Check out the following guide on the benefits of electric vehicles, then head to our inventory of electric and hybrid cars to see what we have available!

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles are an increasingly popular choice for drivers because of all the advantages they offer. Packed full of new technology, great for the environment, and lower-maintenance than their gasoline counterparts, an electric vehicle might be just the thing to take your Lebanon rides to the next level. Check out some of our favorite benefits of electric cars:

  • Low Emissions: Electric vehicles produce almost zero tailpipe emissions – most don’t even have exhaust systems so there are no exhaust emissions when running the vehicle!
  • Take Advantage of Renewable Energy: Also in the category of environmental benefits, electric cars can use renewable energy sources like solar power, wind power, and hydropower.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Without oil, full electric vehicles have no need of regular oil changes, greatly cutting down on your maintenance costs.
  • Soothing Rides: One of the most recognizable advantages of an electric vehicle is that it has no engine noise, making for a quiet and serene cabin when driving.
  • Instant Performance: Electric vehicles are famous for their powerhouse performance thanks to near-instantaneous torque from the electric motor.

There’s a whole lot more to love when it comes to electric vehicles – stop by our dealership or contact our office for more of our favorites!

What to Do Before Buying an EV

If you’ve recently bought an electric vehicle but haven’t brought it home yet, or if you’re planning on buying one, there are a few things you should take care of so you can be ready when it arrives!

  • Prepare the garage: While public fast-charging stations are becoming more and more common, you’ll want to be doing most of your car charging at home. There are usually two charging setups to choose from, offering different levels of charging times, so pick out your favorite and arrange to have it installed before the car arrives.
  • Find local charging stations: Even if you do your charging at home, it’s good to know where the nearest public charging stations are just in case. Particularly if you’re planning on taking your car out on road trips, make notes on your route of where the most convenient public stations are.
  • Explore incentives: There are plenty of incentives and tax credits to take advantage of if you drive an electric car – be sure to check them out!
