Are you in the market for a new Hammond commuter that’s better for the environment and your pocketbook as well?

Moreover, what are the environmental benefits of electric cars? Keep reading to learn more, and be sure to reach out to us if you have any questions. We’d love to be of service!



The Core Benefits of Electric Vehicles

With the great number of benefits that come with electric vehicle ownership, it’s not hard to see why so many people are starting to make the change from hybrid to electric – or in some cases straight from gas to electric! Check out some of the reasons people are making the switch:

  • Zero Emissions: There are a few environmental benefits of electric cars, but the fact that they give off zero toxic emissions is probably one of the greatest!
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they can make use of renewable energy sources for charging. While this transition hasn’t been completed nationwide, many charging stations garner power from solar panels and energy from local hydroelectric dams!
  • Reduced Maintenance: No more oil changes – there’s no oil to be changed!
  • Quieter Drive: A huge benefit of electric vehicles is that they produce little to no engine noise and therefore have a much quieter cabin.
  • Performance: Ever heard of a little thing called torque? The average electric vehicle produces torque figures you wouldn’t believe. That means getting off the line on track day happens faster than most gas vehicles can achieve!

There’s a handful of other benefits of electric vehicles, and we suggest giving us a call at 708-621-5990 to discuss them – or check out more details on a Ford vehicle like the 2022 Ford Mach-E Mustang!

Bonus: What to Do Before Going EV

  1. Prepare Your Garage: Charging stations are becoming more common, but they’re not quite everywhere we’d like them to be yet. Research your home charging options and set up your garage to charge your vehicle at level 1 or 2 charging speeds right in the security of your garage.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: While they’re not everywhere yet, it’s still a good idea to map out a list of local charging stations or make a map of them for a long road trip.
