The Benefits of Electric Cars

EV Charging Station with Chevy Models


These days, the best gas mileage is no gas mileage. Quieter, smoother, more convenient, dramatically more efficient, and generally much faster than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, there’s a reason electric cars are seen as the immediate future. Here, Dan Cummins Auto Group discusses some of the benefits of electric vehicles below. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

What Are the Benefits of Electric Vehicles?

Getting right into it, there are quite a few benefits of electric cars, especially for those who prefer long-term savings and do most of their driving without leaving the in the Paris/Lexington/Georgetown region. Here are some of the perks:

  • Zero Emissions: The environmental benefits of electric cars are obvious. Even with the mined lithium needed to build them, and even if they are running off a standard non-renewable powerplant’s electricity, electric cars still come out ahead of even the cleanest ICE vehicles.
  • Renewable Energy: Another one of the major environmental benefits of electric cars is that they can be run even partially on renewable energy. Homes with access to solar, wind, or geothermal power can even further expand your already-high cost savings from not paying for gasoline.
  • Reduced Maintenance: With only a dozen or fewer moving parts making up the entire powertrain, including gearbox and cooling system, electric vehicles simply have fewer parts that can break, making them much tougher in concept than ICE vehicles. 
  • Quieter Drive: Electric motors make a quiet whir around town at most, and generally no noise at all, making trips through Louisville and Cincinnati all the more relaxed.
  • Performance: The laws of physics dictate that the explosive shockwaves that propel ICE vehicles are not just less efficient than the direct electron-motivated drive of electric cars, but also much slower to respond. Instant torque leads to instant and impressive acceleration from even the slowest mainstream EVs.
