Electric vehicles run on an electric motor rather than an engine. The EV utilizes a battery pack to power the electric motor. Rather than refueling, it must be charged via a charging station since it runs on electricity.
There are several types of EVs you’ll want to consider, such as:
- Electric Vehicles (EVs): Powered solely with an electric battery without any gas engine parts. Typically, they’re capable of fast charging and L2 charging.
- Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs): These vehicles are powered by both electrical and diesel or gasoline. They feature a battery pack and an internal combustion engine.
- Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs): Similar to a Hybrid, however, they use a bigger battery and an electric motor.
So which type of EV is right for me?
Electric vehicles are best for people who value emissions-free driving and want to save money on fuel. Hybrids are the most affordable option, and they prefer the flexibility to go from electric to gas. If you’re on a budget or plan to drive long distances, hybrid vehicles are your best bet. PHEVs are best for those who have short commutes since operating on electricity is cheaper than gas.
Below are the advantages you can expect from switching to electric vehicles:
- Cost savings: Many states and local utilities offer tax incentives.
- No more stopping at the gas station: Charge your car at home, work, or the hundreds of thousands of charging stations across the US.
- Zero emissions: No more harmful CO2 emissions.
- Regenerative braking: The brakes convert energy into electricity to help recharge their battery.
- Quick acceleration: The electric motor delivers instant torque resulting in a smooth driving experience.
