and organic materials into their EVs. 

Ownership Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Your Minneapolis ownership experience will be a lot easier and more convenient when you choose an EV. Here are some ownership benefits of electric vehicles:

  • Reduced Maintenance: Electric vehicles do not require motor oil, so you don’t need to keep up with regular oil changes. That’s one less thing to worry about when it comes to automotive maintenance.
  • Warranty Coverage: Electric vehicles typically come backed by more extensive warranty coverage for the battery packs installed, so you can have peace-of-mind knowing that you will be taken care of if needed.
  • Quieter Drive: One of the major benefits of electric cars that you will instantly notice is the quiet ride.Electric vehicles don’t necessarily have any engine noise so there’s less commotion in the cabin.
  • Potential Tax Incentives: A federal income tax credit of up to $7,500 is available for eligible electric vehicles. There are also a number of other EV incentives offered to Minnesota drivers that can make owning an electric vehicle even more cost effective.
