IN FUEL COST
The cost to power an electric vehicle is less than a third of the cost of a standard combustion engine. That includes the cost of the electric for charging your vehicle at home!
Battery EV’s need no oil changes, spark plugs, transmission flushes, etc.
The number of moving parts in an electric engine is a tiny percentage compared to a standard combustion engine; meaning, far fewer maintenance requirements, far fewer things that go wrong. Saving you money, time, and hassle. Battery EV’s don’t need oil changes, spark plugs, transmission flushes, etc. The cost to power an electric vehicle is less than a third of the cost of a standard combustion engine. That includes the cost of the electric for charging your vehicle at home!
EV’s generate more torque, moving the vehicle forward more quickly. The motor in an EV doesn’t need a transmission. So no need to route through a drivetrain, which saves time, allowing for instant acceleration.
EV’s use regenerative braking, relying much less on friction brakes. Standard friction brakes experience brake fade, the reduction of stopping power that occurs after repeated application. When going down a long hill, heat builds up on the braking surfaces and causes temporary loss of braking power. You don’t have to worry about this with EV’s. Because the vehicle relies less on the friction brakes, the brakes last longer.
Electric vehicles have proven themselves to be just as safe or safer than traditional vehicles. Risk of auto fire is significantly decreased. EV’s are powered by Lithium-ion batteries, which are far less flammable than gasoline.
In collision tests, EV’s have been shown to perform better than standard vehicles. Over all, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concluded that the likelihood of passenger injuries in crashes involving electric vehicles is lower!
Combustion engines produce a constant vibration, as well as noise pollution. Drivers experience less fatigue when driving electric vehicles, which are virtually silent and a consistent smooth ride.
EV’s produce less greenhouse gases than their conventional counterparts, even when the electricity used to power the EV comes from non-renewable energy sources. The emissions performance of EV’s continues to improve as more of grid power is replaced with wind and solar.
Many EV owners are choosing to pair their EV with solar panels in their homes, installed by companies like MOXIE. When powered exclusively by renewable energy, EV’s operate nearly emission free!
