The Benefits of Owning an Electric Vehicle

Why go electric? Here are some of the benefits a driver will experience when they opt for an electric vehicle.

Lower Refueling Costs

With an electric vehicle, you won't have to worry about refueling with gasoline like a conventional vehicle. Instead, you will refuel your vehicle by charging it, either at home or by visiting one of the thousands of available public charging stations. For many drivers, charging their electric vehicle will be more affordable than filling up a conventional vehicle at a gas station.

Environmental Impact

It's no secret that gas-powered cars have a negative impact on the environment. Since many of us in the Highland area need cars to get around, it's nice to know that electric vehicles offer an alternative for drivers looking to cut down on their impact on the environment. With an electric vehicle, you can expect to emit zero tailpipe emissions as you drive to and from your destinations.

Ease of Charging

With an electric vehicle for sale at Steve Schmitt Highland, you can expect charging to be surprisingly easy. With the affordability of electric vehicle chargers, you can easily obtain a charger for at-home charging, giving you the ability to charge overnight or quickly before last-minute errands. There are also thousands of public charging stations available across the country, so you can charge your electric vehicle quickly at your workplace or on the go as you head to your favorite destinations around town.

Electric Vehicle Charging FAQs

How Much is an Electrical Vehicle Charger?

For many drivers in the Litchfield area, a top concern for owning an electric vehicle is the affordability of a high-quality electric vehicle charger. However, the price for electric vehicle chargers is more affordable now than ever before - and the prices just keep on dropping. Many drivers will love the speed of a 240-volt charger, which will only cost between $500 to $1,000.

How Long Does it Take to Charge a Vehicle?

For your electric vehicle, the time to charge will vary depending on a variety of factors, including its size, your charger type, and the vehicle's battery type. For example, with the upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, you can charge this capable electric vehicle in just seven hours with a 240-volt charger. That's over 250 miles of driving on a full charge by just plugging in this vehicle overnight.

Where Can I Charge My Electric Vehicle in Public?

Since electric vehicles have grown more and more popular, the public infrastructure for charging stations has grown right alongside it. When you drive around the Highland area, you will likely notice plenty of public charging stations popping up on your route to work or as you're running errands around town. At these public charging stations, you can quickly charge your electric vehicle as you're on the road. Even if you're outside the Highland area, you can access this vast, ever-growing network of public charging stations.
