Why Choose an Electric Vehicle?

November 23, 2021 | Blog

Are you in the market for a new vehicle? Choosing an electric car will have you adventuring in an innovative and life-saving way! Electric vehicles (also known as EVs) come in three major categories:

  • Battery electric cars: Run with electricity stored in a battery pack.
  • Plug-in hybrids: These combine gas or diesel engines with an electric motor and a large rechargeable battery.
  • Fuel cell cars: The motor is run by electricity produced by split electrons from hydrogen molecules.

No matter which type you choose, electric vehicles have many advantages over traditional fuel cars. Here are our top five reasons you should choose an electric vehicle.

1. Eco-Friendly

Electric vehicles do their part in lessening the carbon footprint by producing far less emissions than their counterparts. By not emitting polluted air, EVs emit only a third of lifetime emissions compared to gas-powered cars. This feature makes electric vehicles a great choice when thinking about how you can reduce your contribution to global warming.

2. Spend Less on Gas

Gas prices are increasing, and it feels like there’s no end in sight. Fueling up your gas-powered car is getting incredibly expensive. In the U.S., the median savings of switching to an electric vehicle is up to $1,000 a year from cutting gasoline costs alone! And with more and more charging stations being installed around the country, it’s getting easier and easier to charge up electric vehicles. Imagine not needing to spend extra money on gas on your local trips because you’ve charged up your car from the comfort of your own home.

3. Cost-Effective

Due to the nature of electric vehicles, maintenance costs are considerably lower than that of gas-fueled vehicles. Electric cars don’t require things such as oil changes, transmission servicing, air filter replacements, and more. The average EV owner saves over $1,500 on maintenance costs alone over the gas-powered car owner!

4. Better Performance

Electric vehicles provide the driver with a better driving experience by generating torque instantly. This design feature allows the vehicle to accelerate and deaccelerate at a much faster rate than fuel cars. In other words, you’ll be smoothly driving off and coming to a stop with your EV. They also have a low center of gravity that improves the handling and responsiveness of your vehicle.

5. Convenience

One of the most convenient things about having an EV is the option to have a residential charging station installed in your home. You won’t have to worry about stopping somewhere to charge. You’ll be able to charge your vehicle in your own driveway!

What Our Customers Say

Professional Service!

Furnace went out during this ridiculous weather and Bud Anderson was the only place I could get through to. First, they made sure I had another heat source (I did) then they arrived very quickly considering the weather. Problem was solved in a timely fashion and now my wife and kids will be very happy! Very professional service!

Great Customer Service!

I called other companies; some couldn’t get me in for 2 weeks or never called back. Due to having no power in multiple outlets throughout my home, Bud Anderson was able to schedule me first thing in the morning. I like the text updates, who your Technician will be, as well as they are on their way. Dwayne was professional, knowledgeable, and explained everything. Great Customer Service skills! Thank-you~

Quick Response!

Service call scheduled and completed in a quick manner. Aaron definitely knows heating and air systems and took the time to explain the issues and come up with a maintenance plan in the future. I strongly recommend this company.
