Some Benefits of Driving an Electric Vehicle!

Date: August 27, 2021

Electric vehicles are quickly becoming mainstream and for good reason. Not only has this lead to costs for electric cars dropping, but there are also a wide variety of benefits for drivers to make the switch. From the environmental impact to the savings you can make on fuel, tax, and maintenance costs, electric vehicles could help you save significant amounts of money.

 

Cost-effective

There was a time where they were expensive but over time with more people showing interest and more companies developing electric vehicles, prices have become more affordable. Electric vehicles offer an excellent long-term value and are an excellent investment for those looking for a cheaper, more efficient way to get around. The cost of buying an electric car much like any regular car varies depending on the make, model, and features.

 

Cheaper to maintain

Electric vehicles have now become just as affordable to your everyday car, the cost of running one is significantly cheaper particularly over the full lifetime of the vehicle. With the lower cost of electricity and reduced maintenance requirements, you could spend far less on an electric vehicle than you do on your current car.

 

Fully electric cars are designed to be as efficient as possible and unlike a petrol car that uses a single engine, the electric car consists of 3 main components powering the vehicle; the onboard charger, inverter, and motor. This means there is far less wear and tear on the car and little stress on the motor. All this means you’ll rarely have to have your EV serviced and if you have to, the running and repair costs are minimal.

 

Better for the environment

Fully electric cars have zero tailpipe emissions making them greener, cleaner, and better for the environment than petrol or diesel cars. Fewer emissions mean reduced greenhouse gasses, enabling us to move towards sustainable, renewable sources of electricity. With newer technology helping create even more environmentally-friendly batteries and even more efficient, quieter EV motors, the future of driving is something to look forward to.

 

Efficient charging at home (and at your local Green Storage location)

Everyone has dreamed of leaving their house every time with a full tank. Electric cars can make that reality come to life. Charging your EV at home is cost-efficient, simple, and fast. You can very easily install a compact, all-weather home charging unit outside your home.

 

Once installed, you can charge your EV by simply plugging in the charging cable when you’ve parked up just like you would charge your smartphone. Rapid chargers can speed up the process, even more, charging most cars to about 80% in under an hour. You never have to worry about your tank ever again.


Furthermore, Green Storage tenants are welcome to charge their electric vehicles at one of our two Level 2 EV charging ports on-site, free of charge! Get a convenient top up while accessing your unit at any one of our locations. This is another way we’re trying to encourage the community to live a sustainable and healthy lifestyle!

 

The electric future

The benefits of driving electric cars are clear. With impressive new technologies currently being developed, electric cars have only started and will go a long way. They are more efficient and easy to use and can help bring incredible change to our environment. There has never been a better time to switch to driving an EV.
