Are you ready to hit the streets of Sunnyvale or San Francisco in your all-new electric vehicle (EV)? Electric vehicles do not have gasoline engines, which eliminates over a dozen mechanical components that would otherwise need to be serviced on a regular basis. Oil changes, cooling system flushes, gearbox servicing, air filter changes, spark plugs, drive belts, and other maintenance are all avoided when you drive electric. Premier Nissan of Fremont in the Fremont area has service and sales professionals to help you with any and all of your needs. Contact us today!
Like any other car, electric vehicles are designed with safety as a top priority. They are subjected to the same crash tests and must also meet electric vehicle-specific criteria. Let's talk about the safety of electric vehicles in terms of weather, accidents, and the charging procedure. Electric vehicles, according to research, are as safe as or safer than gasoline and diesel-powered automobiles. Indeed, according to the head of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), “we can now say with confidence that making the U.S. fleet more environmentally friendly doesn’t require any compromises in terms of safety.”
Electric cars, according to studies, are considerably better for the environment than gasoline-powered vehicles. They produce fewer greenhouse gases and pollutants into the atmosphere than gasoline or diesel vehicles. This includes their manufacturing as well as the electricity needed to keep them functioning. Electric vehicles require a lot of energy to manufacture. Even after accounting for battery manufacture, electric cars are still a more environmentally friendly option. This is due to the lower emissions produced over the vehicle's lifetime.
Electric vehicles are less expensive to operate and maintain. EVs have higher initial purchase prices, but owners can save a lot on operational costs over time. The cost of the battery is a major factor in the pricing of an electric car. EV battery costs have been continuously reducing as technology improves and EV production increases and are predicted to continue to reduce. Electricity is closely controlled and generated on-site from a variety of sources. Electricity rates have been relatively consistent (about $1 per gallon equivalent) and are likely to remain so in the future, owing to the lower cost of renewable energy sources, which account for the majority of new electricity generation coming online. Furthermore, switching to electric vehicles on a big scale would very likely cut electricity bills for customers of electric utility companies.
In recent years, the number of charging stations in the United States has gradually increased, and this trend is projected to continue as federal, state, and municipal governments boost their investments in charging infrastructure. Additionally, as more Americans purchase electric vehicles, new tools such as smartphone apps and other smart gadgets have emerged to aid in the discovery of charging stations.
